California 1 Discovery Route

Cambria, great as it is, is really part of a larger travel story, The California Discovery Route. It’s the ultimate coastal road trip, one you’ll want to repeat many times.

Over a long weekend you can visit a few towns but to see and do more, plan a longer stay…. a week or 10 days, at least.
