The village of Cambria is situated amidst the Monterey Pines. This eclectic community offers quaint shops and artist studios with fine dining and scenic landscape. Cambria was one known as a booming mining town and was once the home of the Oceanic Quicksilver Mining Company, which was once one of the 6 largest mines in the world. By 1878 mercury prices fell and Cambria’s first economic boom ended.
Cambria was once home to William Randolph Hearst who’s castle is perched on the hillside east of Highway 1, his zebra’s can be seen amongst the cattle along the highway between Cambria and San Simeon. The castle and Hearst State Beach and pier are two main tourist stops to this day.
The Fiscalini Ranch Preserve (formerly known as the East-West Ranch) is a 430 acre park that separates Cambria's East and West Villages; it protects over a mile of spectacular Pacific Ocean coastline. The Fiscalinis were pioneering Italian Swiss dairymen, who moved into the Cambria region in the 1880s; they acquired a number of dairy farms, including what they called the Town Ranch. The Fiscalini family donated small plots of the Town Ranch as building sites for the Cambria public library, the Veterans Memorial, and a museum.
Today Cambria is home to Hearst Castle, Moonstone Beach and holiday classics like the Scarecrow Festival in the fall and Cambria Christmas Lights between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Many bed and breakfast as well as fine dining can be found along Moondstone Drive and the beach is home to various sea life such as seals, sea otters, and tide pools filled with sea anemones, sea urchins, star fish, crabs, snails and more."
