I was happy to be able to walk through town one time on a trip to the central coast to see these scarecrows. Cambria has an annual scarecrow festival.
Then after the visit to Cambria, San Simeon where Hearst Castle is located is just up the coast from there. I only went through Hearst Castle once but what i really enjoyed is walking the pier at San Simeon State Beach. It's a beautiful area.
We usually go to the coast to spend Thanksgiving with my sister and her family but we didn't plan it this year because of Covid and you have to get reservations months ahead of time to get a hotel room up there.
