A Dog-Friendly Stay by the Cambria Shore

We just returned from a short but restful weekend away with Adam’s mom and stepdad, our beloved dog Toby in tow.

We made our home at the very dog-friendly Cambria Shores Inn on Moonstone Beach in Cambria, California, perched beside a meandering boardwalk and the roiling Pacific. We got great suggestions for outdoor dining, ran pell-mell on a wide swath of blustery beach, and reconnected with our itinerant loved ones.  

Added bonus to this weekend? No need for yet another dog sitter.

Central California: Cambria

Santa Rosa Creek Road, Cambria

30 miles north of San Luis Obispo and 10 minutes past Exit 46 for Paso Robles off Highway 1, you’ll find the lovely small town of Cambria.
