The elephant seals are in town! December thru March they are breeding on the coast near Hearst Castle. 5 miles north of the Castle is a large parking lot for visitors and a nice walking deck to view the seals. There are at least 200 Elephant seals covering the beach. It’s a nice drive and you won’t be disappointed.
Also Cambria has their Art and Wine festival on January 25, 26,27th. For more info go to http://www.seecambria.com/artwine
