    Hi Kathryn, I think you missed the best one...what about Cambria? 6 miles from Hearst Castle.

    I live in Cambria, Ca. now, but was born in San Jose and mostly lived in SF/Oakland. I am...still surprised no one up there really knows of us. We are so much nicer for a beach visit than SLO and really if you take 101  vs. highway 1, we are only 3 1/2 hours from SF. It is quiet and quaint but not backwoods mentality. I moved here shortly after discovering it. San Luis Obispo is fine, but I think you need to add an 11th spot just for Cambria. I have a rather unique B&B here if you need a cool place to roost whilst discovering this hidden gem.
    Cheers,
    Victoria

    Cambria is nice. It's one of my favorite places on the Central coastline, and  Moonstone beach is the only nearby beach I frequent. I live in Templeton on 46 west, so it's only a few miles for me to get to Cambria. Cambria is lovely, but I wouldn't want to live there because it's so often without power and suffers more storm, damage than many other towns and cities in the county.
