Escape From L.A.: Cambria

As a freelancer, I'm always looking to take my work on the road. Fortunately, on any given day I can work from a hotel room, restaurant or camping spot. As many in L.A. are becoming a part of the freelance economy, I thought I'd share some of my favorite travel spots for when you just want to get out of the house to write, code or catch up on invoices.

Cambria is one of my favorite haunts outside of Los Angeles. Just a five hour drive, you can be there before lunch. It's a great change of scenery and provides some welcome new distractions.

Here's a slideshow of some of the places to hit if you make the trek.
