Where is Harmony?
Located off picturesque Highway 1, between Cambria and Cayucos, where the 46 meets the 1, and 40 minutes North of San Luis Obispo. What began as a dairy settlement of Swiss immigrants, became a stopover by celebrity guests of, and including, William Randolph Hearst. Today, the eclectic ranching town (population 18) is host to Highway 1 visitors, who love exploring the township and it’s painted cows!
