Rides and Destinations: Hearst Castle, San Simeon, California

Make a stop on the Pacific Coast Highway midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco in the Santa Lucia Mountains to visit and tour the historic Hearts Castle.


What: Hearst Castle, 750 Hearst Castle Road, San Simeon, California, 93452, (800) 444-4445. Tickets start at $25 per adult, and they’re worth every penny.

How to Get There: Find your way to the Pacific Coast Highway, head north from Los Angeles or south from San Francisco.

Best Kept Secret: Nearby Cambria. Spend the night in a B&B or any of several hotels. The restaurants in Cambria are reasonably priced, and if there’s a bad one, we haven’t found it.

Don’t Miss: The Hearst Castle movie in the Visitor Center. It’s good, and it provides a deeper perspective on William Randolph Hearst and his California castle.
