Hearst Castle Northern California
Hearst Castle sits on a beautiful hillside near the small city of San Simeon in Northern California. Home to an eclectic mix of architecture and fine works of art, Hearst Castle is now a state historical landmark for our viewing pleasure.
Hearst Castle offers three ongoing tours and a evening tour during spring and fall.[i] My friends and I took the Grand Rooms Tour, which also grants access to the gardens and pools. You can purchase tickets upon arrival at the visitor center or online, I suggest you buy them in advance.
You depart to the castle by bus up a long winding road to the top of the hill. The views from the castle are phenomenal! The beautiful Neptune Pool was under renovation during our visit but we still got some great pictures. I highly recommend watching the free IMAX movie on how the idea for this beautiful place came to Mr. Hearst before taking your tour.
