San Simeon

— 2 nights
When you arrive in tiny San Simeon, which lies halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, you can see why William Randolph Hearst chose this coastal locale for his famous hilltop castle.
Change things up with these side-trips from San Simeon: Big Sur (Hawthorne Gallery, Pfeiffer State Beach, &more). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Hearst Castle, enjoy the sand and surf at Piedras Blancas, stroll through William Randolph Hearst Memorial Beach, and enjoy the sea views from Piedras Blancas Light Station.

For photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our San Simeon online vacation builder.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 82°F, and evening lows to 48°F.
