San Simeon

— 3 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.
When in San Simeon, make a side trip to see Montana de Oro State Park in Los Osos, approximately Los Osos away. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Friends of the Elephant Seal Visitor Center and Gift Shop, trek along Fiscalini Ranch Preserve, kick back and relax at Piedras Blancas, and step into the grandiose world of Hearst Castle.
