"San Simeon, California" San Simeon by trvlrtom
San Simeon Travel Guide: 122 reviews and 373 photos
San Simeon is famous for one thing: Hearst Castle. If you are stopping here it is most likely to see this grand testament to one man's grand ambitions and dreams. Beautiful to some, ostentatious to others, there is no doubt that by seeing the castle you are fulfilling in some way the ambitions of William Randolph Hearst.
The State of California thankfully has obtained much of the land near this property and along the coast, preventing it from becoming an overdeveloped commercial zone. The State Park provides miles of beautiful scenery for those who venture inland, and the nearby beach is a good place to stretch your legs and clear your head after being shuffled through the castle on a tour.
