San Simeon General: 16 reviews and 16 photos


Fondest memory: Ah... I don't mind being as rich as the late Mr William Randolph Hearst.

And just to give you a rough idea how HUGE his castle really is... take a look at the photo below! I'm like a tiny little ant next to this magnificent castle!!!

Now, let's spend some time talking about the <b>SHOPPING</b> opportunities here. :-)) (<i>I just know the guys will groan at this recommendation</i>.... But hey, us WOMEN find them important, ya know?).

There's a full range of shops here to entice all visitors... like - retail specialty shops, art galleries, gift and antique shops, clothing stores, novelty and even, mini markets! Oh, and DON'T forget to visit the oldest general store on the west
coast called '<b><font color=blue>Sebastians</b></font>'.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
