San Simeon Things to Do: 66 reviews and 165 photos


The main reason, for coming to San Simeon is to visit Hearst Castle. For those who have never been here before, Tour 1 offers the best overview and is recommended. You see the outdoor pool, dining room, the indoor pool etc etc ... Tickets cost $18 for Tour 1. Don't miss to see the film about William Randolph Hearst before going to the tour. It will give you a good overviewabout the Hearst Castle. The history behind it. It is a very good movie and I learned a lot from it. The National Geographic Theatre where they show the movie is very BIG!
