The Hearst Castle
The Hearst Castle is one of American’s greatest historic homes. It is located in San Simeon, California about 240 miles or 4 hours and 42 from Los Angeles. Purchase tour tickets in advance and plan to spend the day visiting the home. If you travel to San Simeon in January, you will see the massive elephant seals resting on the sea shore. It is a wonder treat to see. The Hearst Castle history and tour information can be found at http://www.hearstcastle.org/.
