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.
Escape the urban bustle at Friends of the Elephant Seal Visitor Center and Gift Shop and Pfeiffer State Beach. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Hearst Castle and Nitt Witt Ridge. Venture out of the city with trips to Big Sur (McWay Falls & Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Piedras Blancas, stroll through Moonstone Beach, look for gifts at Red Moose Cookie Company, and trek along Fiscalini Ranch Preserve.

To find ratings, photos, and tourist information, read our San Simeon trip maker site.

July in San Simeon sees daily highs of 94°F and lows of 56°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
