When you arriveĀ 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.
Elephant Seal Rookery has been added to your itinerary. Start off your visit on the 6th (Tue): explore the historical opulence of Hearst Castle, then take some stellar pictures from Ragged Point, and then look for all kinds of wild species at Elephant Seal Rookery. On the next day, kick back and relax at Pfeiffer State Beach, admire the majestic nature at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, and then admire the sheer force of McWay Falls.

To plan San Simeon vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

San Simeon is just a stone's throw from Cambria. August in San Simeon sees daily highs of 94°F and lows of 55°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 8th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive back home.
