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.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Sun): steep yourself in history at Hearst Castle. On the next day, kick back and relax at Piedras Blancas, then identify plant and animal life at Friends of the Elephant Seal, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Moonstone Beach.
