Hearst Castle

The Castle in the Sky and In the Fog! Located on the Central Coast of California near San Simeon. The Hearst Castle is the property of the State of California and is maintained as a State Historic Park. Open for public tours for a fee.

Interesting Fact:  Despite Hearst Castle’s location, it attracts about 1 million visitors per year.

Just Imagine Being a Guest of William Randolph Hearst at Hearst Castle in its heyday in the 20’s and 30’s! I love the style of the 20’s – the way the men and women dressed back then just impresses me. The Hearst Castle was designed by architect Julia Morgan between 1919 and 1947. What a HUGE Undertaking!
