Hearst Castle is located 750 Hearst Castle Road, San Simeon, CA 93452-9740. On the drive up we passed fields of cows and some mountain goats. We parked at the visitor center and they bus us up to the castle to go on whatever tour you purchased. The Hearst Castle basically consists of numerous European art objects of varying degrees of quality. There are different tours available. Make sure to book the tours in advance. But you are only making a reservation and once you arrive at the Hearst Castle you will have to stand in a long line to exchange your reservation documents for actual tickets. We went on the tours of the Grand Rooms and the Upstairs Rooms. Both last around 45 minutes. There is plenty of time to see the grounds before or after the tours. We saw some of the grand rooms of the castle and heard stories about the famous guests who had stayed there. It was very entertaining. After our tour we were able to roam the grounds and look at other buildings and the beautiful landscaping and flowers as well as the amazing pools. The view of the ocean and surrounding area was gorgeous. It’s a picture-perfect scenery. We absolutely enjoy the wonderful views. Our eyes were truly fed.
