Where the iconic Big Sur coastline ends, San Simeon begins. A secluded, relaxing part of California’s Central Coast, the area is a perfect stop off on a Pacific Coast Highway road trip. Home to the world famous Hearst Castle, where publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst built his own retreat high in the hills overlooking the beautiful Pacific ocean and where today visitors can explore the palatial home and grounds and get a glimpse into this opulent home and lifestyle.
San Simeon offers much more beyond the iconic Castle though. A fantastic spot to watch migratory whales, the area’s many lookouts and vistas offer unspoilt views of these kings of the ocean. Monarch butterflies also call San Simeon their temporary home, coming here at the end of their 1,000 mile migration every year. If the outdoors is your calling, the area offers outstanding hiking, camping, fishing, biking and much more.
