Spring Break 2010: Day 2: San Simeon: Hearst Castle

Hearst Castle is a beautiful reflection of Mediterranean architecture. Located in San Simeon, CA, the castle sits on top of “The Enchanted Hill” overlooking the central coast. Hearst Castle is known as “America’s Castle”, and it was built by William Randolph Hearst from the early 1920s to the late 1940s. The castle includes elaborately decorated rooms and serene pools. The castle used to entertain many famous guests like Charlie Chaplain, Calvin Coolidge, and Winston Churchill. Now a California State Park, most of Hearst Castle is open to the public via guided tours. It’s definitely worth visiting.
