San Simeon Attractions
Historial State Monument
Visit the world-famous Hearst Castle, an Historical State Monument. It's San Simeon's top tourist attraction and one of California's most popular sites.
Hearst Castle offers daily tours:
- Grand Room Tour
- Upstairs Suites Tour
- Cottages & Kitchen Tour
- Evening Tour
- Special Accessibly Designed Tours
- Holiday Twilight Tours
Advance tour reservations are strongly recommended. Tours sell out quickly. Tours include a lot of walking and stairs, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
Neptune and Roman Pools
The castle's fabulous Neptune Pool — a Greco-Roman
style outdoor pool with statues and fountains, is a sight to behold. We also liked the Roman Pool — a stunningly romantic
indoor pool lined with blue Venetian glass and gold tiles.
Tours & Events
Host a fun Theme Party or a Special Group Tour at Hearst Castle for a fun corporate event.
Christmas at the Castle
Plan a special end-of-year Incentive Tour or Holiday Party in December when the Castle
is decorated for Christmas.
Open daily, except for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas and New Year's
