California:
Hearst Castle

Hearst Castle is located at 750 Hearst Castle Rd, San Simeon, California Central Coast. It was built for William Randolph Hearst, the publishing tycoon, between 1919 and 1947. Casa Del Monte, Casa Del Mar and Casa Del Sol were built as guest houses.

We visited Hearst Castle on May 22, 2014. We drove from Monterey and got a lot of traffic jams due to road construction. We were late and could tour only grand rooms and grounds.
