Where can you see zebras and cows grazing together on the coast against the backdrop of a castle? At Hearst Castle, of course! Located 45 miles north of San Luis Obispo is La Cuesta Encantada® – The Enchanted Hill® – once home to the newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst from 1919 until 1947. Hearst Castle is now maintained as a state historic monument and is open to viewing from the public daily. The castle features 127 acres of gardens, terraces, pools, 165 rooms in four houses, a movie theater, an airfield and even a zoo. You can even get to Hearst Castle without a car, if you’re up to the challenge!
