Hearst Castle is so beautiful and tourists come from far away to see it, which is really neat since we live so close to it. This "castle" was built by William Randolph Hearst and everything about it is extravagant. There are tons of things that are gold-plated, beautiful swimming pools (indoor and outdoor) and the grounds and gardens are amazing. They offer several different tours because it is much too large to tour the whole thing at once. So, you have to choose which part of the castle you want to see the most. During the summer, they have nighttime tours and it is really pretty and romantic with the soft lighting. If you haven't been, I recommend checking it out. You can buy presale tickets on their website.
