Hearst Castle

recommendation by goose

The perfect excuse to make the drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Home of the former newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst (and the caracter that inspired Orson Welles "Citizen Kane") is now open for tours, more interesting because of who he was and his insane taste than for the building itself. San Simeon is beautiful though, and just driving by the castle (you'll see it up on a far hill when driving on the 1) is worth it.
