Hearst Castle - San Simeon


Thanks to William Randolph Hearst we have the Hearst Castle in San Simeon, CA.  It truly is one of the most enchanting places in the western United States.  I love all the antiques, art, and architecture.  Some think it is a shame that so many items were removed from Europe, but after a visit to the Castle, I can honestly say that I'm grateful that Mr. Hearst was such a great collector and that we can still see and enjoy his vision.  Visit if you're in the area.
