Hearst Castle is open and can be reached from the north via Highway 101 to Paso Robles, and from the south via Cambria and Paso Robles.

Hearst Castle, one of California’s top vacation attractions, is located on Highway 1 along the majestic Central Coast of California. Nestled in the hills above the village of San Simeon, the Castle sits halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles and is approximately a four hour drive from either of these metropolitan areas. You can take a train from Los Angeles to San Luis Obispo and continue to the front door of the Visitor Center by public bus.
