Hearst Castle

Words cannot describe Hearst Castle - you must see it to believe it! The magnificent mansion ‘La Casa Grande’ was created from the dreams of William Randolph Hearst.

In a spectacular castle-like setting atop The Enchanted Hill overlooking the sea, it has become America’s finest castle. Circled by gardens, terraces, pools, and three palatial guest houses, Hearst Castle welcomed Hollywood stars and high society from around the world. It’s an unforgettable experience - one which the entire family will long remember!

San Francisco

San Francisco is one of the most enchanting great cities of the world - casual yet cosmopolitan and rich with history. Cable cars dating from the 1800's still climb Nob Hill from Market Street to Fisherman's Wharf. Enjoy fine restaurants, world-class shopping and a variety of entertainment. You could spend a year exploring the City's many attractions without seeing them all. Combine the fun of an Amtrak journey with the wondrous delights of San Francisco and you have a truly outstanding travel adventure!
