Answer: C. William Randolph Hearst’s Ranch in San Simeon, California Publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst certainly knew how to live the high life. The Hearst Castle aka “The Enchanted Hill” is a 90,000 square foot compound with 165 rooms and 127 acres of gardens, terraces, pools and walking paths. This magnificent property features 56 bedrooms, 61 bathrooms, 19 entertaining rooms, a private cinema, zoo and airfield. It was built between 1919 and 1947 by architect Julia Morgan and cost more than 500 million in today’s dollars to construct. Overnight guests have included Charlie Chaplin, Winston Churchill and President Calvin Coolidge.

Have you ever been to Hearst Castle?  If not, put it on your list of things to do when on the Central Coast.  My friend Brian proposed to his wife Michelle there…..romantic!
