“For many people around the world, San Simeon means the site of the famous castle on the hill, but this coastal town offers much more to anyone willing to spend some time uncovering its treasures. The main center of San Simeon sits about three miles south of the (Hearst Castle) castle’s entrance. Though understandably much of the town’s focus is on providing a plethora of services for the thousands of people who visit the castle each year, there are also plenty of other things to discover in San Simeon as well.
Several different restaurants offer everything from healthy New Mexican cooking, to classic Italian, to fish and chips, to a burger. You’ll also find works by talented local artists and artisans, one-of-a-kind antiques, hand-crafted jewelry, sea shells, candy, and information about the elephant seal colony located a few miles north of town. For lodging, there is a wide variety of hotels and motels, or you can camp at San Simeon State Park, which offers a 133-site developed campground and 70 in a more primitive campground. A look back at the history of San Simeon reveals that its natural beauty has been enthralling humans for centuries, and little wonder that on any given day you might spot whale spouts, fluttering Monarch butterflies, lumbering elephant seals, soaring hawks, and even a herd of zebra!” From sansimeonchamber.org
