Central Coast Tour featuring Hearst Castle & Wine Country is what to do in Los Angeles!


    When you awake, you’ll get an early bird’s start on your central coast sightseeing with a Hearst Castle and Wine Country tour.  Explore the Grand Rooms of William Randolph Hearst’s Enchanted Hill.  The fashionable extravagance offers a wonderful backdrop for photographs of your Los Angeles trip.  Hear about what drove this newspaper tycoon to construct his very own castle in what was, at the time, the middle of nowhere.  Then, explore the picturesque, seaside town of Cambria.  Savor a tasty lunch, do a little shopping, or soak up some rays on the beach before your journey into the Santa Lucia mountains for 3 different wine tastings.  Should you decide to purchase a tasting, you’ll enjoy glass after glass of Paso Robles’ award-winning vino.  Next, make use of some free time in Paso Robles by enjoying a gourmet meal, shopping for souvenirs to take home, or getting to know the locals.  But, save a little time for a good night’s sleep because you’ll be taking a scenic train trip from Paso Robles to San Francisco in the morning.  If you want to uncover the secret gems that rest between Los Angeles and San Francisco, then the 3-day L.A. to S.F. Central Coast Tour featuring Hearst Castle & Wine Country is one of the best things to do in Los Angeles!
