San Simeon, CA
In the chronicles of the rich and famous, few things are as fascinating as how they live. Indulge your curiosity – and step back in time -- at the Hearst Castle, the sweeping California estate that media mogul William Randolph Hearst called home for more than 20 years. View the grand, 16th-century tapestries that adorn the living room. The monastery-style dining hall where he ate. The film room where he and his actress-companion kicked back. But bring your good shoes: with more than 106 stairs and nearly a mile of indoor walking, you’ve got plenty of ground to cover on this tour.
