I have to say this really is a castle in the sky as it's on the Hearst Estate where tours are given regularly. The mansion overlooks the ocean from the top of the mountain. Truly an amazing place with grounds so large that herds of animals roam freely, yes free around the entire place. You park your car and are shuttled up to the mansion. I kid you not when I tell you that every single one us sounded like little children giggling with glee as we were all surprised when a herd went by as we were driving up to the mansion. We're never too old right!!!
