North of Los Osos - Hearst Castle is perched atop a hill in San Simeon and is more than a quarter-mile above the Pacific Ocean offering spectacular views. Hearst Castle is a stunning tribute to the incredible wealth of one of the 20th century's most important businessmen and his extravagant tastes. Julia Morgan worked hand-in-hand with Hearst for more than two decades designing and building the estate. It is spectacular!

The museum sits on a hill overlooking the Morro Bay estuary with a view of Morro Rock. It is the only natural history museum in the California State Park system. Interactive displays focus on the ecology of the Morro Bay estuary, including building a sand dune, operating the hydrologic cycle and creating food chains. Nice hiking around the property and lunch or dinner at Bayside Cafe is close by.

Significant history and panoramic views. It sits on one of the finest beaches in Central California. What’s not to love? Cayucos began to evolve during the Spanish Land Grant days and was originally part of the Morro Bay Cayucos Rancho. Captain James Cass built the original wharf, which channeled commerce throughout the coastal communities. Cass began construction of the pier in 1872. Originally 380 feet long, boats still had to anchor out beyond the pier as the shoreline was too shallow. In 1876, the pier was lengthened to 982 feet, allowing ships to dock right alongside. Although 40 feet of the pier were removed when the state took control, the Cayucos pier remains a central landmark of the area.
