SLO: Beaches, wine country and great resorts
Film stars like Clark Gable, Carole Lombard and Charlie Chaplain once boarded the train in Los Angeles to travel through the night up the California coast. Their destination: the palatial hilltop estate of William Randolf Hearst.

Today, the Hearst Castle is the most popular tourist attraction in San Luis Obispo County, but just a small part of what keeps people coming back to the area. Breathtaking natural beauty, beach and spa resorts, fascinating California history they're all part of a vacation on the Central Coast.
