This 90,000-square-foot home of newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst was a society hot spot in the 1920s and '30s, thanks as much to the distinguished owner as to the lush gardens, luxe pools, sumptuous views, and private zoo. If you were lucky enough to score an invitation during the Castle's glory days, you would have stayed in one of three Mediterranean-inspired guest houses that flank the main house, dubbed "Casa Grande." Nowadays, you don't need an exclusive invitation to roam the grounds—just a ticket. The estate, now a National Historic Landmark, offers tours to anyone who wishes to see the impressive structure, landscape, and resident herd of zebras up close.
