It is a short drive away from beautiful beaches and several recreational lakes. Scenic California State Route 1 runs along the Pacific Ocean through San Simeon, Morro Bay, and Big Sur. Hearst Castle, a national historic landmark, sits on a hilltop in San Simeon and was newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst’s residence. For those skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts, there are several resorts a few hours east and northeast of Paso Robles including Mammoth Mountain and Lake Tahoe. Our city’s many restaurants offer fine dining, local cuisine, and local varieties of wines. Paso Robles is the home of the Mid-State Fair that hosts some of the biggest names in the music industry.
