13. Hearst Castle

Hearst Castle

Speaking of which, smack dab in the middle of California lies Hearst Castle.

This preserved, unfinished—yeah, that isn't the whole thing— 20th century mansion deserves the title of castle for it's massive size, intriguing history, and unmatched scenery.

From the castle, you'll have a great view of San Simeon as well as the rolling hills surrounding the castle.
