We would like to visit Hearst Castle on June 28. I've been trying to make reservations both online and over the phone for a few weeks. Finally, someone today told me that the castle is changing over its tours and nothing is available between June 27-June 30. But she wasn't able to tell me whether it was likely the castle would open its inventory at that time or not. Seems like a pretty big tourist time to be closed. Does anyone have any idea whether we will be able to get in June 28?
Also, we plan to leave Santa Monica on June 26, stayi two nights in Pismo, and then one night in Cambria, would it be worth the drive from SM to Hearst to get a tour on the 26th (last day they are available, right now). Then we would have to come back down to Pismo for our two nights.
Lastly, I know this should be on another thread, is it likely Highway 1 will be open by the end of June? If not, should we take the one day we are supposed to spend overnight in Big Sur and spend a second night in Cambria instead?
Thanks, it's our first family trip and we want to see as much as we can!
