**Elephant Seals, Hearst Castle and Coastal Hwy Drive–http://hearstcastle.org/plan-your-trip/area-attractions/elephant-seals/ A drive up the coast is a great way to explore the coastal towns. Visiting the elephant seals is free and worth the drive especially during birthing and mating season. On the drive up you will be able to view Hearst Castle from the highway and potentially see our local heard of Zebras that graze along the route. Take a picnic lunch or stop at one of the great town along the way for a fun meal.
