The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Hearst Tower Room available

If you ever wanted to spend the night at a Hearst property designed by Julia Morgan, here is your chance. Book a Tower Room at the Historical Hacienda, William Randolph Hearst's Rancho Milpitas — and you would swear Errol Flynn is staying next door. The added bonus is Mission San Antonio, a mile down the road. Have your ID, insurance and car registration handy because the hacienda is on Ft. Hunter Liggett property. Have a pizza at the bowling alley or enjoy a drink at historic Club Hacienda. Newly updated suites are available, but the Tower Rooms have the most Hearst-like features.

Historical Hacienda; Ft. Hunter Liggett, Calif.; (831) 386-2900, Tower Rooms $90 a night; other rooms from $55 a night.
