The historic swimming pools at the famously opulent private residence built by newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst will open for pool parties on selected evenings — with a $1,250-per-person ticket price. The pools have been among the most photographed parts of the 165-room mansion designed by architect Julia Morgan between 1919 and 1947. The Neptune Pool, famous for its sweeping colonnades and Italian relief sculptures, will be open 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. July 6, Aug. 3 and 24, and Sept. 21.

Begin your experience with a scenic ride up the iconic road leading to the Enchanted Hill. Then, head to historic changing rooms located off the Neptune Terrace to prepare to swim in the newly-refurbished Neptune Pool. Stroll spectacular surrounding terraces, take in the view and music, and relish a fabulous selection of fancy foods, as well as the Central Coast’s finest wines and craft beers.
