Hearst Castle coupons are rare, but when available they can allow visitors to the California attraction to save money on admission. Typically, the only discounts offered by the attraction are the Distinguished Veteran Pass and other state park discounts. However, group discounts are also available for 12 or more people, and tour companies often offer package deals that include Hearst Castle.[1]

Located in San Simeon, California, the Hearst Castle estate is sprawled across 90,080 square feet, and features 56 bedrooms, 61 bathrooms, 19 sitting rooms, and 41 fireplaces.[2] Considered one of the largest historic house museums in the United States, Hearst Castle hosted its first tour on June 2, 1958.[3] The attraction, which took 28 years to build, hosted over 646,027 tours in 2009.[1]
