Spread across 745.07 acres (301.52 hectares), this South Coast jewel is nestled on top of limestone cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and is a breathtaking combination of natural beauty as well as man-made gardens. Shore Acres State Park is the former estate of Louis Simpson, a timber baron which was sold to the state in 1942. The five acres (2.02 hectares) of beautifully landscaped gardens includes a Japanese garden with a huge lily pond. The gardens are full with plants and flowers from all around the world and is always blooming throughout the year. It is the site of the yearly holiday lights when the entire estate is lit up with decorative lights. At the mansion's site is a confined observatory that offers you a vista of the towering waves and migrating gray whales. Shore Acres also has a small secluded beach where you can picnic along with elephant seals. A visit to this lovely place will be an enchanting experience.
