We are happy to announce the dates for our 2017 tours at Pacifica’s famous landmark – Sam’s Castle. 

The castle, built in 1908, boasts a long colorful history. Come and take a guided room-by-room historical  tour led by Bridget Oates, the author of the Sam’s Castle book. The 1.5 hour event includes light refreshments and time to revel in the whimsy of this seaside treasure.

The monthly tours are $30/per guest and tickets are limited, so please reserve early.

This year, we are also hosting a special tea & tour event in May & December. The two-hour tea & tour is $50 per guest and includes a guided tour with a sit-down tea. Signed books are available for purchase online with your tour ticket or at the time of your tour.

These events are for adults only and we ask that women refrain from wearing spike heels to preserve the beautiful floors.
