Wow - Being a golfer this was just an amazing drive. You pay USD 10, but if you spend any money at the various golf courses you can get the money knocked off your bill. Dinner at the lodge at Pebble Beach next to the 18th green was unbelievable.

It is worth every penny of the $10.00 entry fee. If you are a golfer, you know what I am talking about. If you are not, you may pick up the sport.

I have given one star purely for the wonderful sea lions we saw, the rest wasn't worth anything. My husband renamed this the 'come and see what I have drive', as most of the drive was through a posh residential area on a golf resort. Lovely houses and a wonderful display of wealth, however I was more interested in the... More

I remember my drive through Seventeen Miles with my best friend, Jenna. It was absolutely amazing. All the beautiful trees, the winding roads, the deers... it was just spectacular. Very calm and soothing. It was a delight. Definitely recommend this drive to anyone who likes to cruise through nature.

We rented bikes from Adventure by the Sea in Monterey, cycled along the ocean through Pacific Grove and down to the Pebble Beach lodge. It was lovely though there are spots with no shoulder. Since the drivers are either sightseers going slowly or residents who are used to this, it is an easy ride even with traffic. Stop at a... More

We did do this and the girls ages 12 & 10 enjoyed it as well. One of our favorite stops was just seeing all the seals out in the water living in their natural habitat but we could hear them. It is a beautiful drive!

The homes and scenery are fantastic along this drive. There are multiple pullouts to get out of the car, wander around, take pictures and look out onto the coast. You can't help be in awe (and maybe a little jealous) of the money that is here and wonder where it all comes from and who owes these homes. A very... More

We did this drive yesterday with friends and thoroughly enjoyed it! We stopped multiple times along the way for great views and photo opportunities. Many seals to see; otters to laugh at; birds all along the way. Pebble Beach was outstanding as one would expect. Turning in to these little points of interest was east to do. Traffic wasn't an...

Real touristy thing to do. Instead take the free scenic drive in carmel by the sea.the houses and views are spectacular and very picturesque. The 17 mile drive just isn't worth it

We have done the 17 mile drive twice as I was fortunate enough to play Pebble Beach and Spyglass back in 2005. It is a very scenic drive with fabulous ocean views, huge homes, and beautiful landscaping. If you are a golf fan you will be in golf course heaven with Spanish Bay, Spyglass, Cypress, Poppy Hills, and Pebble Beach... More
