One way to keep the riff-raff out of your neighborhood is to charge ten dollars just to drive through. It's a shame they allowed contractors to build in the area instead of making it a state park.

My husband, sons and I spent a week in Monterrey visiting my husband's aunt. Upon her suggestion we decided to take the seventeen mile drive. We took lots of pretty pictures and enjoyed the views. The lone cypress makes for a pretty photo. Pebble beach, Carmel-by-the-Sea were just a couple other places where the scenery was beautiful. There were deer... More

We were very impressed with the view in the 17 mile drive. We rented a convertible to appreciate no only this gem but all the coast of California. It might be one of the best routes we have ever visited. If you are in the area this will be a MUST .... Spanish Fly Golf Course and Pebble Beach are... More

well the road goes along the coast, & you go past pebble beach golf club. We stopped along the way & took photos some included a few squirrels. As I had never seen them before so it was a bit of a hoot.

There are several entrances to 17 mile drive, one being in Carmel. There is a $10.00 admission charge (to keep down just a little bit the traffic as this is also a residential community) which can be reimbursed if one dines at one of the restaurants in the 17 mile area. In terms of the drive itself it is a... More

A beautiful and leisurely drive around world class golf courses with deer feeding along tee off, gorgeous scenery of the Pacific ocean and if you're lucky, perhaps a spout from a whale off shore.
