A beautiful way to spend the day. The scenery is breathtaking. Make sure you take the time to stop and enjoy all that is to be seen. Fantastic.

I would rave about the 17 mile drive. The drive was okay. There were a couple of nice pull offs and vista points, however, I feel that you can get better views for free anywhere off of Hwy 1. The biggest thing that bothered me was having to pay to drive on the road. Also, coming from Carmel, the entire... More

What a beautiful drive!! Make sure you stop and just look and the beauty!! The lonely cypress is great, hard to believe that the tree has stood there for such a long time!

Pack a gourmet lunch and stop at one of the scenic spots that have picnic tables. There's beaches as well in between the rocky areas. It can get windy at times, so, bring a sweatshirt or jacket. We saw a whale breach close to shore on our last visit.

There is lots to see on this drive. The views are stunning, houses something to behold. Get a map when you enter. It is really helpful.

We loved this drive so much, we did it twice!! It costs $10 to go on 17 Mile Drive, but if you eat at a restaurant or purchase an item along the drive you get your $10 back. We ate breakfast at Pebble Beach both times we made the drive. Take your time and stop at all the marked places.... More

My wife & I visited seventeen mile drive four years ago & I wasn't sure whether I wan't to pay ten bucks again but I'm glad my wife persuaded me. It was a beautiful day, we took many pics of Lone Cypress, Cypress Point Lookout, Point Joe and Restless Sea. The highlight is definitely Pebble Beach Golf Club. The most... More

It was just a bay and a beach that could not be accessed, and often could not be seen clearly through thick wire fences. Not particularly picturesque, not worth the ten dollars. Go to Big Sur, which is stupendous, and free

This is a nice drive but it is still just a drive through a high end neighborhood. If your going to Pebble Beach anyway then I recommend it but you can drive around Carmel, Pacific Grove, Monterey, and Sea Side and see the same stuff for free. It costs 10.00 to get on 17 Mile Drive. The 10.00 isn't a... More
