“overpriced! Highway One is Free!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Yes of course it's a beautiful part of the world but absolutely not worth paying extra for a drive that is nowhere near as beautiful as roads and towns nearby that can be seen for free. Just saying...

“It's the history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

People that gripe about paying ten bucks for this are mising the point. It's not just about the views..it's the whole Pebble Beach 1950's rich and famous thing. Yes, you can get equally beautiful views elsewhere, but there's a legend to this drive. I ould not recommend doing it on a crowded weekend in summer, but a weekday in November was perfect!

“17 Mile Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Spectacularly scenic drive-Pebble Beach golf course is amongst the stops in here--do yourself a favor-at dusk go to Spanish Bay and witness the bag piper as he plays and strolls about the golf course to reappear in front of you playing as the sun sets into the Pacific-he does this every night-people sit out on the deck with food/wine as this is taking place--take it in!!!!!

“Loved It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

For under ten dollars this is a great trip. We are golfers so to see Pebble Beach was great. We are originally from the St Andrews area so it was nice to compare championship courses. Even if you are not a golfer the drive with the various stop off points is excellent. The scenery and wildlife on view is spectacular. Go there.

“Beautiful Coastline”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

The drive is worth making at least once. You might want to do it in the opposite order they recommend. Bring a jacket, as even in summer the beaches can be breezy and brisk. Oh, and bring a camera, of course!
