“Fantastic journey.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

This is a lovely journey and the view are great. We saw seals in a cove. We stopped at Pebble Beach Golf Club for lunch and it was lovely. When you get to the end of 17 mile Drive your right in the centre of Carmel which is a great place. We were able to drive back on the 17 Mile Drive back into Monterey which was a bonus. The houses on the drive were fab

“17 Mile Drive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Was disappointed by how many mcMansions were built along the beach. Hadn't been there since 1974 when you could walk on the beach and out to the lone pine tree.

“Incredible scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Plan on taking lots of pictures as you make the 17 mile drive. We were supposed to have gone to NAPA but do to overbookings we took a trip along the coast line to Carmel and hit the 17 mile drive along the way. Absolutely breathtaking views, a stop at Pebble Beach lodge is also recommended...take the time to see this route .

“Save your Money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

Many of the trees were decayed, the houses don't impress. Great views of the Pacific but you can get those along PCH without paying for it.
