Lots to see, incredible scenery and wildlife.

Feeding the gulls and listening to the sea lions roar was fun, weather was superb, many good spots to pull off to enjoy spectacular vistas... take a lunch and enjoy.

This is a must see when you are in the area. Plenty of places along the drive to get out and walk on the beach, enjoy the views and drive by some really impressive beautiful homes.

Whether to take in the scenery, gawk at the many mansions, or the incredible golf holes, clearly worth the time and the $10 fee. Stopped along the way for lunch at Pebble Beach. Be sure if you do this, go into the lodge and get a seat on the balcony at Stillwater.

Before you die list should start by driving in this road in springtime! Restaunts, great views, Golf courses, state beaches! Between Carmel and Monterrey don't feel amazed if you want to restart your whole life in this place

A Drive through this private community is best when you take time to stop and enjoy the scenery...not just a quick drive through....and then to go on to dinner at one of the Spanish Bay... As my son would say "Ahhh, this is the life!"

It's a must, no doubt. Loved the views of the ocean, the beaches, the wildlife and the incredible houses. This drive as it all. Then you can stop at the Lodge and have a drink and a snack and shop a bit. A perfect day trip!!

This is a drive past several golf courses and very expensive houses. From a scenic point of view, the hike in the Point Lobos State Natural Reserve was better. The only thing that the Seventeen Mile Drive has is the Lone Cypress.

Recently drove this while in Monterey, started at Route 1 , the first part was ok, mostly houses and trees. Much better when we got to the coast and had great beach views. However, if you plan to drive down to Big Sur, the 17 mile drive pales in comparison.

Worth every cent of the 10 Dollars you pay at the entry gates. Beautiful views from several vista points. Great Photo opportunities. Look out for small deer that are roaming the streets. Stop at Pebble Beach Golf Course (it's public) and walk up to the 18. Green behind the Hotel (it is signposted). Great views over the 18. fairway to... More
