Yes, it does cost$9.50 to drive 17 Mile Drive but it is worth every penny. I've always
Iked entering through the Carmel Gate almost hidden at the end of San Antonio Ave. at the bottom of Ocean Avenue. If you keep to the left and head towards the Lodge at Pebble Beach you'll pass by the most spectacular properties in the area. Make sure to stop by the Lodge not only to explore the stores (and grab a souvenir golf aShirt) but also to walk down to the 18th green to watch golfers finish their rounds (and a spectacular view of the course) as well as the first tee box for those heading out. Continue along 17 Mile Drive and make sure to visit all of the "must sees" including the Lone Cypress. A bonus for visiting in late March/April is the chance to see seals giving birth on some of the small beaches.
