“What a treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

WOW, that is all I can say about those views. We were so lucky we got a beautiful day. It was sunny, breezy and the drive was great. An unexpected plus for me was seeing so many deer. We stopped at several places along the way and saw whales and dolphin. It was just so wonderful.

“Still Lovely”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

We had done this drive many times before but it had been several years. Still beautiful but you can also get beautiful views driving along coast by Pacific Grove.

“Stunning Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

So you are required to pay a fee when you are entering - however, you can defer this cost by presenting your receipt when dining. The views are wonderful. I also saw some deer along the way. Until some idiot tourists came along and scared it off. The views of the homes and golf courses with the ocean in the background is wonderful.

“Misty and somewhat pointless”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

It was quite misty when we visited Seventeen Mile Drive and as a result the only thing we could see were the expensive houses of those that can afford to live there. In all, a bit of a pointless visit.
