“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!

“When did they build all these houses?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Beautiful scenery, beyond the doubt. But, there were a surprising number of enormous houses along the drive. It was disappointing to see guide wires helping to steady The Lone Cypress. Seeing and listening to the sea lions made up for that.

“Spectacular views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We rode this on our bikes. There are some long downhills. The road is otherwise okay, traffic is a little heavy in certain areas and there was one really angry driver.

“Fabulous 17 Mile Drive!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

The best attraction in Carmel is the famous 17 mile drive, it is well worth seeing. And the infamous lone pine is the most photographed tree in the world. If you are touring Carmel you must do the drive!!!
