“It's the history”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

People that gripe about paying ten bucks for this are mising the point. It's not just about the views..it's the whole Pebble Beach 1950's rich and famous thing. Yes, you can get equally beautiful views elsewhere, but there's a legend to this drive. I ould not recommend doing it on a crowded weekend in summer, but a weekday in November was perfect!

“17 Mile Drive”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Spectacularly scenic drive-Pebble Beach golf course is amongst the stops in here--do yourself a favor-at dusk go to Spanish Bay and witness the bag piper as he plays and strolls about the golf course to reappear in front of you playing as the sun sets into the Pacific-he does this every night-people sit out on the deck with food/wine as this is taking place--take it in!!!!!

“Loved It”
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”
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?”
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.
