“Very Scenic Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We have walked the beach on 17 Mile Drive several times, and always enjoyed it. We had less time this trip, and decided to walk all of Scenic Drive. Loved seeing all the beautiful and unusual house on one side of the street, and the Pacific Ocean on the other side.

“Pretty homes along the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Funny, we always walk down Ocean Avenue to visit the beach when we're in Carmel. This is our first time walking along Scenic Road. It was a nice residential walk along the beach. You walk along a paved side walk. When we went (Columbus holiday weekend), it was a bit busy. However, this didn't take away from us enjoying ourselves.

“Better than 17 mile Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

What a lovely walk or drive with the crashing ocean on one side and beautiful homes of all kinds from cozy cottages to McMansions on the other. Don't miss the Frank LLoyd Wright house along the way. Great photo ops at every step.

“Breathtaking view...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We rode our bikes on this magnificent road. It is nothing short of spectacular. With the beautiful winding road along the California coast, driving speed is very slow (and believe me, that is part of the charm). We loved it so much, we did this trail 5 times over our 5 day trip. 4 times on a bicycle and once by car. There are so many beautiful scenes, many photo opportunities here with funky architecture to the left (its a one way street) and the Beautiful Pacific coastline to the right... It is breathtaking beautiful! A must do when visiting Carmel by the sea!
