“Breathtaking!”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

We rented bikes and rode down 17 mile drive. Amazing scenery and an easy ride. Very few hills. I was surprised to see how turquoise the water was this time of year. Lots of places to pull over and picnic.

17-mile drive is not only a scenic excursion along the Monterey coast, it's a chance to get a peek at how the 1% live!

“Fabulous views.”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

We parked and walked a while, then went back to the car, and parked further up and walked some more. You could spend hours here. The views are spectacular. Enjoyed seeing the houses as well.

“even on a cloudy day it's worth the drive”
Reviewed November 16, 2011

Even on a cloudy day, it was well worth the drive. We incorporated lunch at Pebble Beach golf course and visiting Carmel into our exploration of 17 mile drive. It is a wonderful, beautiful area of the country to explore!
