Rugged, wild beauty. Not the California you would expect. Stunning scenery and atmosphere

It is a very beautiful place. I would return to stay longer in Monterey and play a round of golf at Pebble Beach Link Course.

We just got back from our trip to California and took the 17 mile drive. I'm glad we did. It's $9.50 a car and this must be cash. I thought that was a little expensive, but only going to be here once. You can stop along the way and take pictures of the beach and golf course. A red dashed line in the street lets you know you are going the right way. We ended our drive with a visit to the Pro Shop. It's is very expensive. They have a Pebble Beach shop at the Cannery. It had clothing 50% off, I wish I would have known that.

Got ripped off--$9.50 for a plain, average drive. Hardly recommend.

It was slightly raining when we took this drive, but that didn't detract from it at all. Late afternoon when the light was starting to turn gold was a fantastic time to go. The toll was $9.50, which is an absolute bargain for what you'll get to see. If t's too muddy or wet out to go hiking, I would recommend this drive to anyone.
