I enjoyed this drive very much. There are some beautiful beaches along the way, at least one with picnic tables. Just lovely all around. We went on a Saturday so it was pretty busy and we couldn't find parking at every stop, which was disappointing. It costs $10 to take this drive. I guess you are paying for the convenience of not having to figure out your own scenic route. But I enjoyed it, and found it overall relaxing.

it was interesting to see "how the other 1% lives" but the ride was a little expensive. There were some beautiful coastline sites and seeing Pebble Beach was neat but I'm not sure that I would want to do it a second time.

If you're a cyclist, definitely rent a bike from baybikes and ride around the 17 mile drive. It's a much nicer ride than rt1. One of the most scenic rides I've done.

It is sooooo beautiful! I spent half day there. There are a lots of seals there. I got lost there, the people live or work there are very friendly to help me.

This was so worth the $10 admission fee, the views are just amazing and breath taking, and getting to stop at Pebble Beach and see some of the holes and visit the pro shop was great as well. If coming to Monterey you MUST do this drive!
