Over the years we have travelled this route a few times and is very certainly worth the $10.25 fee if this is your first visit to the area. Can get quite busy at peak times and parking at the various Stopping Points can be difficult....More

Unless you enjoy seeing beautiful homes, golf courses and like shopping go to one of the beautiful state beaches or parks instead. The views are more spectacular and the beaches feel so much more rugged and natural. The seal rock and cypress tree were interesting...More

A lovely way to spend a couple of hours. A leisurely drive with many stop off points with beautiful views. Stunning coastline, properties and golf courses. Definitely worth seeing if you are in the area.

We drove the 17 mile stretch twice. Loved the view. Go early in the morning. It gets very busy. Beautiful homes!!! When you stop you can seals playing off in the water. I believe we saw the most at bird rock.

A bit foggy when we started but by noon the sun was out and the views were amazing. Stopped at Pebble Beach golf course for some photo ops. Checked out the gift shop and picked up some souvenirs.

This 17 mile drive is stunning and easy to navigate. All I can say is you do not want to miss the views of the ocean. Stop and enjoy the Pebble Beach Golf course and then follow this to the Big Sur area to see...More

Even if you don’t play golf this drive takes in some of the most magnificent views of the coast. For those that do this must be one of the finest tours around - Cyprus Point followed by a beer in the club house at Pebble...More

The 17-Mile Drive was great, the route has lots of interesting stops and beautiful scenery. When we were there there weren't many visitors so the drive was smooth and enjoyable.

I grew up watching Bing Crosby at Pebble Beach, playing with the professionals and duffer celebrities. The scenery was so beautiful on TV, I always wanted to see it for myself. I don’t play golf anymore, but driving around the courses and seeing the views...More
