Well worth the entry fee! Wonderful sites, well marked stops along the way and the chance to see some truly stunning scenery.
For years we drove the 17 mile drive each year at Christmas time. One cannot say enough about the majesty of the ocean as the waves roll in and the spray abounds. Staying at The Lodge or Spanish Bay makes one understand how so many people dream of this place year after year. Unlimited firewood ensures that a fire is... More
We drove along the length of the California Hwy 1 from San Francisco to San Diego and the 17-Mile drive was definitely one of the more scenic and serene places to visit. It is a photographer's dream! It is worth the $10 entry fee to get in. We spent about 2-3 hours there visiting places of interest listed on their... More
After reading some of the previous reviews, I wasn't expecting anything spectacular for the entrance fee of $10. All I have to say is, all of the negative reviews are so wrong!! Right when you go through the entrance gate, you are given a map with all of the 21 viewing points on the drive. Everything is super clearly marked,... More
Lots of spots to pull off and take pictures of the beautiful scenery. Viewing the iconic Pebble Beach golf course, watching the sunset with the bagpipe player at Spanish Bay golf course...took all day to soak in the beauty of the area.
17-mile drive is famous around the world. Why? Because it traverses a private enclave of homes and world-rated golf courses with sea views, beach walks, and fresh ocean air. It's private, did I mention that? So they charge to get on their roads - and the reason they charge is because the 4500 residents of Pebble Beach don't do much... More
I guess it was worth $9.75 to see some nice parts of the coast, to browse through the pro shop at Pebble Beach and to see the 18th hole there. However, I've seen more beautiful coasts in many other places for free.
This memory will stay with me through the rest of my life, and I am planning to come back in a year. One of the most beautiful places on Earth.
I agree it seemed a little pricey, but was worth it--I think. I can't imagine spending 4 hours like one review said...maybe 1 hour max..unless you are planning . Our favorite part was seeing the golf courses (we've seen on TV) and the sea lion island (or maybe it was seals)..the best part of all and alone worth the trip.... More
You start at the drive by paying the fee for this drive and then the map they give you guides you through the points. Each point has a name and some have beaches, some have woodlands...some points blend into each other so you can skip some. You can see the famous Cypress trees, beautiful beaches, and coastal vista points. Keep... More
