So, I have no clue why one should have to pay to enjoy this drive. It’s not super expensive, only $10.25, but that’s the point. It’s on Pebble Beach, surrounded by multi-million dollar homes and one of the most famous golf courses in the world....More

This is the BEST drive down the coast. It's not my first drive nor my last roadtrip on Seventeen. It's the very best $11 toll fee you will ever pay. If the weather is good, bring some clothes for the beaches. Love this drive and...More

Typically an entry charge of $10.25 in cash from the entery gates, we made an entry from the Carmel gate. The device has about 18 stop over points and one gets a route map at the entery gate. There are beautiful spots where one can...More

This is one of the most beautiful drives on the planet! Stopping at the "Lone Cypress" is the piece de resistance! The price is now $10.25 per vehicle and so worth it! Don't miss!

A lovely drive even if its raining lightly. Where do the folks get the money? We even saw a house for sale for $25 Million. Really? Shoreline is breathtaking. A must see.

Winding roads, dramatic scenery, steep cliffs, and even steeper drop offs and you have the seventeen mile drive. An iconic destination from Pebble Beach and Pacific Grove. Stop to see the many walrus' along the way or to watch the fog roll in over the...More

Like most, I’ve heard about the 17 Mile Drive my whole life and finally drove it. While it’s nice, it costs $10.25 to get in and basically you feel like you’ve paid to drive through a very fancy gated golf community. The ocean scenery can...More

Have travelled this road a few times over the years but still enjoy doing it. Some great views of the pacific but if you look the other way there are some great looking homes to view. Plenty of places to pull over and park up...More

It depends on traffic, and how often you stop to take in the scenery or take photographs. It's 17 miles at 25 MPH.
