I try to always take this rode when we are in the area. This is scenery at its best. Don't hurry. 5 miles per hour is too fast.

We didn't pay Pebble Beach to drive through its properties, but the public portion is well worth the drive. Waves were crashing over the beach, gorgeous old houses line part of the drive. Definitely worth 20 minutes of your time.

This drive was very enjoyable and offered some of the best sights along the coast. Don't go without stopping a number of times at places like the Lone Cypress, Pebble Beach (walk down to see the 18th green), and Point Joe.

Beautiful drive with breath-taking beach. I especially like the Spanish Bay area, a scenic spot for picnic and relaxation. I do wish the drive is better marked because it was pretty confusing for something we were charged $10 for.

I love 17 Mile Drive and had the pleasure of renting a home just off of it. The road twist and turns and can easily confuse you. Don't be in a rush because deer are plentiful and can run out in front of you at any time. In fact, everybody in the car was always on deer watch. There is... More

A beautiful drive everyone in the area should do once. Drive by rich peoples homes and view their gate from the road.

My wife made me take this drive. It's good but not great. Worth $ 10? Going to lunch at Pebble Beach made it worth it.

It was a clear and windy day and the surf was amazing. The November sun was making the waves glisten and the drive was amazing.

We were fortunate as there wasn't a lot of traffic so parking at several stops was not a problem. Several stops were very interesting and picturesque. Some suggested stops like Spanish Beach was just a beach. They talked about white sand, well they have never been to Panama City, Florida. In our travels we haven't seen white beaches to beat...
