I just posted this on the Carmel forum, but since this forum has more people, I'll post it here too:
Even though I'm relatively close, I've never been to 17-mile Drive. Yes - I've seen all of the reviews saying it's a waste of money. But I have some relatives coming over from Japan that I'm taking around the Monterey area. Originally, I was planning on taking them to Point Lobos as a last stop of the day, but I've reconsidered and think that they will probably appreciate 17-mile drive more.
Besides Cypress Pt, are there any other recommended stops along 17-mile drive? How long should I plan for?
