|About these ratings|
Coursing through the Pebble Beach-Pacific Grove area, this stretch of roadway offers breathtaking views of the Pacific and multi-million-dollar houses. While you can snap plenty of photos from your own vehicle, we recommend you park at several places along the road, like the Lone Cypress lookout point, to pull over and secure a few shots. Also, don't pass up a visit to the Pebble Beach Golf Links, which has several shops and restaurants.
One Yelp.com user admits, "This was a perfectly nice scenic drive but I didn't think it was anything spectacular ... We saw much nicer scenery for free a few miles south in Point Lobos."
Regardless of the number of passengers, each car must pay $9.50 (cash only) at any of the five entry gates. The 17-Mile Drive is a short drive north of Carmel-by-the-Sea. For more information, check out the Pebble Beach Resorts' website, which lists some good information on the 17-Mile Drive.
