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

Nice leisurely drive through beautiful homes and stunning views of the ocean. Stop at Pebble Beach for lunch and they will credit the $ 10.25 you paid for the drive. We have been to Carmel once a year for the last 3 years and have...More

Loved the day. Loved the views. There were plenty of pullouts to stop and take pictures. Downloaded an app that helped us learn about the stops.

Well worth the entrance fee, we had an amazing afternoon and the highlight of the drive (for hubby) was the photo op and shopping at Pebble Beach Golf Course. Many beautiful pull-outs and scenery to die for. So glad we heard about this drive.

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