All I can say is that if you've never driven this stretch of road before, do yourself a favor and ride on it at least once in your life time. 17-mile drive is probably one of the most scenic drives in all of the US. It contains on several stops throughout the drive with places like Bird Rock, the Lone Cyprus along with several premier golf courses and links like Pebble Beach, Spy Glass Hill, Inn at Spanish Bay. There is a slight fee per car on entrance (which there are 2 main, one in Pacific Grove and the other in Carmel). Overall it is a very relaxing drive and a great place for sightseers and scrap bookers. It always seems like there is always a better photo op around the next bend. One of my favorite things to do is stop at Pebble Beach and visit the store and the real estate broker and just day dream about one day owning one of the houses. Oh yah, you know that you own a great house when it has its own name. And all of the houses there have their own names.A great way to finish off the drive is to end it in Carmel-by-the-Sea and roam around the shops and restaurants there. And Carmel Beach is also one of my favorites N. Cali beaches.
