It is a beautiful drive. Though called 17 miles drive, the actual track along the coast is not 17 miles long. Some popular spots could be difficult to find parking, but it is all worth it.

I was not overly impressed by the views on this drive, especially considering there is a cost to drive this road. I knew there would be great coastal views, and there were, but the views at Point Lobos State Park, just south of Carmel are...More
