The drive is a nice slow wind through the neighborhoods and golf courses that sit above Carmel. You'll marvel at some of the beautiful homes, verdant courses and ocean views. It's a slow drive - will take probably 40 minutes or more - especially if you stop to take pics!

A must do & see when Carmel/Monterey. Lone cypress is very cool. Houses are spectacular. Golf courses along the drive are cool. You can almost hear Jim Nance.

The drive now costs $10.50 for the car, but if on the Monterey peninsula, you should make this trip.

Fog moving in and out made some of the scenery spectacular, but it also hamper d the view out further in the ocean. All the scenic stops show-off the rugged coast and at a few of the coves the water is so clear you could watch seals swimming along the bottom. Current cost is $10.25 and if you can avoid... More

We drove this one afternoon when we were "road tripping" in California. I would definately do it again. Some of the views are spectacular, and the scenery is beautiful.

We did Seventeen Mile Drive about 20 years ago and now again. In 20 years nothing's changed except more tourist. It is a pretty drive with a lot of pull over spots.

This is a way to view a great amount of beautiful landscape in a short amount of time through your car's window. For those who can't or would rather not get out of their car, it is a viable option. You pay a fee for the opportunity and receive a limited experience. But, for those of us with limited mobility,... More
