It's worth the ~$10 to take this very scenic coastal drive. And when I have guests in from out of town, this is one of the places that I recommend.
The 17 Mile Drive is a scenic road through Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach, much of which hugs the Pacific coastline and passes famous golf courses and mansions. Like the community, the majority of 17-Mile Drive is owned and operated by the Pebble Beach Corporation.
Travel along the road takes as long as you would like and for the most part, slower is better. There are numerous turnouts along the road to stop, take pictures, or get out and stroll along the ocean or among the trees. Visitors receive a map that points out some of the more scenic spots. In addition, a red-dashed line is marked in the center of the main road to guide visitors, and help prevent them from venturing into the adjacent neighborhood streets.
Chief among the scenic attractions is the Lone Cypress Tree, a salt pruned tree which is the official symbol of Pebble Beach and a frequent fixture of television broadcasts from this area. The road also provides access to Spyglass Hill, Cypress Point and Pebble Beach, and other golf courses (and associated services) around the community.
