Didn't want to do it at first, but it ended up being one of my favorite parts of our CA trip. There were some really cool stops and views along the way, and my husband loved seeing the golf course!

What a disappointment this was. Save the money and take the pacific coast highway to Big Sir! 17 mile drive is a bunch of houses and a golf course with a tiny amount of scenery which pales into insignificance compared to the 'free' sights the...More

17 mile drive winds and weaves through many of the Monterey Peninsulas most notoriously famous spots. Cannot walk the 17 miles but a drive is recommended. It has plenty of spots to pull over and enjoy the Peninsula.

Very scenic and our daughter downloaded an app that gave us a general tour as we wound our way around the 17 miles. The advice I would give is make sure you stop and visit the golf shops, bars and restaurants of all the courses....More

What time would I start the 17 mile drive (is there only one entrance?) so that I'd arrive at the resort to have lunch in one of the restaurants around 1:00 p.m.? We plan to do it in a leisurely way.

There are restaurants but this isn't really a place to do that. My opinion is to stop somewhere before taking the drive. If you need you can always stop for a drink or lunch and use the restroom

Come up Highway one if you have the time and keep your eyes on the road. As regarding where to stay, depends on what you were doing. Monterey, downtown, hotel pacific Carmel, go online and see what suits you
