17 Mile Drive


17 Mile Drive
another stop on our great adventure

17-Mile Drive is a scenic road through Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach on the Monterey Peninsula in California, much of which hugs the Pacific coastline and passes famous golf courses and mansions. Part of it serves as the main road through the gated community of Pebble Beach. Inside this community, nonresidents have to pay a toll to use the road  Like the community, the majority of 17-Mile Drive is owned and operated by the Pebble Beach Corporation. The 17-Mile Drive is a 17-mile (27 km)-long scenic loop having five entrances, including one at California State Route 1 and one at Pacific Grove off Sunset Drive.

We had wanted to drive this years ago when 
we were stationed in Monterey,
 but as military couldn't afford the luxury. 
It was actually less than we remembered and we really enjoyed seeing the beautiful homes, golf course and of course
 the coast line.











Enjoy your week and strolling through other blogs.  
Thanks for visiting.  
Blessings, Debbie

When my daughter, their first grandchild was born, my parents drove and took pictures along this same road. Thanks for the memories.

I love your blues.

Happy Blue Monday, Debbie.

Oh my goodness that is spectacular scenery. The second shot with the winding road is so beautiful, I can just imagine the homes that must be there. Fantastic pictures Deb.

I've been to that area, but don't remember if I've done the drive or not ... maybe with my parents way back when. I especially love the "cliff hanger" image peeking through the pines to view the ocean. I love the Pacific Coast. Thanks for visiting Walk and Click Wednesday!!

Debbie, your photos of the 17 mile drive are gorgeous! I love the lighthouse! I am a big fan of lighthouses even though I live in the Midwest.
Thank you for visiting me and your nice comment.
