17-Mile Drive

17-Mile Drive is just what it sounds like: a scenic drive that’s 17 miles long. And, wow, what a beautiful ride!

There are 21 “points of interest” marked along the route. Several of them are on the coast where you can walk along the rocky shore. I know it sounds funny to get excited about water and rocks, but when the big waves come in and crash loudly against the rocks, it’s very dramatic!

This little island was full of sea lions. And we saw a few sea birds, too, Amanda!

The drive also takes you through a nature preserve full of pine and cypress trees. The symbol of Pebble Beach, the famous Lone Cypress tree, is more than 250 years old!

There are a few golf courses along the route as well. The Lodge at Pebble Beach has a pretty spectacular view of the 18th hole, right on the water. Maybe I should start taking lessons!
