The scenic views are spectacular. Traffic can be a bit of a pain but if you stop often you won't miss much being the driver.

It depends on traffic, and how often you stop to take in the scenery or take photographs. It's 17 miles at 25 MPH.

Yes. There is an entrance in Carmel. When you exit on the northern side it links up to the main road going along the coast past Pacific Grove and on to Monterey.
