So glad we did this iconic trip and had lunch on 18th hole at Pebble Beach. Lovely! The whole drive is a delight. Your entry fee is refunded if you eat/ shop at any of the golf courses along the way.

This is a must for every visit. The drive is pleasant and the views on a sunny day are breathtaking. Parking is strategically located and ample. A day on the beach wouldn't be a bad idea too. Entrance fee is US$10.25 if I remember.

17 miles drive is a must. It never disappoints, many vistas, nice views on a gorgeous scenery (both the ocean/beaches and cedar trees).

Yes, I believe the closest place to rent bikes is at Lovers Point Park (Adventures by the Sea). Also, bikes can ride the road for free!
