One of the most scenic drives anywhere in the world, this stretch of highway runs between Pacific Grove and Carmel. You will see incredible beaches, six golf courses and more mansions than you can count. You will drive by several epicurean restaurants, all of which will refund the USD8 toll fee that you pay to drive this road. Pedestrians and cyclists can enter for free. The road snakes its way like a serpent, along the California coast and then through the Del Monte Forest. This drive is an absolute must for anyone visiting the Monterey Peninsula. Bring lots of film. See website for visitor details.

Drive an hour or two south down the PCH to get FREE views of some of the most spectacular scenery on Earth.
The 17 mile drive is a must for anyone staying more than a day in the area. The scenery is varied and beautiful, with many places to stop (especially good if you are travelling with kids!). If you feel splurgy you can have lunch at Pebble Beach too.
