Believe it or not, Pebble Beach is more than just the tourist-thronged 17-Mile Drive and numerous golf courses. This is a living, breathing community with its own schools, stores, restaurants, post office, fire department, law enforcement, garbage collection, and on and on.

The community of Pebble Beach is actually an unincorporated area run by a corporation rather than by an elected government but it falls under a census designated place called Del Monte Forest. Del Monte Forest has an average house value of about $800,000, while the residents are 90% white, with average incomes of about $100,000 per year.

Pebble Beach traces its history back to 1919 when Samuel FB Morse established the Pebble Beach Golf Links and the Del Monte Hotel (now the Naval Postgraduate School). In the 1970s 20th Century Fox took ownership of Pebble Beach before selling to a Japanese businessman in 1990. In 1999 Clint Eastwood, Arnold Palmer, and Peter Ueberroth led a group of investors who purchased Pebble Beach, intending to further develop the area.
