I really enjoyed this drive. We had a map that described some of the attractions along the way such as the Lone Cypress Tree. And there are plaques at different stops that describe more of what you're seeing. The views were breathtaking. My husband and I drove some and stopped along the way to get out and take in the views or play on the rocks/beach. I wish we had thought to make a little picnic. As you get closer to the Pebble Beach Golf Course the mansions along the water became part of the attraction:)

We did not do the entire loop. We started at the Pacific Grove gate and at the Carmel gate we decided to head into downtown Carmel and get lunch.
