Big Sur drive Apr 05, 2011
This is one of the most beautiful drives in the US. The road hugs the coast as it goes south from Carmel to this small town of Big Sur. There are many points along the way that you can stop, walk down to the beach, take photographs etc. Highly recommended is the Pfeiffer Beach. Its a bit hard to find, but this is how I usually find it. When travelling south, around 2 miles or so from Big Sur River Inn, you see a few mail boxes on the right and an yellow sign. A road goes to the right with a sharp turn. This is Sycamore Canyon road. Drive down on the narrow road to reach the beach. Also recommended is the McWay falls.

Beautiful afternoon drive Jul 02, 2008
17 mile drive is a scenic loop near Monterey. If the weather is good, it is a pleasant way to spend the afternoon. There are lots of areas to pull out and enjoy the view during the drive, including a spot near the iconic tree of Pebble Beach. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the tree because I was too busy checking out the surf. Ghost Tree, a heavy, big wave spot (where a surfer died last year), is also along this drive, but there seem to be lots of points and breaks scattered around the coast that might be interesting to check out.

Costs a small fee ($10, I think), to drive into this gated area.

The 17 Mile drive and drive to the Big Sur were relaxing and beautiful. The views are amazing, and it is definately worth stopping along the way to take pictures and take in the scenery.
