Past POIs - 17-mile drive [Monterey Bay, California]

One of the big tourist attractions while in Monterey Bay, California is the 17-mile drive which is a private area of Monterey Bay that cost us $10.25 in 2017. There are plenty of sights and wildlife when we were there.

17-mile drive
When you enter, with the cost of admission, you are told the path to follow (which is follow the red lines on the road) and off you go. The points of interest in the map are clearly mapped and there is plenty to see including but not limited to Pebble Beach and the Lone Cypress.

17-mile drive - look at all the wildlife!
All the marked points have clear areas for park. You'll notice that there are some areas that don't really have much to see, but may be worth it to get out and stretch a bit.

17-mile drive - do you see the seal?
Note, you can re-coup your admission cost if you shop or dine while inside the area. We started from the south side which is probably the proper starting point since it started at point #1.
