17 Mile Drive

You wouldn't know I live in Los Angeles with all my adventures to other parts of California these days. Here's yet another. Over spring break, my travel buddy and I did the 17 Mile Drive through Pebble Beach. Parts were stunning, parts were kind of boring, and all of it was very, very cold. I'm not sure if I would recommend it in March, maybe wait for balmier weather? Not that the bitter wind stopped anyone from golfing! The highlight was all of the the sea lions and seals. We actually got really close to a few seals swimming by the beach (see terrible picture above)!

Just a note: there's a $10 fee to access the road. (We did no research and did not know this.) But if you eat at any of the golf clubs (and by "any" I mean the 2 that are open to the public), they will take the $10 off of your lunch. We ate at the Inn & Links at Spanish Bay. There's 2 restaurants there, and luckily one is a not-totally-outrageously-priced sports bar. If that is not baller enough for you, feel free to continue to the last stop, the Lodge at Pebble Beach, instead.
