The world-famous '''17-Mile Drive''' [http://www.pebblebeach.com/page.asp?id=1373] begins just a short distance away and runs through [[Pacific Grove]] and Pebble Beach. The road winds through miles of breathtaking coastal views, with turnouts along the way at the most historical and picturesque sites. Be sure to take a picture of the Lone Cypress tree! The $9.50 75 entrance fee includes a map, and the rights to gawk at the lavish homes within the '''Pebble Beach''' community's gates. Bicycles enter at no charge, motorcycles are not allowed.
Take a drive up to Carmel Valley Village and go wine tasting. About half an hour's lovely drive away, it is often warm and sunny even when Monterey is socked in with fog.
