Pebble Beach is famous for many reasons. Its discerning clientele adore the renowned Lodge at Pebble Beach. Golf aficionados travel here to play the oldest golf course in continuous operation west of the Mississippi, and fine-dining lovers have no shortage of options. One thing they can all agree upon, however, is the splendid views afforded on 17-Mile Drive, a scenic road that passes through Pebble Beach. As they hug the coastline, drivers can revel in remarkable vistas of pristine mansions, ritzy resorts and gorgeous natural landmarks, including the iconic Lone Cypress Tree.
