Current charge is $7.75. That is good for the day. You can go in and out of
the drive as many times as you wish.I suggest entering from the Pacific
Grove gate and going down to Carmel that way. You can get a excellent lunch
at the Tap Room at Pebble Beach Golf Club. I was photographing there last
week, during and after a major storm. The waves were fabulous. Views are
definitely worth the 7.75. If you're looking for another place for dinner,
try Passion Fish in Pacific Grove. Not too expensive particularly the wine
list which has a lot of very good wines at rock bottom prices.
