Cruising The 17-Mile Drive in California

My husband is fond of long out-of-town drives. In fact, our very first date was a trip to Tagaytay, a city an hour away from Manila in the Philippines because I knew he secretly wanted more time with me (LOL!).

The 17 Mile Drive is known worldwide to be one of the most romantic and beautiful places to go for a long winding coastal drive…and we wouldn’t pass on the chance to do this scenic tour with the kids!

Take note that long easy drives = sleepy kids. So, expect your kids to snooze and miss out on some photo opportunities! If we had more time and prepared earlier, it would have been nice to bring some food and picnic in one of the points of interests along the way.
