  • What a nice area to explore, and the friendly gate staff provided a map and advice (stop #3 is best for sunset pics). Ok you have to pay $11 but that’s ok with me.  more »
  • After driving down the coast this past was lame. You have to pay money to enter the road, which is beautiful scenery and multi million dollar homes. Not really worth it to me!  more »
