Very nice drive, variety of scenic places and things to see along the route bring your camera and hope for sun shine. Beware of older surfer dudes who like to strip naked near the parking lots

I can't tell you how many times we have taken the scenic marine route and it never gets old. Doesn't matter what type of weather we encounter, it is a very relaxing, quiet drive. Lots of water scenes, and pretty homes to take in.
