The Tour d’Elegance Puts Pebble Beach On Public Roads

If you aren’t ponying up the dough or finding a loophole or a fence hole to get on the golf course, the best way to take in the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is by climbing around the edges of Route 1 in coastal Carmel to see the cars–most of them anyway—in motion. The route that includes sections of 17 Mile Drive on the peninsula, cliffside highways further south, and a few gorge-gapping bridges in between is known as the Tour d’Elegance, and it’s one of the best events in a week that’s stacked with overlapping places to be from morning ’til whenever. It’s inevitable that you’ll have to forgo one good time for another at some point during Car Week, but as far as Thursday mornings go it’s hard to beat hanging out with no distracting cell phone service while you listen to the lazy cadence of the surf get interrupted by Italian V12s, sitting as you are watching priceless cars share the road with far more normal traffic (do you agree that seeing these cars “in the wild” is more intriguing than finding a row of them parked next to each other without any real-world context?).
