Explore the most beautiful roads in North America with The Quail

In addition to hosting the world’s most prestigious classic car event, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the Monterey Peninsula on California’s Central Coast also boasts some of the world’s most spectacular driving roads. Thanks to Quail Lodge, you can now experience them from behind the wheel…

If you’re anything like us, you’ll have been glued to series one of Big Little Lies, the American dark comedic drama set in the tranquil coastal town of Monterey in California. From the famous Bixby Creek Bridge to the legendary 17 Mile Drive, which forms a large part of the Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance route in August, the scenic stretch of coastline features heavily in the show and is nothing short of breathtaking. 

Now, Quail Lodge & Golf Club in nearby Carmel – which also plays host to The Quail, A Motorsport Gathering, one of Monterey Car Week’s most prominent events – is launching The Quail Moto Rally Experience, a series of road rallies which allow enthusiasts to climb behind the wheel of beautiful classic or modern sports cars and experience the most spectacular roads California has to offer. There are currently four to choose from: The Scenic Rally, which heads north to west and encompasses wine tasting at two vineyards; Coastal Gourmet Rally, which encompasses a three-course lunch at the exquisite Post Ranch Inn; Car Lovers Rally, which includes a stop at Canepa Motorsports Museum; and Executive’s Rally, which traces the back roads through Salinas Valley and Carmel Valley. 

Each is priced between 280 and 380USD per person and lasts between two and four hours. If you’re interested in emulating the ‘Monterey Five’ and haring around Big Sur in a drop-top classic with the sea breeze in your hair, then visit the Quail Lodge & Golf Club’s website.
