Celebrities have always loved Pebble Beach. President Theodore Roosevelt and author Ernest Hemingway were early visitors to the luxurious Hotel Del Monte, and stars have been escaping here ever since.
From Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower, Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush, to Beatles Ringo Starr and George Harrison, to Winston Churchill, Charlie Chaplin and Bing Crosby’s raucous Hollywood friends, Pebble Beach has been a special retreat for celebrities.
That tradition continues today, thanks to marquee events like the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. But celebrities also enjoy a relaxing vacation here, just like you. Here are the 10 most-liked Instagram posts of celebrities in Pebble Beach:

8. KELLY SLATER – 25.3K

7. JAKE OWEN – 26.7K LIKES
Wow. One of the coolest photos ever. Standing on the 18th green next to the ocean at Pebble Beach. Dad and I watched as my buddy and partner @jordanspieth tapped his putt on for the WIN. The REAL winner is my Dad. 3 years ago I wanted him to carry my golf bag for Pebble Beach…I look forward to every year. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with throat cancer and ended up with a feeding tube and massive amounts of radiation. He lost 35lbs and watched the tournament with my mom from his @mayoclinic bed in the height of Minnesota winter. I shed a tear this morning when I found this photo thanks to @weinsteinphotobooks. My Dad is BACK! Cancer free and healthy. Carrying my golf bag! Fulfilling a lifelong dream. This is what life is all about. I love you Dad and couldn’t be more proud of you.
It’s special when celebrities like country music star Jake Owen can make lifelong memories at Pebble Beach.
