When you have a free weekend and hope to have a great time, why not take a drive down to Monterey, California? The coastal region has a lot of sights for you to see and experience. In fact, here are a few sweet spots that you can visit and enjoy:
Point Lobos State Reserve
Located near Carmel, the Point Lobos State Reserve provides any nature lover a lot to see. Granite cliffs hanging above a turquoise sea are just one of the striking sights of the place. Caves and ponds are other examples. The marine life in the area is also a draw; sea lion, otters, and other animals make their home there.

Alaskan King Crabs are perhaps the most prized possessions of the sea, as they are known to make a sumptuous seafood dish, thanks to their succulent white meat. Like most good things, however, these creatures of the sea are also one of the most difficult to find along Monterey and in other places.
Alaskan Red King Crabs are usually found along shallow coastal waters that are less than 200 feet deep, provided that these have flat and sandy or muddy terrains on the ocean floor; the same holds true for their cousins, the Blue Crabs. Golden King Crabs, meanwhile, are more adventurous, as they tend to inhabit deeper waters, reaching as deep as 1,600 feet under water, yet they could also be found anywhere between 650 feet and 1,300 feet. They also prefer soft corals and boulders as their habitats.
