The Beautiful Point Lobos State Reserve

This beautiful coastal destination is just a quick drive from Monterey, California and one of my favorite locations for a day trip to Carmel by the Sea. Point Lobos is where I go to escape the desk and computer to enjoy some fresh air.

It’s not just enough for me to tell you what a glorious place Point Lobos State Reserve is, and that you should definitely plan on visiting it one day. This is why I wanted to offer a better explanation: 10 reasons you need to visit Point Lobos and have our photos to go with it!

Peter and I love national and state parks which is why we make an effort to to visit various locations at least once or twice a year. These preserved lands are filled with natural beauties that will capture your senses like nothing else. Yosemite is another one of our favorite locations. Our next trip is Zion National Park in Utah – it’s on my must-see list!

I hope you enjoy this post and let me know if you’ve ever visited this magical place.

Stay Stylish,

    Nice photos! Just FYI: Zion is very small (compared to Yosemite) and can get quite crowded. I was there in October, 2012 and had to be content with a quick drive-through with hardly any photo ops.
