A publisher of dog travel guides has announced its 2013 list of the Top 200 Dog-Friendly Places in the United States. The list is broken down by state and includes at least one dog-friendly destination, activity or attraction in each. The site is called Dogfriendly and we’re really glad this site has been introduced to us. The publisher also included 18 hotels and inns on its list, some of which were chosen not just for allowing dogs, but for “amenities like doggy room service, dog activities, pet sitting and welcome baskets for dogs.” We listed 15 out of the 18 that we thought were the best. We hope you get a chance to stay at one of these!
Westward Look Resort: Tucson, Ariz. This resort comes highly recommended from one of Dog Friendly’s readers. They said it was the most pet-friendly resort around and they can’t say enough good things about it.
Cypress Inn: Carmel, Calif. There is a $25 per day pet charge but apparently it’s well worth it.
Stanford Inn by the Sea and Spa: Mendocino, Calif. Four Diamond small resort especially designed to accommodate travelers with pets.
