Dog-Friendly Monterey California
Monterey California is one of the most pet-friendly destinations there is. Coupled with nearby Carmel, this place is not to be beat as a dog-friendly vacation haven. Carmel provides the quaint village, one of the nation’s best dog-friendly beaches and Monterey provides long ocean beaches, walking trails, larger hotels and more selection in city amenities. Monterey, named for the Count of Monterrey, was first explored by Europeans in 1602. It served as the Spanish Colonial capital of California until the gold rush when the capital moved to San Francisco temporarily. It is primarily a fishing town. To see it’s Spanish heritage you can walk in the center of town at the Monterey State Historic Park.
