Beautiful Monterey, California is a Dog Lover's Dream Destination

Monterey, California is justifiably proud of its culture, history and the beauty of its natural environment.  The city on the California coast could also brag about being one of the dog-friendliest towns in the United States. 

Dogs Welcome at these Monterey Attractions

Monterey’s temperate climate means that outdoor activities can be enjoyed year-round.  The following attractions welcome vacationers of the four-footed variety:

  • Monterey Bay Whale Watch.  Located at Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey, year-round excursions to watch whales and dolphins in Monterey Bay are the feature of this attraction.  Summer and fall trips start around April every year, during which time you can observe Humpback Whales and Blue Whales.  Starting in December and running through April is the time to spot Gray Whales.  At any time of year, one can see the great variety of marine animals and seabirds that inhabit Monterey Bay.  And well-behaved dogs on a leash are permitted. 
  •  Ventana Vinyards.  The “most award-winning vinyard in America” features the Old Stone House Tasting Room that dates back nearly a century.  Although dogs are not permitted indoors, leashed dogs are welcome on the patio and on the grounds.
  • Monterey Bay Coastal Trail.  Enjoy stunning scenery along the coastline on this 18-mile paved pedestrian and bike trail.  The trail goes through Monterey from the Aquarium to the Seaside City limits.  Well-behaved and leashed dogs are permitted on the trail. 
  • Monterey State Beach.   Dogs are allowed to accompany their families at this beautiful two-mile strech of beach in Monterey.  Dogs may run and splash and play, but they must remain leashed.

    Blogs like yours are really useful for people that are travelling with dogs. Having a website myself that specialises in dog friendly accommodation I always recommend that people do their research before they go on holiday with their pet to find out about the local area and seek out pet friendly attractions, restaurants and of course beaches. If you dont’ plan ahead you’re at risk of being tied to your accommodation because you don’t know where to go with your dog.
