Dogfriendly.com named Carmel the most dog-friendly village in the U.S. Hotels, restaurants, shopkeepers, and even random passersby go out of their way to welcome your canine friend(s). Dog at your feet, lovers of wine and food can still indulge their palates, too.
Make sure to pick up one of the Carmel Dog Calendars, which benefit the Monterey Bay SPCA. Pity the poor visitors who didn't bring their pooch along!
