The summer is starting to wind down but it isn't too late to take one last vacation with your dog to enjoy the nice weather and relax before school starts or before you have to go back to work. We're fortunate to have so many dog friendly destinations in California and I have to admit we've been pretty lazy about making plans to get out of town this month. So while I'm planning our summer get away I'll give you a list of links to where I'd like to take my dogs on vacation!If you are planning on camping then Dog Trekker has a great list of resources for you to make reservations. I've heard that Mendocino is a great place to take your dog and has several off-leash beaches that you can romp around on! Plus you can relax in the towering redwood forests and who couldn't resist seeing the world's tallest tree?If you'd like to stay in wine country then the Carneros Inn is the place to stay! (only one dog per room though) We've eaten several times at the The Boon Fly Cafe (spicy bloody mary's!!) and your dog will love jumping into the canoe for a float down the Russian River!Want to try something really unique? You can ride Northstar's Big Springs Gondola in the summer on the weekends! I think this is going to by our weekend outing coming up! I've heard great things about Donner Lake and it has a few dog friendly beaches to take your dog to for a day of swimming in beautiful, clear, water.
