BFFs Hit The Shops And Beaches In Carmel – Pups In Tow

By Stephen Daniels

Carmel, California is one of the most beautiful cities in the country, drawing visitors from all over to enjoy its beaches and luxurious atmosphere. A popular destination for all-girl’s weekend getaways, it is also named one of the top ten dog-friendly cities in the country.

Also called Carmel-by-the-Sea, the city was founded in 1902, developing a seaside village in the forest alongside the beach. The city streets were designed to curve around the evergreen trees, preserving the area’s natural beauty and attracting artists, poets, musicians, and professors from nearby Berkeley and Stanford.

The one-square-mile town is still just as beautiful and inspirational as it was more than one hundred years ago. Every year, hundreds of women tour the city with their girlfriends, exploring galleries featuring local artists and shopping where the locals (and their dogs) shop. With the influence of early celebrity residents such as Doris Day and Betty White, dogs are welcomed residents and encouraged visitors. The city’s yearly calendar showcases its four legged friends, and at the center of town, the Plaza provides continuous fresh drinking water in its famous “Fountain of Woof.” It has become tradition for restaurants and boutiques to offer treats for pooches, some leaving a bowl full just outside the front door.

Many of the city’s quaint and luxurious inns welcome guests and their pets. With nearly 30 to choose from, pet-friendly accommodations range from European styled inns in the heart of the city, to fully equipped seaside cottages. Nearby pristine white sand beaches provide both on-leash and off-leash areas for plenty of play. Carmel vacations are relaxing and indulgent, with an abundance of opportunities to taste gourmet foods and wines, and receive five star treatment at the area’s resort spas. Being able to bring along their best furry friend is like icing on the cake for many visitors.

Originally settled by an artistic community, historic Carmel homes are finely detailed storybook style cottages with colorful gardens and picturesque views. Property values have skyrocketed with the city’s popularity and its reputation for offering an equally quaint and luxurious resort style of living.

Today’s Carmel real estate also includes expansive personal retreat style homes, built by world-renowned architects and designers. These homes are situated near the beach, often offering both ocean and river views along with spectacular mountain backdrops. True to the area, the buildings are rich with custom details, including artesian wood moldings as well as reclaimed plank flooring, state-of-art kitchens, wine cellars, and most importantly, meticulously designed outdoor gardens.

With its thoughtful accommodations, and unmatched beauty and charm, the village of Carmel-by-the-Sea provides the perfect setting for a memorable getaway for girls and their pups.
