This week’s links about dog-friendly destinations start with petswelcome.com‘s list of three California getaways — one at Lake Tahoe, one on the coast in Cambria (near San Simeon), and the third in Julian, in the Cuyamaca mountains east of San Diego. Across the country, Jessica Marati wrote a post for Gadling about New York City’s best food trucks — food trucks are a terrific resource for visitors with dogs. Heading north, the Montecristo Travels team described a wonderful visit to … Read more

It’s a very miscellaneous week on Chloe’s Clicks. One link, though, hearkens back to a past Chloe’s Clicks — remember that I told you about musician Danny Kean, who tours North America (and elsewhere) with a piano and a dog named Mo? How surprised I was to learn that they came to my neighborhood in Seattle — I totally missed them, but they were here.
There’s a bit of continuity, too, in a clutch of links about New York City — … Read more
I have two weeks’ worth of dog travel links to tell you about, so sit down, shut up and hang on, as the bumper sticker says. This time of year, it’s all about the winter getaways, starting with a petswelcome.com post about dog-friendly hotels in Miami, Vermont and Monterey, and another post from the same folks about dog-friendly things to do in beautiful Santa Barbara. Kim Swidler, from timesunion.com, wrote a quick note about the Kiawah Island Golf Resort (located just south … Read more
I only have a handful (heck, less than a handful) of dog travel links for you this week — here we go, and, for a few more moments, Happy Halloween!
Petswelcome.com offers three great suggestions for dog-friendly weekend trips from New York City, including inns in the Hamptons and the Finger Lakes, and a resort in the Catskills. The Take Paws team spent a night in NYC, at Ink48 (a Kimpton hotel in Midtown Manhattan). Located in a former printing house, … Read more
This week’s Chloe’s Clicks starts with a time-sensitive link: The second-ever Surf City Surf Dog competition is scheduled for next weekend at California’s Huntington Beach. Even if you don’t plan to attend, check out the photo from last year’s competition!
Speaking of Orange County, the O.C. Register reports that a Lake Forest restaurateur with an unusual idea — a café that not only allows dogs to join diners at an outdoor patio but also provides a doggy play area for them … Read more
This picture, sent to me last week by New York friends, says it all: The new branch of Le Pain Quotidien, which just opened in the Mineral Springs Pavilion near Central Park’s Sheep Meadow, has a dog-friendly patio. Tears of joy, people!
Sure, it’s a chain — but it’s a darned good chain, not only making praiseworthy efforts to use organic and local ingredients, and build and operate in a responsibly green way, … Read more
Writing a blog post on a World Cup weekend is like a tree falling in a forest, but I’m a faithful girl, and there are clicks to tell you about. The most tempting (and that’s saying something — it’s been a good week for dog-friendly links!) is a post from The Inner Workings of a College Graduate about a glorious week the author and her family spent at a dog-friendly beach rental on beautiful North Captiva Island. Great pictures, and … Read more
Last August I told you that small dogs in carriers are allowed onboard AirTrain Newark, which takes you from Newark Airport to New York’s Penn Station or Trenton (via a connection with NJ Transit) for much less than the cost of a taxi.
Another inexpensive alternative for passengers arriving at Newark is the Newark Liberty Airport Express, a bus that leaves from Terminals A, B and C and takes you to three stops in the city: Port Authority Bus Terminal, Bryant Park … Read more
Last year I posted a favorable review of a book for RVers traveling with dogs called Woodall’s Camping and RVing with Dogs, so when the Woodall’s site announced that the authors now have a website that allows users to find dog-friendly campgrounds on a map of the U.S., I paid attention. Click on the state you’re interested in for details — and notice that when you do, the left-hand column changes to include links to some useful information, collected under … Read more
This week’s dog travel links take you all around the world and into a heated debate. Let’s do the fun part first:
I discovered a new (to me) blog this week, called Maggie in Venice. It focuses on a Bearded Collie named Maggie, spending several months in Venice with her American owners. Maggie’s adorable, as you’ll see in the heaps of photos the Imbodens have posted, and Venice is, you know, Venice. You’re going to love reading about the dog-friendly side … Read more
