Since 2002, the New York Times has regularly published quick snapshots of destinations in the U.S. and abroad entitled “36 Hours in [destination].” If you only had 36 hours to spend in Telluride, or Phuket, or Goa, what would you do? Where would you eat? The series sketches out brief visits, but the articles also work as the basis for planning a longer visit. I can’t tell you how many I have printed and stuffed into … Read more

This week’s Chloe’s Clicks starts with a link that knocked me out. It would never have crossed my mind to ask the Vatican Museum if Chloe could join us in a visit, but intrepid traveler Helen Fazio did just that — and was given permission to see the museum and Sistine Chapel with her Shih Tzu Raja. As Helen says, never be afraid to ask!
A world away from the Vatican, Christina Erb wrote a post for Outside.online about an exciting … Read more
This week’s first link makes me happy — it’s a standing ovation from Small and Chic in Cville for the very dog-friendly Hotel Palomar (a Kimpton hotel) in Atlanta, GA. Author Jeannine reveled in the doggie swag and pampering (as did Baxter the dog) and her pictures are fun.
Across the country, a Chandler, AZ restaurant is fighting to stay dog-friendly. Iguana Mack’s has allowed leashed dogs to keep their owners company on its patio for the past eight years — … Read more
Each week is a roll of the dice, of course, as far as interesting pet-friendly links go — this week is heavy on pet-friendly hotels, in the U.S. and abroad.
NileGuide posted a delicious article about eight luxury dog-friendly hotels around the world, from Crested Butte, Colorado to Rome, Italy. A new (to me) blog called Gotta Visit NYC: My New Yorkie Blog is about Yorkies Schmitty and Pudge and pet-friendly fun things to do in New York City — I … Read more
I have a huge number of dog travel links to tell you about this week, so I’ll plunge in and hope that order emerges from the chaos:
It’s warming up in Seattle, but if you’re still shivering in New York, NYDailyNews.com has an article you’ll want to see about indoor dog-friendly activities in the city, including indoor play groups, classes, and lounges — and even an indoor dog-friendly pool! Alternatively, you could travel across the world to Australia’s Sunshine Coast — … Read more
Here’s a dog travel blog that you might not find easily because it’s located at Blogspot. It’s called Travelling Pets, and it’s written by a Canadian couple living in Europe. They’ve been traveling in Europe and North America for the past four years with their Miniature Schnauzer, and have started posting about their experiences finding pet-friendly hotels and activities. So far, they’ve written posts about Leipzig and Burg (Germany), Naxos (Greece) and Venice. What they write is interesting, useful, and … Read more
One great resource is Bed & Breakfast Inns Online, which has over 5200 B&Bs in its database. On its home page, just below the map of the U.S., click on “Search Inns by Amenity” and select “Pets Welcome.” That will take you to a listing, by state, of bed & breakfast inns where pets are welcome. Follow the instructions at the top of the page to find out about each property’s policy.
Until recently, I thought that you had to find the names of some dog-friendly hotels in the location you want to visit, then laboriously look them up on TripAdvisor to see which of them you, the human, would like best. Foolish me. It turns out that TripAdvisor will tell you which of the hotels it lists are pet-friendly, if you coax it a little.
Here’s what you do: Go to TripAdvisor, type in your destination and select your dates (if you … Read more
