Carmel Plaza


Carmel-by-the-Sea,  California
If pups had a say in the family vacation, we bet they'd raise a paw for Carmel, where four-legged pedestrians can romp on the leash-free beach, and social canines can gather at the Fountain of Woof, a dogs-only drinking fountain and hangout in the courtyard of the town's open-air shopping mall, Carmel Plaza. Most shops have an open-door policy for pets, and provide plenty to keep them satisfied, from free treats to the snazzy striped pupwear, organic biscuits, and bedazzled collars at Diggidy Dog, a 2,000-square-foot pet supercenter across the street. Fancy Fidos can sip from a sterling silver water bowl outside Tiffany & Co., giving you a moment to step inside and savor the sparkle.
