Kelly doesn’t rank the destinations in The Dog Lover’s Guide to Travel, but, “If I did,” she says, “Carmel-by-the-Sea would earn Top Dog status. I don’t say that just because I live two hours away. I truly am impressed with the rank dogs have in this charming town. The entire beach is off leash and dogs of all sizes — from teacups to Danes — are seen throughout town, in boutiques, art galleries and wine tasting rooms. Thirty of the city’s 53 restaurants welcome four-legged diners. This canine crazy culture was cultivated by the historical Cypress Inn, co-owned by animal activist Doris Day and where Yappy Hour takes place daily. All you have to do is watch my video.”
