Whew! Summer’s over, the crowds are gone, fall weather is on the way—and with it (usually) crystal-clear skies and views to go with. There’s no better time for a trip con canine along California’s gorgeous Central Coast.

Carmel-by-the-Sea is nirvana for dogs and the people who love them, and that's as true when it comes to restaurants as it is with the town's glorious leash-free beach. Start your morning with a scone and a mocha latte savored at an outdoor table at Carmel Valley Roasting Company—or, should you care to greet the day with a scenic journey along 17-Mile Drive, pull off at the historic Lodge at Pebble Beach and treat yourself to breakfast (or lunch) at a dog-friendly table on the terrace of the Gallery Café, a favorite with early risers and, later in the day, those who relish a good old-fashioned milkshake. more »
