Orange County is a destination that rolls out the welcome wagon to the entire family, not just the two-legged specimens. OC is home to endless energizing activities for you and your pooch, from romping in the water at one of California's best dog beaches in Huntington Beach
, to soaking up some culture by exploring a dog-friendly art museum
Between dog-friendly restaurants, hotels and activities; endless sunshine and the locals’ sunny disposition, you and your pup are sure to have a bright time in The OC.

• Huntington Beach Dog Beach, Orange County. This salty-dog paradise encompasses a 1.5-mile section of a 3.5-mile-long beach that seems plucked straight out of a surfer movie (no wonder Huntington Beach is nicknamed Surf City USA). You’ll find yourself humming a Beach Boys tune as you and your pup immerse yourselves in surf culture. more »
