On the drive down from the Bay Area to the Central Coast, make it a point to treat Daisy and her people to a pause-that-refreshes in Carmel-by-the-Sea, an affluent seaside village boasting dozens of hotels, restaurants and shops that welcome four-legged visitors. Carmelís mile-long, leash-free beach is perhaps the most treasured resource on the West Coast for dog lovers. Carmel is on Highway 1 and just a hop away from Highway 101, either of which will get you to Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara.
