Thinking about taking a trip, but don’t want to leave your four-legged friend at home? There are plenty of dog-friendly destinations to create the perfect vacation that you and your furry BFF will be sure to enjoy! Here’s the perfect itinerary for a weekend with Fido in Ventura County Coast.
Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach is a dog-friendly hotel; pups of any size are welcome for an additional $75 fee. Be sure to call before booking to make sure a pet-friendly room is available.
Located steps away from the beach and just minutes from Ventura Pier and the downtown area, Crowne Plaza is the ideal spot. Bring your dog to the beach for a day of play; leashes are required, so add one to your packing list.

Dogs will enjoy a stroll down the Promenade, which has plenty of doggie bag stations, a grassy lawn area, and a water fountain and photo booth designed just for them!
Is it time for a pick-me-up? Take the trolley back toward your hotel to Downtown Ventura and stop by Palermo Coffee for delicious coffee, tea, gelato, pastries, chocolates and gourmet dog treats! Take a moment to relax and eat your treats outside on the dog-friendly patio.
Coffee not your thing? No problem. On the same street, you’ll find Anacapa Brewing Co., a craft brewery with great food and dog-friendly outdoor seating.
