Santa Cruz Pet Friendly Hotel Guide

Have you caught yourself wondering, “What is Santa Cruz known for?” Well, there aren’t too many places on the planet where you can hike through thick, lush forests in the morning, spend the afternoon on a wind-swept sandy beach, and enjoy dinner at a charming downtown patio café. Santa Cruz offers all of that, and more. Located on California’s Monterey Bay, the Original Surf City is a pet owner’s delight with outdoor fun waiting behind every giant redwood, crisp wave, and unique storefront window. When you stay in Santa Cruz, dog-friendly hotels like the Chaminade Resort & Spa are the way to go. You and Salvador Dogi will be close to all the wonders of the Northern California coast and you’ll have a comfortable retreat to return to after each adventure.

What can I do in Santa Cruz with my pet?

You certainly won’t be lacking things that you and your pet can do while you are in Santa Cruz. Aside from exploring the woodlands high above the Pacific, here are some of our favorite activities for you and your furry friend:

  • University Terrace Dog Run: This is a great off-leash area for your pooch to burn off some steam and interact with other California canines.
  • Beaches: Santa Cruz has not one, but three dog-friendly beaches. Your tail-wagging wave warrior will have to remain on-leash, though that shouldn’t limit the fun. Seabright Beach is the most popular, followed closely by Twin Lakes State Beach and Its Beach. Surf’s up!
  • Venture Quest: Rent a kayak and you and your barking buddy can tool around the wharf for a different perspective of the seaside Shangri La.
  • Bed and Biscuits Groomingdales: A great way to end your time in Northern California’s natural gem is with a trip to this pet grooming service. Pamper your pup before heading back home.

Can I go camping with my pet near the Santa Cruz redwoods?

Santa Cruz pet-friendly hotels may be a comfortable temporary home while visiting the Monterey coast. But to truly experience the natural wonder of the massive redwoods surrounding the area, you’ll want to spend a night or two camping under the stars. If you and your canine camping companion are looking for a great place, you should investigate the following sites:

  • Big Basin Redwoods State Park: California’s oldest state park has 80 miles of trails, secluded waterfalls, and the tallest plants on the planet—the costal redwood.
  • New Brighton State Beach: The shade of the iconic conifers gives way to the sun and sand of the beach, offering you and your pet the best of both worlds.
  • Seacliff State Beach: The redwoods loom overhead on this sandy stretch of shoreline. Famous for its driftwood, Seacliff has the makings of an epic game of fetch.

Let Travelocity help you book your Golden State getaway. You’ll find a large selection of pet-friendly hotels in Santa Cruz like the Continental Inn where you and your four-legged friend can stay. You might just save enough money to buy your furry pal a custom wetsuit so he can hang ten…or twenty, as it were.
