New York, NY Announces its 2nd Annual Top 10 Dog-Friendly Cities To Visit in North America- 2004

Click Here for a Printable Version has compiled its new list of the Best Top 10 Dog-Friendly Cities to Visit in North America - 2004. To determine a city's or resort area's dog-friendliness we searched for places that not only permit, but actually welcome both you and your best friend. Our ratings are based on the quality and number of dog-friendly places that a traveler would use such lodging, attractions, outdoor restaurants, hikes, beaches and stores. Our list is also intended for local residents who may not need a hotel but who can also enjoy a variety of nearby dog-friendly activities. As part of our criteria for determining dog-friendliness, we focus on places that allow all well-behaved dogs, regardless of size or breed. This year we have also decided to give high rankings for cities that allow both small and large dogs on their public transportation such as buses, subways and street cars. We deem this an important factor because aside from an easier way to travel, it helps to cut down on pollution. Another difference this year is that we now include Canada when researching our top ten list. Both the United States and Canada are home to many desirable pet-friendly establishments. 

Below is our Top 10 List. Click on any link below for detailed dog-friendly listings in each city.
