Dog-Friendly Cities - Honorable Mention

As a follow up to our annual "Top 10 Dog-Friendly Cities to Visit in North America" for 2004, announced in March, we would like to give honorable mention to the following cities and towns.

- Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: The Greater Philadelphia Tourism office recently began promoting their city and region as dog-friendly. In June 2004, they organized a "dog-friendly" Press Tour and arranged for members of the press to bring their dogs with them for the weekend and experience all kinds of dog-friendly places. In this newsletter issue, we are pleased to have an article from Lisa Kelley of Jersey Pets Magazine which tells about her experience on the Press Tour.

- Lincoln City, Oregon: The Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau sent us a press release about pet-friendly Lincoln City. They are promoting their town's 7 1/2 mile dog-friendly coastal beach, numerous hiking trails, pet-friendly lodging and local stores. Click here to look at their Pet Friendly Page.

- Washington, D.C.: The Washington DC Convention and Visitor's Bureau is in the process of promoting their city as pet-friendly.

And thanks to our readers for recommending the following cities:
- Telluride, Colorado: dog-friendly town
- Calgary, Alberta, Canada: numerous dog parks (many with water access)
