Husband, myself and our one (Weimaraner - mid-size) dog are *finally* taking some time off work: the last week of June. Extended family is camping in June Lake the weekend of the 20th and we want to plan around that - staying with them Saturday and Sunday, then continuing on our own adventures for the next week. We'll be driving from Utah County and need to be back by Sunday the 29th.
I'd love suggestions for us! We don't mind a few-hours drive but don't want to be in the car the entire time. Looking at surrounding areas from Lake Tahoe, Napa Valley, Big Sur, Fresno. Prefer places where the dog isn't restricted to a leash or crate 100% of the time (i.e. most National Parks are out). Husband is the camping lover and I wouldn't mind some wine-tasting/arts/tourist and city-type stuff, so a healthy combo of both is really ideal. ;-) We both love music with all our souls - a jazz, folk, or indie night would be amazing. Maybe mostly hiking and trails, but a night or two at a dog-friendly hotel in a lively town?
Thanks in advance for any tips!
