  • See hounds hang 10 in San Diego, California

    2012-03-14

    The beach goes to the dogs near San Diego every early summer for a great cause and a wild event. Travellers who wish to journey to sunny California this year in June should not miss the annual Lowes Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition. Owners and their canine companions will take to the waves and battle it out for glory.

    According to the tournament's official website, this all-day event attracts hundreds of spectators and their furry friends to the beach to watch canines get on surfboards and ride the waves. Some head out all on their own, while others join their owners on longboards to compete. There are several categories in which the dogs battle it out on the ocean, including small dogs, larger dogs and even celebrity canines. Those who earn top places may take home special pet vacations or become a superstar dog themselves while being invited to a VIP dinner.

    The entire extravaganza is sponsored by the Lowes Loves Pets program, which encourages canine-friendly travel accommodations and activities. Most of the proceeds that come from registration fees will go toward supporting local public schools in need through the DonorsChoose.com website.

    This fun event is a must-see for anyone who loves animals and enjoys meeting others who share the same enthusiasm. It could be a great way to spend time with one's furry friends, or even bring along a pet on vacation to this great locale. Either way, the Lowes Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition can be a fantastic introduction to the quirky and thrilling atmosphere on many of the city's best beaches.

    San Diego is full of things to see and do which may delight travelers on a great girl's getaway. According to Lonely Planet, visitors who want a break from the sunshine can spend some time in the Natural History Museum, which houses great exhibits like dinosaur skeletons and displays about earthquakes.

    If travelers have shopping on their minds, making plans for Crystal Pier may be their best bet. This area is perfect for people-watching and perusing an array of eclectic shops, whether guests are looking for vintage finds in the district's boutiques or a cold cocktail at one of the area's fine bars and restaurants.
