Bidam and I travel in style.
Man, our moms are lucky to have us! 😋
We decided to explore Sacramento for one night. For those of you who follow our adventures you know that Kimpton is a popular dog friendly hotel brand that we visited before. Each hotel is different, but always locally stylish, which you know, is a requirement for us, the staff is friendly, and the food is yummy, so the humans tell us.
Unfortunately for us, the weekend we decided to go was one of the hottest so far, reaching over 100 degrees in Sacramento. 😩To deal with the heat our humans decided to start the day really early, hitting the road a little after 7:30am.
Eventually we made our way to the hotel to check in and take a break.
Bidam's mom found a doggie day care that has a pool and made a reservation for our own private pool party, which is pretty funny because Bidam doesn't like getting into deep water.
It's nothing fancy, but Animal Den Pet Resort & Spa was exactly what I needed to cool down. It's $25 for 30 minutes and they provide all the toys (that we didn't use) drinking water, and there was a shaded sitting area for the humans. Actually, the shaded area was our favorite spot, too. Since the pool isn't that deep this could be a good place for those just learning to swim, too. Animal Den Pet Resort & Spa is a regular doggy day care so you'll hear other dogs barking but overall, nothing to really complain about. Except the water, if you don't like to swim. Ha!
Next we headed to a local pet store Incredible Pets. This was completely unexpected; it's a hidden gem located in a strip mall next to a nail salon. When we went they were really well stocked. They have a wide range of food and treats that are cheaper than San Francisco prices, for the same product! I got some yummy salmon skin and cod skin.
Downtown Sacramento is going through a revitalization with a newly built stadium, Golden 1 Center, and retail space. Actually, the area reminded us of Pacific City in Huntington Beach; there were a few signs for some of the same restaurants and shops.
