|I was recently in Niagara Falls (Canadian side) a few months ago. Clifton Hill (the tourist strip) is pretty dog-friendly, I walked Samson around there several times. Most of the shops are open to the street so if you want to stop and get some food for you or your dog, no problem. The area around the falls is dog-friendly too. I saw lots of people walking dogs in the area.
Don't do any business with the city of Denver (or nearby Aurora) - they are dog-killers. They are in open defiance of a federal mandate demanding they stand down at least from seizing and murdering pit bull service dogs (pet dogs, sadly, are still at the complete mercy of the city). There was a Holocaust survivor who compared the situation there for Pitbulls to Nazi Germany. It's pretty terrible. They are responsible for the warrantless seizure and destruction of over 1100 dogs (and likely more - the number I got this from was in an article published in 2009), and denial of due process to the owners of said dogs.
You cannot even safely drive through there without risking your dog's life. Take a 500 mile detour if that is what it takes, but don't do any business with them.
Sorry for the mini-rant/sermon but I figured since this was about travel and friendly places - it might also be prudent to say where, specifically, to avoid, given that Colorado seems to be a recommended place by several Dogsters.
