Summer is the season of travel and you wouldn’t want to do it without your best friend by your side! Traveling with a pet can be difficult without many dog accommodating hotels and restaurants, and the last thing you want to do is leave Fido behind in an unfamiliar place for more than a couple hours. Your vacation should feel like a treat for the both of you, not a burden. That’s why we compiled a list of the most dog friendly spots in the U.S. for every type of vacation and for a paw-some summer!
San Diego, CA
Do you love a beach vacation? San Diego has several dog beaches that are just right for your playful pooch. You can catch a tan and admire the views while Fido plays fetch and makes some new friends. You can even go paddle boarding with your dog! Fur-tunately, San Diego is also home to many dog friendly restaurants that even have dog bakeries with special treats just for your pup. Bon A-pet-treat!
Sometimes all you need is a staycation or a day trip to your local city. Austin is the cultural hub of Texas, which is why it is perfect for you and your dog! There are dog friendly parks, restaurants, coffee shops and bars around almost every corner. You don’t have to miss a beat without your pup with live music everywhere. With 40+ dog friendly parks and activities, it is im-paws-ible to have a bad time.
Portland is the perfect city for any culture buffs out there. Portland offers cooler weather than the southwest, making it easier to enjoy long walks along the streets. Many places have dog friendly patios and the Portland scenery makes for great hikes without having to venture out of the city. Fill your days with locally roasted coffee, locally brewed beer and some house-made treats for your furry friend.
Acadia National Park, Maine
Not a city person? Love nature walks? Acadia National Park is one of the most dog friendly parks in the nation, with 120 miles of dog friendly trails. Located on the coast of Maine, Arcadia hosts plenty of beaches to splash around in. Dogs are welcomed in any public areas of the park with a few exceptions.
