We love traveling, but we hate leaving our four-legged friends at home. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of the best pet-friendly travel destinations in the U.S. and what to do there!
Beartooth Highway, Montana
Known as the most beautiful road in America, the 68-mile Beartooth Highway stands at 10,947 feet above sea level along the border of Montana and Wyoming, connecting the towns of Red Lodge and Cooke City. This dog-friendly road trip destination (open Memorial Day through mid-October) has many nearby pet-friendly hotels.
Santa Barbara, California
Santa Barbara is a picturesque pet-friendly city where you can enjoy the beach, trails, and fine dining. Take your pup for walks along the coast and downtown, stopping at pet-friendly places like the Funk Zone and Stearns Wharf.
If you are headed to Telluride seeking adventure, bring your doggo. The famous resort destination has a gondola that allows pets on leashes to travel between Telluride and Mountain Village (look for the paw print sticker on the window). AllTrails also lists 26 pet-friendly trails in the area that you can explore with your pup.
When visiting the Midwest with your dog, Chicago is a must-visit destination. Bring your four-legged friend to Belmont Harbor Dog Beach, Montrose Dog Beach, Chicago Lakefront Trail, or Navy Pier. There are also many pet-friendly bars and restaurants.
Newport, Rhode Island
Newport, Rhode Island, is perfect for a relaxing getaway with your fur baby. Take your pup sightseeing at King Park Beach, Fort Adams State Park, Weetamoo Woods, Newport Harbor Walk, and Sakonnet Greenway Trail. There are also great pet-friendly dining and lodging options.
There’s no place like Galveston. Take your pup to the historic downtown and East End Historic District, the waterfront, and the West End. There are also plenty of breweries and restaurants where your dog can accompany you.
