Spring Break is almost here (though you wouldn’t know it in some parts of the country. Sorry, Northeastern US.), and that means fun for the whole family. If the whole family includes the four-legged members, you’re probably looking for a destination where your dog will be welcome, too. We’ve gathered four of the best dog-friendly Spring Break destinations for you!
Telluride is one of the most dog-friendly cities in the country. Per capita, dogs outnumber people in the sunny Colorado town, and it’s packed with dog-friendly activities. There are tons of options for hiking and swimming, plenty of dog-friendly hotels and restaurants and dogs are even welcome on some public transportation options.
San Francisco, California
If your dog is a city dog, this is the place for you. The famous W Hotel welcomes pets and even offers services like dog walking, grooming, and onsite pet stores. Your pet will get a special gift basket upon check-in and each room includes a pet bed, food and water bowls and mat, a special door sign for housekeeping and even a treat at turn-down. Beyond that, the city itself is very dog-friendly, with several parks and pet-friendly restaurants and stores.
If the West coast isn’t an option, head to Miami and stay at the National Doral Miami. Their dog package includes many pet-friendly perks – snacks, chew toys, dog tags, pet blankets (that you can have embroidered with your pet’s name), dog beds and more. Miami also offers many trails, parks, and beaches where your pup will be welcome to get in on the fun.
If the beach party scene isn’t your speed, head up to Essex, Vermont with your pooch in tow. The Northeastern US is known for its Fall colors, but it’s just as breathtaking in the Spring when all those trees are in bloom. The Essex Resort & Spa is the best place to stay to pamper your dog. Known for its culinary-infused hospitality, has a pet-friendly “R & Arf” package that includes an interactive doggy treat cooking class for owners. Add that to hiking and swimming options galore, and you’ve got a good, tired pup on your hands at the end of the day.
Wherever your Spring Break travels take you, it pays to keep your dog covered with a pet insurance policy. Injuries and illnesses can strike anywhere, and the cost of emergency pet medical services can reach exorbitant levels in many parts of the country.
