Planning a last-minute Spring break vacation with your furry-best-friend?
Here are 5 dog-friendly US states to visit with your pup this April.
While Vermont might not be the warmest spring getaway, it is certainly dog friendly. If you’re planning a weekend away to spend some quality time with your pooch, Vermont is our favorite option. With tons of great dog-friendly parks, trails, and restaurants, Vermont is an awesome choice if you don’t want to worry about where you’re allowed to bring your dog. Our must-see spots with your pup include Dog Mountain, an attraction with 150 acres of land dedicated to dogs, Switch Back Brewing, a great spot for humans to relax with a pint and for their dogs to interact with friends, and The Gondola Sky Ride in Stowe, to explore the gorgeous Vermont views with your four-legged friend by your side.
In keeping with the chilly theme… Colorado is probably not the place you’re going to get your tan on in April, but it’s the perfect time of year to explore with your pup. Colorado offers dog-friendly experiences like The Peterson Air and Space Museum and The Manitou Cliff Dwellings Museum.
Colorado is also home to one of the first indoor restaurants to allow dogs and their owners to eat side by side, Pub Dog Colorado, and offers dog-friendly food trucks at local events like Doggie Treats Truck!
3. New Mexico
New Mexico brings a bit warmer weather for you and your furry-best-friend to explore. We recommend visiting Albuquerque since your options are endless with hotels and vacation rentals like The Painted Lady Bed & Brew, or a private Downtown Oasis equipped with a backyard and dog beds.
Albuquerque is full of pet-friendly restaurants like The Flying Star and Geckos Bar and unique dog parks with agility tracks, rivers and beaches. And if you do decide to visit, don’t miss the opportunity to take your pooch on a trolley ride around the area with ABQ Trolley Company.
If you and Fido love the beach, Florida is paw-fect for you two. In almost every city in Florida, you’ll find a dog-friendly beach to relax and play fetch on. We recommend Juniper Dog Beach in Juniper or Lee County Dog Beach in Fort Meyers.
After a long day at the beach, book your stay at LightHouse Resort to relax and rest up for your day of outdoor adventures with your furry best friend tomorrow.
California also offers an array of fantastic dog-friendly beaches like San Onofre State Beach or Huntington Dog Beach. But CA goes way beyond dog-friendly beaches. Find unique activities to do with your dogs all over Cali like painting classes, dog photoshoots by the water, and dog-friendly cruises.
