I'd like to go on vacation with my dog this year and spend some time relaxing outdoors in a scenic, canine-friendly area. Any suggestions?
From the Editors of The Dog Daily
A few years ago, DogFriendly online released a list of their top 10 dog-friendly resort areas to visit in the United States. From first to last, their list is Portland, Maine; Carmel/Monterey, Calif.; Ashville/Blue Ridge, N.C.; Key West, Florida; Charlottesville, Va.; Black Hills, S.D.; Lake Tahoe, Nev.; Cape May, N.J.; Grand Canyon, Ariz.; and Hocking Hills, Ohio.
Each of these places has its own charm and outdoor activity offerings. A walk along the Grand Canyon rim with your dog, for example, is something that the two of you will never forget. On the other hand, it's hard to beat the rugged Monterey coastline, with beachside trails and numerous dog-friendly restaurants. You can hear the surf roll in while you and your pet dig into breakfast. Consider your and your dog's activity preferences, however, along with your budget and the length of your stay before deciding on your vacation destination.
