Yippee! We celebrated the first day of summer on Monday, and you know what that means? It’s time to hit the road and travel. My Mom and Dad love to hike and do anything outdoors, so it’s a cinch for me and Mittens to tag along. But a lot of pets don’t have it that easy. Their vacation is spent in a boarding facility.
Now, don’t get me wrong, boarding is necessary because there are lots of places that we can’t go and that’s the best option. But if your family is planning a trip across town or across the country, you’ll be glad to know that there are plenty of hotels and motels that will make you feel at home.
Whether going away for a day trip or a week-long getaway, we’ve always found it helpful to plan our route using a couple of websites that identify pet-friendly hotels along the way. Saves a bunch of time and research because all the information is right there. Many of them even list attractions and events we might want to check out while we’re there.
You’d be surprised at the number of major chains, bed and breakfast spots and cottage rentals there are out there that welcome domestic animals–even the big dogs can find their place in the sun! With all of this information right at your fingertips, now, when your family plans a vacation…the WHOLE family can go.
