2 New England Areas Named Among The Best For Dog-Friendly Vacations
Most would agree that your dog is part of the family. So then, shouldn’t dogs come along on your family trip? Daily Paws thinks so, and recently they named three New England locations among the best spots for dog-friendly vacations.
Daily Paws suggests that considering your itinerary and where you will stay is of the utmost importance when beginning to plan your trip. These points will help you think through what the circumstances will be like for your dog. Furthermore, will they enjoy it? Daily Paws describes how the founder of GoPetFriendly.com, Amy Burkert, went on a mission to illuminate the best ways to travel with your dog. This included finding the best spots in the country and the most comfortable way to get there. Burkert now lives in an RV with her husband and dog. Together, they constantly hit the road, document and share their pet-friendly expertise.
In a similar feature, PlanetWare states, “To see the look of contentment as they traverse hills with their tails wagging, run off-leash on a pristine beach with their ears flopping, or savor the last bits of ice cream at a roadside shop is worth every moment spent planning your dog-friendly vacation.”
While a dog spa and doggie daycare sounds nice, they can be expensive. In addition, having your dog in the family vacation photo allows for an unforgettable memory.
New England is fortunate to have many outdoor seasonal locations that are great for taking trips, and have dog-friendly accommodations. Here are the two New England areas featured by Daily Paws and Amy Burkert, that are dog-friendly destinations.
Bar Harbor, Maine
Specifically, the mountain ranges at Acadia National Park offer plenty of dog-friendly adventures and outdoor patios. This area was named in both Daily Paws and PlanetWare.
In fact, in St. Johnsbury, there is a 150-acre haven called Dog Mountain. Here, “Dogs are free to run, play, swim, and (best of all) meet other dogs,” they say.
