The Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch (Avon, Colorado)
If you want a breathtaking getaway in the mountains and have the means to do so, you can't beat this luxurious resort. Your pup will enjoy doggy room-service with yummy (and dog-safe) desserts as well as doggy massages and baths.
Red Mountain Resort (Ivins, Utah)
Here, you'll enjoy the beautiful sights of the Utah mountains as well as luxurious accommodations for you and your pup. Pups receive treats and will enjoy the 55-acre grounds. A "Hike for Hounds" activity is the perfect way to get exercise with your dog on this vacation.
Hyatt Regency Scottsdale (Scottsdale, Arizona)
This resort is a true escape, and hilariously doggy-themed. The hotel's 4paws program brings out Uno, the canine ambassador, to show you the grounds. Your dog gets spoiled just as much as you do, with a custom-made bed and a special canine menu.
Huntington Beach, California
Huntington Beach is one of the most dog-friendly cities on the West Coast. You can pamper your pup at the Doggie Spa at Seacliff Village, or head to the Huntington Dog Beach (that's right, a beach just for dogs and their humans!) for a day of fun. There are plenty of dog-friendly rentals and hotels in the area.
Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
This beach town is the perfect destination for you and your pup. They have a dog-friendly ferry that travels between Delaware and New Jersey and there are tons of dog-friendly hotels and rental near the shore. If you love movies, bring your dog along to the "Cinema by the Surf" events.
Cranwell Resort (Lenox, Massachusetts)
If you're up for a luxurious resort, head to this one in the Berkshires of New England. They're pet-friendly, so you can bring your pup along for the pampering. There are also plenty of nature trails and open spaces at this resort, so it's perfect for your dog.
Sanibel Island, Florida
This friendly little island has everything you'd want in a vacation. There's a calming, small-island vibe to Sanibel and plenty of dog-friendly beaches with shallow waters that are perfect for wading. There are also local pet shops you can visit, like Island Paws, for all of your dog-themed souvenirs.
Austin is one of the most popular tourist cities in Texas, and for a reason! It's lively, full of music and art, and very dog-friendly. There are dog-friendly beaches as well as a park called Red Bud Isle, that allows for off-leash roaming. There's yummy local bakeries, like the Groovy Dog Bakery, as well as the annual Mardi Gras Dog Parade, held in February.
So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and hit the road with your pup in tow.
