Lake Nasworthy is a little gem tucked away on the outskirts of sunny San Angelo, TX. It’s not a “tourist attraction” by any means, but San Angelo is hardly a popular vacation destination as it is. The city could be considered a “military town,” with Goodfellow Air Force Base at the center. Having a population of only 100,000 people, San Angelo boasts local beauty and culture…and not much else. However if you find yourself in the area, I personally think Lake Nasworthy is a great spot to visit. It’s dog-friendly, offers camping areas, and is a nice spot for fishing. At the lake you will find Goodfellow AFC Recreation Camp where you can rent boats, kayaks and cabins. If you’re looking for something to do, you can make a fun day trip out of it with your pup!
I can’t believe out of all the traveling I’ve done with Wynston, especially in the last year, that I haven’t written a post specifically on tips for staying at a hotel with your dog. At one point I was completely new to dog-friendly hotel stays, but now I’m most certainly an expert. So let’s dive right in. These tips are sure to make your first hotel stay with your dog (or upcoming stays) more fun and less stressful!
I consider myself to be a seasoned traveler, as I’ve been enjoying the road and skies since before I can remember. Now that I’m older I have my own way of doing things, and I’ve created successful routines for traveling via car and airplane with my dog. I’m an expert at traveling alone with Wynston, and in the next couple of years I’d like to be living on the road full time. In the meantime, let’s discuss road tripping alone with your pup. Here are helpful tips for surviving a solo road trip with your dog.
This summer I’ve been especially struggling with the Arizona heat. Maybe it’s because I’m older or maybe it’s because I want to be more active outdoors. Whatever the case is, the brutal Arizona summer has been keeping me indoors and causing major cabin fever. As of this last week I hadn’t traveled anywhere with Wynston for a month and a half so I felt the dire need to get out of the house. Since my mom has a home in Payson, AZ (northern Arizona) I figured it’d be the perfect getaway for a few days. We could escape the heat, get out of the house and potentially explore. I wanted to take Wynston on a new mountainous adventure because I’ve been craving time in the great outdoors, and turns out we had a lot more fun than we anticipated!
Summer tends to be the season of travel. Kids are off from school, many corporate industries slow down and the weather is nice in a majority of the country. As all of my vacations include Wynston, it’s becoming mainstream for families to include their dogs in travel plans. Summertime offers potential weather risks that may not exist other times of the year, such as overheating, monsoons or terrible humidity. Consider these summertime travel tips for pet parents if you’re hitting the road or skies with your pup this season.
