I never travel without Wynston. He’s always by my side, and in the future I have plans to be traveling with him full time. For now I’m currently living in Arizona where I’m used to having constant access to dog-friendly businesses such as stores, restaurants, parks or popular tourist attractions. In your local area you may know which places welcome dogs and which don’t, but what about when you travel? I’ve learned first hand how to seek out dog-friendly establishments wherever I’m at. I won’t leave Wynston behind at a hotel, so I take him everywhere. Now I’ve come up with a helpful list of 6 ways to find dog-friendly places when you travel.
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!
It had been six years since I’d been to Las Vegas when I stepped foot into Mandalay Bay for the 2018 SuperZoo event. Vegas isn’t really my style, as I’m not into the night life or drinking. However, I was over-the-top excited to attend SuperZoo, as I’ve always wanted to go. While you’ll see a complete recap of SuperZoo, I decided to create a separate blog post about our stay at the dog-friendly Mandalay Bay. There is a lot to share and talk about!
I don’t travel without Wynston. Actually, I did once, and that was when I took my mom on a cruise as a surprise. But given the true choice, I will not travel without my boy. In fact, one of the reasons I like traveling so much is because Wynston is my travel buddy. Taking him on new adventures and creating memories together is what makes traveling fun for me. If you’re looking to visit a new place with your dog, you’ll obviously want to pick a location that welcomes dogs. Here are some tips on how to choose a dog-friendly vacation destination.
