We all love to travel with our friends – even our four-legged ones. While many vacation spots boast of pet-friendly hotels or dog-friendly beaches, few destinations are as canine-centric as Florida’s Historic Coast. Where else can you take your dog along for a guided tour of a museum, on a scenic ocean cruise, or a historic walking tour created just for pups and their people?
St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra and The Beaches have several pet friendly accommodations ranging in price points and variety from hotels, to bed and breakfast inns and beach resorts. Some even provide welcome baskets for your canine guests.
Your pet will find refreshing water bowls outside shops in St. Augustine’s historic district.In addition, more than 20 restaurants with outdoor dining options welcome pets.
In many designated areas of the beach, you can enjoy a morning walk with your leashed pet. And don’t forget dog parks. Florida’s Historic Coast has five designated dog or dog-friendly parks.
