Top 5 Dog-Friendly Spring Break Locations

Spring is here! As the weather starts to get warmer, it’s only natural to get antsy for a getaway. Since no vacation is complete without your furry best friend, here are five Fido-friendly spots to go for spring break.

Fort De Soto Park Paw Playground and Beach (Florida)

Florida is the ultimate spring break spot, but dogs aren’t welcome on all of its beaches. Fort De Soto Park Paw Playground is a fun exception that has a fenced-in area where dogs of all sizes can roam free and splash as they please.

Tribeca Dog Park (New York City)

The Big Apple is a popular tourist destination no matter when you go! If you’re touring around town and want to keep your canine cool, take her to the Tribeca Dog Park. This park features a fountain where dogs can frolic and beat the heat with new furry friends.

San Juan Islands (Washington)

If you’re dreaming of an island in the sun for spring break, the San Juan Islands in Washington are a perfect fit. The islands have beautiful beaches and great hiking trails, most of which are canine-accessible. The islands also have pet-friendly hotels, wineries and even a lavender farm that sometimes has special goodies for dogs.

Rosie’s Dog Beach (California)

Southern California is known for its awesome beaches, and Rosie’s Dog Beach in Long Beach is no exception. This four-acre section of coastline is designated just for pooches and is usually free of surfers and sunbathers. There are even several complimentary doggy-bag dispensers placed around the beach so no dog leaves any “buried treasure” behind.

Dog Cruise (Various locations)

If you and your furry friend want to have some floating fun this spring break, you might want to try a pet-friendly cruise. Several cruise lines have ships that are dog-friendly, so you never have to leave your furry friend at home. If the idea of a long ocean voyage makes you a little seasick, various water ports offer special short cruises, so you and your pup can take a quick jaunt off the mainland.

When done correctly, traveling with your canine companion can be stress-free and fun. Check out our tips for taking dogs on the road.
