Published by Anne B (January 18, 2020)

The winter can be a great time to take a vacation and the US has so many great destinations.  We’ve taken a look at some of the top 5 US destinations to visit with your dog and give you a taste of the type of activities you can enjoy together. So why not install your Travall Guard and head out on a road trip with your furry buddy on board to one of the following:

Portland, Oregon

Visit Portland Saturday Market. Have breakfast at The Tin Shed. Visit Next Adventure, an outdoor equipment store that allows you to shop with your 4-legged adventure buddy. Take a walk around Forest Park – it’s got 70 miles of trails so you can both really get a great workout. Try some delicious food at the food pods in NE and SE Portland – you can sit down for a meal with your dog and be warmed by the fire pits and outdoor heating to keep you cosy in the winter months.

Huntington Beach, California

Go for a run at Huntington Dog Beach. Attend dog surf school – the Good Kharma Surf School offers classes for dogs and humans alike. Visit Huntington Beach Best Friend Dog Park

Nantucket, Massachusetts

Have lunch at Center Street Bistro or Henry’s Sandwich Shop, where you and your dog can dine together. Most of the beaches are dog friendly providing your dog is on a leash – take your pick between Miacomet Beach and Jetties Beach to start off your beach time fun.

Wilmington, North Carolina

Take a tour of the Haunted Cotton Exchange, a walking guide to the rich history in Wilmington. Take a ferry to Bald Head Island and your dog travels free. Visit the Museum of the Bizarre with your well-behaved, leashed dog to see the eclectic items on display.

Austin, Texas

Go shopping at The Domain, where you can indulge in retail therapy with the company of your dog. Sign up for a Doga class at Austin Doga – that’s dog yoga to give you and your pooch that moment of zen. Go on a hike at the Barton Creek Greenbelt Preserve. 

If you’ve got suggestions for other US destinations to visit with your dog, why not let us know? We’d love to hear more suggestions and the activities to do when you’re there.
