Salem, Massachusetts is Historic, Educational, and FUN! Salem has it's fun, hokey side but there are also many beautiful, historic places to see and things to do. Not surprising given the Salem Witch Trial history, they celebrate Halloween all month long in October! Salem is very close to the harbor, so it also has a rich maritime history. It's also a dog friendly town with lots of outdoor dog friendly dining options!
New York City is surprisingly dog friendly! Central Park is an especially wonderful destination to take your dog. Afterwards, sit with your dog in one of the many sidewalk cafes for some people watching! Here's Icy sitting in the middle of the Imagine Circle in Strawberry Fields, a memorial to the late, great John Lennon of The Beatles.
Dog friendly New Mexico is called the "Land of Enchantment" because of it's stunning beauty and rich history. Santa Fe lies in the Northern part of New Mexico. It's not only stunningly beautiful, but culturally and artistically rich and diverse as well. We discovered just how dog friendly Santa Fe is when we took a trip there with Icy and Phoebe.
Sedona, Arizona is one of those truly magical places! The panoramic vista's will take your breath away. There are loads of dog friendly hiking trails, and plenty of dog friendly outdoor cafes and restaurants.

If you're traveling with your dog by airplane, here are some helpful tips on flying with pets.
They call Arkansas THE NATURAL STATE for a reason. The natural beauty throughout the state is simply gorgeous! Arkansas happens to also be a very dog friendly destination. Eureka Springs is in the Northern part of Arkansas, nestled deep in the Ozark Mountains. It's a quaint little town surrounded by so much natural beauty.
Another beautiful little town in Arkansas is Hot Springs. It's the opposite of Eureka Springs in that it's in the Southern part of Arkansas and the natural springs down there are Hot springs instead of the Cold springs found up North in Eureka Springs. This little town is not only surrounded by natural beauty but it has a very interesting history - HINT: Gangsters and Baseball took center stage in this town's past!
If you're looking for a posh vacation with your pooch, check out The Hamptons, Long Island New York. The beaches are spectacular but there are a lot of restrictions. And bring your credit card, The Hamptons doesn't come cheap!
Just East of The Hamptons is Montauk, Long Island New York. Montauk beaches are more dog friendly than those in The Hamptons. Montauk is literally the very end of Eastern Long Island, which is why people say "Montauk. The End". The Historic Montauk Lighthouse is at the very tip of Montauk Point and is the oldest active lighthouse in America. The lighthouse is definitely worth seeing!
If you're a history buff, Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia - The Revolutionary City is a great vacation! We were so excited to learn that it is a dog friendly destination. There are some dog friendly accommodations in The Revolutionary City and there were a couple of dog friendly outdoor places to eat as well. Visiting Colonial Williamsburg is like stepping back in time!
We love going to fun, interesting places with our dogs. Roswell, New Mexico definitely qualifies as one of the more interesting places we've been to! We paid a visit to the town most associated with UFO’s and alien sitings. Yes, I do mean little green men …. or should I say little green women?.... let’s just say little green beings and leave it at that. Check out my post on our super fun trip to the funky little town of Roswell, New Mexico.
