Vacations are a great way to spend quality time with your family, but if you have pets, vacations might also make you feel guilty for leaving your furry family members behind. To remedy this, you can consider planning a pet-friendly vacation. You can take a road trip with your pet, or even take them on a flight, train or a ship. There are a large number of pet-friendly vacation spots around the U.S. Here are a few where you can enjoy a worry-free vacation with all your family members, including your pets.

Bend, Oregon

This town in central Oregon might be one of the best places for a pet-friendly vacation, as you will find that you can bring your dogs almost everywhere. Bend has a number of trails to explore. There are several off-leash areas that will allow your pets to roam around freely. North Fork Trail at the Deschutes National Forest is a favorite among serious hikers and it runs along douglas firs. There are also many other options for refreshing walks, dips in the river and canoeing in the town.

Fort Myers, Florida

Fort Myers is perfect if you're looking for a warm and sunny getaway. Bonita Beach Dog Park is a great place to have fun with your dog off-leash. Fort Myers also boasts several pet-friendly lakes, trails and gardens. You can have a bite at the many dog-friendly cafes and restaurants to end your day on a high.

Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania

Jim Thorpe is a must-visit for a vacation with your dogs as it is the home of the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway. The rail trip offers breathtaking views of the Poconos mountains which will become even more enjoyable when you have your whole family together.

South Lake Tahoe, California

South Lake Tahoe is another destination where you will find dog-friendly beaches. Kiva beach will not only offer you refreshing dips in the water but also give you a beautiful view of the mountains. You can enjoy craft beer at the pet-friendly Brewery of Lake Tahoe where you can also have your fill of classic American cuisine.

Sedona, Arizona

The iconic red rocks found in Sedona will make for a picturesque trip with your pets and family. Slide Rock State Park and Coconino National Forest are known to be pet favorites as they provide a lot of ground to explore. You can also opt for pet-friendly camping or backpacking trips to visit Indian ruin sites.

These are just a few of the many more pet-friendly destinations found across the U.S. Ensure that your itinerary takes your pet into account, including the places you'll be staying. Finding a place that will not force your pet to stay in a camper and will be comfortable for everyone is the option you should choose. A pet-friendly hotel will also be helpful if there are a few spots where you can't bring them along. Whether you're traveling by road or air, ensure that you're aware of the safety tips that will keep your pets comfortable during the trip.
