It’s no secret that those looking to live the laid-back life head to Key West, the southernmost point in the continental U.S. — and dogs are no exception. In fact, Key West is so chill that you can take your dog to bars, restaurants and even the aquarium. You can also charter a boat for an afternoon on the water with your dog, or book them a paddle-board lesson. Plus, the city boasts many dog beaches.
For staying over, book Old Town Manor, a charming bed and breakfast nestled in Old Town Key West, mere steps from Duval Street’s live music, restaurants, bars and local shops. The hotel offers large dog beds, pick-up bags, and water and food bowls, and welcomes all breeds and sizes of dog.
Before you head home, don’t forget to head to Hemingway’s house to visit the descendents of his beloved polydactyl (many-toed) cats. Understandably, though, there are no dogs allowed at this particular attraction.
