Dog-Friendly State Travel Guides (Coming Soon)

My readers have been asking me to write about more dog-friendly activities in states I have never traveled to. In order to meet their requests, I will be publishing dog-friendly state guides. Travel guides offer a comprehensive look at a given destination and, with my upcoming guides, an audience ready for an adventure.

I am offering a unique opportunity to those dog-friendly establishments (hotels, restaurants, stores, parks, events etc.) to be included in one or more of my upcoming guides. Contact me today for details.

Dog-Friendly Travel Campaigns and Opportunities

Dexter and I are always looking for fun, dog-friendly adventures. If you have a dog-friendly establishment you would like us to visit, please contact me for details. If your dog-friendly establishment is not local (Toledo, OH) or located in one of our already planned dog-friendly trips, travel expenses will need to be covered.

Dog-friendly vacations are the best when your dog can participate in tourist attractions. During my stay in the dog-friendly city of St. Augustine, Dexter enjoyed a lot of dog-friendly attractions, restaurants, and tours. I knew Dexter had to visit the world-famous Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park.

As a dog-mom, I’m very proactive in Dexter’s natural-health-care routine, and when I heard dogs are welcome to drink out of the Fountain of Youth, I knew it was a must see.

The Fountain of Youth St. Augustine Dog-Friendly Attractions

The Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park is more than just the magical Fountain. It’s actually much more. Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park is the original site of the Nation’s Oldest City and dates back to 1513. Colonial America started right in the park before the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock.

The Fountain of Youth is the oldest attraction in Florida and is home to 15 waterfront acres full of history. Some of the dog-friendly attractions include the Discovery Globe, blacksmith exhibit, Timucuan burials and village, Nombre de Dios Mision, 1565 Menendez settlement, excavations, Spanish lookout, cannon firing, Founders’ Observation Riverwalk and of course, the Fountain in the Spring House. Not to mention the nearly 30 unforgettable Indian peafowl (peacocks) roaming around.

Birds at The Fountain of Youth

 

The exhibits were both indoors and outdoors, which made this dog-friendly attraction a win in our book. The day we visited, it was incredibly hot and humid, so being able to take Dexter inside to enjoy the indoor activities was a real treat and a great way to cool down.

Navigator’s Planetarium

Dexter and I enjoyed not only a cool-down in the planetarium, but we had a great educational experience. We learned how the early Spanish and Portuguese explorers of the 1400s navigated the world using the stars. It was really fascinating to learn how Juan Ponce de Leon used the night sky for navigation and landed at the Fountain of Youth. And the best part? The planetarium transformed to show us how the sky looked way back then!

Discovery Globe

This was another great dog-friendly indoor attraction. The Discovery Globe illustrated the routes of the early Spanish and Portuguese explorers to and from the New World. The impressive globe is 30 feet high and glows with such brilliance it was awe-inspiring. The show demonstrated the extent of the lands of La Florida and the settlements and cities that they founded.

The Spring House-Fountain of Youth

The highlight of my dog-friendly trip to St. Augustine was definitely having Dexter drink out of Juan Ponce de Leon’s Spring of Eternal Hope. The Fountain is the original spring that was recorded in a seventeenth century Spanish land grant. With signed guest books as far back as 1868. The spring comes directly from the Floridan aquifer, which lies below ground under most of North Florida. The Fountain water contains over 30 minerals.

Drinking from the Fountain of Youth

Is the Fountain of Youth Real?

That’s for you to decide. Dexter certainly seemed to enjoy lapping up the water and even went for seconds. It’s pretty unusual for Dexter to want to drink during day trips, so I think there may be something to the mythical legend.

We spent a few hours visiting the different pet-friendly attractions, exhibits, and gift shop. If we had more time, we could have easily spent the entire day. Located inside the park is Smoked Southern BBQ which cooks only fresh and local sustainable food. If you are traveling with your dog in Florida, The Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park is a must-see.

Dexter the Dog loves to take dog-friendly boat rides. During our trip to St. Augustine, Florida, we ran out of time and did not have a chance to board the dog-friendly Schooner Freedom nor St. Augustine Scenic Cruise, but we did enjoy the Red Train Tour!

The dog-friendly Red Train Tour, operated by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! since 1953, takes guests on an extensive and educational tour through St. Augustine. The Red Train tour is fully narrated by the conductor. Our conductor was so knowledgeable and fun to listen to and banter with.

Great way to see St. Augustine, FL

Dexter and other well-behaved dogs are welcome on the train tour. Dexter enjoyed sitting on the train bench, smelling the air with the wind blowing through his ears. When he wasn’t looking at the Nation’s Oldest City’s architecture, he was snoozing in my lap.

St. Augustine Red Train Tour

When traveling to new destinations, sometimes it can be overwhelming to choose just what to do and see. This was particularly true in our case, when we were only staying for two days. One of the best parts of taking the Red Train Tour, is that as a new visitor, I was able to see the best parts of historic St. Augustine that I may never have known about. It also gave me the opportunity to pinpoint spots and attractions I want to spend more time at next time I visit St. Augustine. Yes, there needs to be a next time. 🙂

Loved the historic views

St. Augustine is full of old historic buildings such as the Oldest House, Old Jail, Spanish Memorial Hospital, Fort Menendez, Flagler College, various churches, and so much more. By riding on Ripley’s sightseeing train tour, visitors are able to get on and off at any of their 20 convenient stops. One of the best parts of your admission ticket, is that it is valid for the THREE days, and a new train comes by each stop every 15-20 minutes. Free car parking and on-demand shuttle service to and from area hotels is included.

When you are traveling to St. Augustine with your dog and are looking for a great way to see and get around “Nation’s Oldest City,” I definitely recommend The Red Train Tour. It’s an easy and enjoyable way to tour St. Augustine with your dog and not worry about parking or getting lost. If you and your canine companion are more adventurous, check out their Ghost Tour for a paranormal experience.

Before you go, make sure you check out St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra & The Beaches Visitors & Convention Bureau for guides, maps, things to do, and much more.

Dog-friendly vacations are the best when you are visiting a pet-friendly city like St. Augustine, Florida. During our dog-friendly vacation to Florida, the family stayed two nights in St Augustine, Florida. The Nation’s Oldest City has definitely been on my radar for many years.

Dog-Friendly St. Augustine Video

St. Augustine was founded in 1565 and offers not only great beaches, outdoor activities, dining, shopping, and historic attractions, but St. Augustine is very pet-friendly! Dexter the Dog and I love to travel and visit dog-friendly cities.

We enjoyed strolling through St. Augustine’s historic district, where he was welcome in most stores. I’m not sure if all stores are dog-friendly, but each one I asked, said yes. 🙂 There were a lot of dog-friendly outdoor restaurants; it was hard to choose. We decided to eat at Taberna del Caballo. The service, setting, and food were great! A little taste of Spain in each bite. Dexter enjoyed a nice, icy water and, of course, I provided him with some extra treats and fresh veggies from my plate.

St. Augustine beaches are even dog-friendly! St. Augustine and the surrounding area has some of the best beaches in Florida. That was a welcomed treat, as a lot of the beaches on the west side of Florida are not dog-friendly unless they are a specific dog beach. We visited Ponte Vedra Beach, where Dexter enjoyed mucking around the beach, sniffing the waves, and trying to eat the sea shells on the shore.

If you are looking for dog-friendly beaches, historic attractions, outdoor activities, dining, and shopping, you won’t want to miss St. Augustine on Florida’s Historic Coast. While many vacation spots boast of pet-friendly hotels or dog-friendly beaches, few destinations are as canine-centric as Florida’s Historic Coast.

Before you go, make sure you check out St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra & The Beaches Visitors & Convention Bureau for guides, maps, things to do, and much more.

During our dog-friendly Florida vacation, our family was invited to stay at The Historic Peninsula Inn in Gulfport, Florida. Boy, am I glad we took them up on their generous offer! The Historic Peninsula Inn is situated in the center of Gulfport’s charming and dog-friendly merchant district. The location is within walking distance of a variety of shops, parks, and dog-friendly restaurants in Gulfport, Florida.

Watch Video

When we arrived (early, as usual), I was blown away at The Historic Peninsula Inn’s outside beauty. The grounds surrounding the breathtaking yellow inn were full of lush trees, plants, and flowers. While I walked up the steps, I was thinking to myself, how much fun we were going to have in Gulfport, Florida.

I was immediately greeted by Thomas at the front desk. As luck would have it, our room was ready, and we were able to check in early. The Historic Peninsula Inn offers twelve unique guest rooms and suites. We were staying in the pet-friendly room, The Casablanca Suite.

Thomas escorted me to my room and showed me how to use the historic elevator, which was installed just after World War II. The Historic Peninsula Inn has quite a history. The inn was built in 1905 as the Bayview Hotel. After World War II, the inn operated as Cedar’s Hospital for injured veterans returning from the war. After the hospital, the building was converted to a nursing home and later, a retirement home for gentlemen until the late 1980s when it sat empty and didn’t open again until 2002. In 2016, Veronica Champion revamped the building and turned it into the charming Historic Peninsula Inn.

This dog-friendly suite had 2 bedrooms, perfect for our family of 3. The main bedroom had a queen-sized bed, and the 2nd bedroom had 2 twin-sized sleigh beds.

Our dog-friendly Florida suite included a very large bathroom, hair dryer, bath essentials, towels, flat-screen TV, coffeemaker, bottled water, Wi-Fi, and a complimentary Florida breakfast! It also included a mini refrigerator, which is an important amenity for me since Dexter eats a fresh food diet. After walking around the suite, I was very happy with the cleanliness, layout, and comfort our rooms offered. This feeling would be confirmed by all 3 of my family members after our very restful and comfortable night.

Dog-Friendly Restaurants-Isabelle’s Restaurant

When traveling with dogs, it sometimes can be a challenge to find dog-friendly restaurants. But, I was in luck, as this Gulfport dog-friendly inn also offered a dog-friendly restaurant, Isabelle’s Restaurant, which not only offers indoor seating, but a fully covered patio and a second outside patio for outdoor seating. Inside, they frequently have live music and also host live music on their outside patio.

More dog-friendly outside seating

Isabelle’s Restaurant was awarded the “Best of the Beaches” and “Best of the Road” by Rand McNally, so I knew we would be in for a treat eating at this dog-friendly restaurant.

My parents started out with the Cornbread and Biscuit Basket. Cheddar jalapeno cornbread and buttermilk biscuits with cinnamon-honey butter. They both were raving at how unique and delirious these fresh biscuits were.

I ordered the Fried Green Tomato BLT, and boy this sandwich did not disappoint. Three fried green tomato slices, applewood bacon, lettuce, pimento cheese on a brioche bun. For my side, I chose the White Truffle and Gouda Macaroni and Cheese. Yes, it was as good as it sounds, but actually, even better!

For dinner, my mom ordered the Heirloom Tomato and White Wine Alfredo Pasta, and my step dad went with the lamb T-bones. Did they enjoy their meals? My step dad is still talking about how this was the best lamb he has ever had, and we all agree this was the best meal during our entire visit to Florida!

The Historic Peninsula Inn knows how to serve up fresh and scrumptious food. Their morning breakfast was impressive, too! They offered fresh fruit, quiche, and these amazing scratch fruit muffins. Yes, I had two muffins! I even ate and really enjoyed the quiche, and I’m not usually a fan of eggs.

Blueberry Hill Breakfast Cafe

All I can say, is I’m so happy that I saw the road sign for Blueberry Hill Breakfast Cafe when I was checking into my pet-friendly hotel! When Dexter and I travel, we always look for tasty and accommodating dog-friendly restaurants and outdoor patios. However, this was a bit of an oddity for us.

Let me explain.

On our weekend Chicago trip, my travel companion and I were going to grab an early morning breakfast and leave the pups in the car while we ate. No worries, it was cool, the car was parked in front, and they were also crated and covered. Really, the dogs were totally safe and happy.

We saw the sign for Blueberry Hill Cafe and thought it sounded like a great breakfast spot. We were greeted with such warmth and hospitality, which is always appreciated. When I was reading their menu, it was really hard for me to choose, because they had so many great offerings. Specialty pancakes, crepes, omelets, skillets, sandwiches, and salads to name just a few. They even offer organic coffee and freshly-squeezed juice and smoothies!

Baked blueberry French toast it was! This was not your ordinary French toast. This bread was made with loads of Michigan blueberries baked right into the bread batter. Think of blueberry bread, then grilled to perfection and topped with more fresh blueberry compote and a fresh cream cheese dipping sauce. Seriously. This was an amazing delight. I’m just sorry I wasn’t prepared to write this review and only had my phone to take a quick photo before I dove in.

Dog-Friendly Outdoor Cafes in The Chicago Area

As we were wrapping up our breakfast, the waitress brought us coffees to go. How amazing is that? We saw they had an outside cafe, so I inquired if the patio was dog-friendly, and it was. So, day two, here we come.

The next morning, we were super excited to eat once again at Blueberry Hill Cafe, this time with our pups. Once again, the staff was a real delight to be around. They helped us find a great seat for the dogs, brought them ice water and lime. What a treat! I originally ordered a side of bacon for us all to share, then decided fruit might be a better choice. Well, our wonderful server brought the pups both fruit and bacon!

This time I went for the Chunky Monkey Waffle. Yes, you read that correctly, and yes, I’m always in the mood for sweets. But, if you have more of a savory palate, my travel buddy had a few different omelets and loved them! Now, back to the Chunky Monkey. Pecans are baked right into the waffle batter and topped with bananas, chocolate syrup, more pecans and a homemade whipped cream. And yes, it was as good as it sounds!

Blueberry Hill Cafe’s friendly, family atmosphere was combined with great prices and exceptional food! Blueberry Hill has been servicing the Chicagoland area for over fifteen years with locations in Aurora, Darien, Homewood, Homer Glen, LaGrange and Oakbrook. Their website says, “At Blueberry Hill, we agree that Mom was right when she made sure you left the house with a good breakfast in the morning.” And I can vouch for this slogan. If you are in the Chicagoland area looking for a dog-friendly restaurant or just something for the family, you won’t want to miss this gem.

The first thing I noticed was the old-time feel of the store. The wooden store shelves gave the store a warm feel, and they held a lot of local products, including their Big Moose peanut butter. Big Moose Deli and Country Store offers a wide variety of fun and unique grocery store products and souvenirs, including jams, t-shirts, candy, and Vermont maple syrups. If you are looking for something to eat, they have a deli counter full of great sandwiches including their famous pulled pork. If you have a sweet tooth, check out their pastries, pies, and chocolates. Yum!

Pet-Friendly Indiana Activities

Taking dog-friendly trips is always such a great adventure. But the adventure doesn’t have to stop at the destination; the trip there and back can be just as fun. On our way home from Chicagoland, Dexter, Levi, Chris, and I took a few side-trips, including visiting the Mid-American Windmill Museum in Kendallville, Indiana.

The dogs were welcomed with open hands and chin scratches. We started our tour in the Windmill Museum Barn and Gift Shop. We enjoyed an entertaining 8-minute video on the history of windmills and how they operated. It was very interesting and quite fun. After the documentary, our fun tour guide took us inside the room that houses and displays various parts of old windmills and windmill memorabilia and tools.

Enjoying our movie

The barn itself was owned and donated by Walter and Marie Klinger and moved from Avilla, Indiana to its new home in Kendallville, Indiana. The barn is a classic example of mortise/tenon construction with no nails. The wood is hand-hewn, and pegs are used to hold the structure together. It’s a pretty amazing site and work of art.

Next up, we walked the museum grounds and viewed the 52 windmills on display! The variety of windmills was nothing less than mind-boggling. We were able to enjoy windmills in sizes ranging from the two-foot steel Fairbury all the way up to the fifty-two foot wood Robertson.

We found it as a stop along the way home, but the Mid-America Windmill Museum would actually make a great destination trip. I am so glad that my travel buddy found it and suggested that we check it out. We all had a great time. If you find yourself in the Kendallville, Indiana area, check out this fun site. Tell them Dexter sent you.
