Petcations @ 1|12c

With nearly twenty percent of vacationers traveling with their pets, many are looking for places to go that accommodate their 4-legged friends. Our travels cover the full spectrum of pet-centric activities from the truly sublime to the completely absurd. We see everything from a dog surfing school in San Diego to a pet-only luxury hotel in Florida and everywhere in between. Stops along the way include a lavish California beach town devoted to dogs, a canine weight loss camp, an annual Ohio festival that honors pet skunks and much, much more.
