Palm trees, beaches and mountain adventures are calling, but sometimes the struggle comes in finding a hotel both pet friendly and awesome. Here is a list of the top three vacay stays awaiting your arrival.
Canyon Plaza Resort Grand Canyon Village South
The first on our list is the Canyon Plaza Resort. This resort allows you to bring up to two big dogs and gives you a ground-level room to make it easy for your pet to maneuver. It’s about a 10-minute drive to the Grand Canyon National Park entrance, which has many exciting elements to explore with your dog. Not to mention many restaurants and spas for mom and dad, too.
Dog-friendly restaurant in the Grand Canyon: Big E Steakhouse & Saloon
Outdoorsy RV Rental San Diego
Feel like being a little adventurous with your pup this summer? Then try out Outdoorsy. Outdoorsy is similar to Airbnb, but for RVs, which allows you to experience van life for yourself while getting closer to nature. Enrich your life and discover a new way of looking at nature with your animal partner. Unlimited number of pets allowed, so go ahead and bring your three amigos. Sea World, the Museum of Natural History and the San Diego Zoo are just a few of the neat things to be found.
Dog-friendly restaurants in San Diego: Isa Bella Restaurant, Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, The Crab Shack and many more.
The Queen Mary
Looking for out-of-the-ordinary? The Queen Mary Hotel located in Long Beach, California is where it’s at. It’s an experience straight out of the 1930s. The decor and activities this hotel offers is sure to create a lasting memory. Small dogs are allowed, and staying right at the bay provides quick and easy beach access, parasailing, bike riding and aquariums nearby.

Tips for Traveling With Your Pet:
- Keep plenty of water handy, and make sure to stop every two to three hours to let your dog go to the bathroom and stretch.
- Bring some toys from home they love playing with to keep them in a routine and ease any anxieties they may have about being in a new place.
- Happy travels from Yavapai Humane Society!
