From enjoying a slow-paced vacation in Pennsylvania Dutch Country to exploring the bustling city of Philadelphia, there will never be a dull moment on vacation in Pennsylvania. You can find pet-friendly vacation rentals all throughout the state, so you won’t have to worry about leaving your dog or cat behind during your trip.
In the Poconos, ride the rails with your pup at your side on the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway. The train ride will take you through Lehigh Gorge State Park past beautiful mountain vistas, along babbling streams, and by flowing rivers, while your dog can enjoy poking its head out the open windows for some fresh air. There are also many parks to enjoy on vacation in this part of Pennsylvania. Hike Delaware State Forest with your dog, or take a walk through Salt Springs State Park. You won’t run out of places to explore. Staying in a pet-friendly rental in this region will give everyone the chance to enjoy the great outdoors while also saving money on pet-sitting costs.
Just a couple of hours southwest, history buffs will want to see the Gettysburg National Military Park. Step foot on the most famous American battlefield and tour the buildings and cemetery here. Dogs are allowed on portions of the battlefield as long as they are leashed. If you prefer the big city, Philadelphia and Pittsburg have plenty of pet-friendly things to do and places to stay, too. In Philadelphia, spend time at dog-friendly Rittenhouse Square then dine at Rouge where your dog can enjoy bowls of water and treats. Pittsburg also has lots of parks where dogs can run free, and restaurants like Coca Cafe and Osteria allow pets on outdoors on the patio.
No matter what part of Pennsylvania you plan to visit, don’t feel like you need to leave your pets behind. Choose to rent a spacious home in the Pocono Mountains, so your dog can enjoy running around, or pick a pet-friendly rental in the city and have access to restaurants that welcome your dog, too. You’ll save money taking your pets on vacation with you by eliminating the cost of boarding them, and you’ll remove the stress of missing your dog during your next trip to Pennsylvania.
