    Florida - Next best trip.

    Since we missed this week on St. Barts, we're gonna pack up and throw the dawg into a van and hit the road next week.

    Roadtrip!

    We're gonna visit some family in Georgia and northern Florida. Then, hit Miami (my hometown for a few years) and the Keys. Kathy wants to spend some time in the Everglades (guess I'll have to keep the pup from going after 'gators. He'd be a smalllll snack.) No real plans. Just gonna follow our noses.

    Any suggestions on dog-friendly, affordable places and new things to see this year?
    Yeah, Yeah - IMHO

    Well they are pet friendly and expensive but there is nothing like The Tides in South Beach.

    We always stay in Coconut Grove at the Mayfair House hotel (I guess now known as Mayfair hotel and spa) when we are in the Miami area- they are extremely dog friendly (special pet beds) and it is really a nice hotel. It has become more expensive recently- but a quiet location, there is a dog park a few blocks away and walking distance to outdoor restaurants where you can dine with your dog discreetly under the table - or not so discreetly in the case of our dog. She has been to a lot of hotels- but I think that is her favorite!

    Thanks all for the suggestions.

    As you may know, this was our consolation prize for missing Carnaval this year. We tossed that dawg in the car and headed south without any plans or reservations. Anything to get away from this unusual late winter.

    We visited with friends on Hutchinsons Island for a couple days and then spent the rest of the time, with a decent side trip to Miami and Key Biscayne, in the Keys. Noodled around the Everglades on the way back (first time in 35 years.)

    Although we ran up about 3600 miles, it was one of the most relaxing, longest driving and easiest trips in a while. Calling ahead while on the road to find accomodations that accept dogs was almost too easy.

    Nice. And, it's 70 degrees here today - we'll take the credit for bringing back some reasonable weather to Michigan. ;-)
    Yeah, Yeah - IMHO

    Do you run Florida's Chamber of Commerce? This thread is 5 years old.

    I think you may be onto something Andy

    I've noticed an emphasis on Florida.
