Unleash our inner court dog
Enjoy country delights (freshly picked pears, cackling chickens, muddy boots) during a pet friendly farm stay. Well behaved dogs are welcome at the aptly named Dog Mountain Farm in Carnation, Washington, where organic orchards, vineyards and gardens offer delicious scenery and farm dinners. And on the east coast there is the 200 acre Champlain Valley Alpacas Farm in idyllic Bridport, Vt. – Milking goats, learning to spider – good dogs and horses are also welcome.
Houseboat Vacation House
Bring some friends from your dog park together or rent dog-friendly houseboats for a family reunion on many of America’s most beautiful lakes. From lakes in the western state like Mead, Oroville and Trinity to Lake Armistad in Texas or the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri, check out prices and locations on foreverresorts.com or houseboating.org.
Trailer Life Lite
Renting a motorhome trailer – a vintage Airstream or a family model with all the homely comforts – is easy and affordable. You can also have your “accommodation” delivered to a selected campsite. Lots of trailer rentals do all of the work – towing it, hooking it up, and hauling it away. The best way to find one is to search online for a company in your vacation area.
Drive-in theaters like the historic Raleigh Road Outdoor Theater on US Route 1 in North Carolina are a great option for movie buffs who don’t want to leave their movie buffs at home. But we really love skipping the car and lounging on picnic blankets under the stars. Favorites include the oldest continuously operating drive-in in Orefield, Pennsylvania (since 1934) and the Fremont Outdoor Cinema in Seattle, where bean bags are essential.
