Lifestyle

The state of Georgia has a lot to offer.  It’s rich history, along with the vast variety of scenery, give someone just about anything you can think of.  From mountains, lakes, hiking trails, rivers, and beaches, adventure never stops!

For animal lovers, pets are family.  And when it comes to traveling around, it’s good to know when places are pet friendly!  According to GoPetFriendly.com, when it comes to a pet friendly vacation destination- Georgia is hard to beat!

GoPetFriendly suggests the best times to plan a trip to any area of Georgia with your pet is during the spring or fall.  Which makes sense to those of us from the Peach State.  Those summer months can be brutal when it comes to the heat and humidity! On top of (potentially) milder temperatures in the spring and fall, in the spring, you also get the beauty of blooming trees, like the dogwoods and azaleas.  Apparently spring is also a lower season for tourism in the state, making it a great time to get deals on lodging. And in the fall, the trees show off many vibrant colors as the leaves turn a variety of shades.

Exploring Georgia with your pup?  Don’t miss the historic beauty of Savannah.  You can also enjoy pet friendly trails at Providence State Park in Lumpkin, or enjoy the southern end of the Appalachian Trail at Springer Mountain.  And don’t forget the beach!  Many of our coastal cities offer pet-friendly spots.

In fact, GoPetFriendly lists the top 20 pet friendly cities in Georgia!  Augusta made the list, as well as some of our favorites like Savannah, Jekyll Island and Tybee too!
