9 Pet-Friendly Resorts Near (and Within!) the City

by Danna Peña

If you're a pet parent who likes to travel, then you know it's not always a paw-some deal.

On one hand, leaving fur babies at home leads to bouts of worry and separation anxiety, creating a travel experience that's less than relaxing. On the other, not all resorts are willing to extend a warm welcome to your four-legged friends.

Fortunately, with the rise in pet owners comes the increasing demand for pet-friendly resorts, providing options for harmonious getaways both you and your furry pal can enjoy. Even more good news: they're all just a short road trip away from the bustling city center!

1. L'Sirene Boutique Resort

The pet-friendly and kid-friendly resort offers 15 exclusive guest rooms, an outdoor pool, surfboard rentals, surfing lessons, and its very own bar and grill.
