As the beloved road trip makes a comeback as a top means to travel, there is one member of the family who sometimes receives the short end of the stick… but not anymore. Enter: Scottsdale, where furry family members are not only welcomed, but highly desired.
WHERE TO STAY
Luxurious stays in Scottsdale create the perfect environment for the whole family. At the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, furry friends receive the exclusive treatment with the resort’s “Posh Paws” program. Fido will feel right at home with a comfy bed and an animal-loving staff, who are happy to assist with dog walking while guests are out and about – a win-win. Pets can also enjoy a lavish Scottsdale stay at Hermosa Inn, where each four-legged friend is greeted with a welcome letter from the Director of Guest Experience, along with a deluxe bed, food and water bowls, and most importantly, treats!
WHERE TO DINE
The mouthwatering dining options are unlimited in our sunny city, and they aren’t only for “hoomans.” At Olive & Ivy Restaurant & Marketplace, pups can indulge with fresh dog bones from the Marketplace and take in all the gorgeous sunshine on the spacious patio overlooking the Scottsdale Waterfront. Down the street at Farm & Craft, pooches get some much-needed R&R on the patio under cooling misters, where they can also feast on a bowl full of fresh chicken and grain, for a belly-filled good time.
WHERE TO PLAY
An adventure-lovers paradise, the Sonoran Desert comes fully equipped with outdoor escapades, and who loves adventure more than furry friends? See the entire valley from some of the top views in Scottsdale at the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, which features over 30,000 acres of trails for hiking, or unleash the fun around three-acres of off-leash grass and water fountains at Chaparral Park.
Travelers can give the furry family a break from the ruff life for some excitement in paradise!
