I’m Amy, the founder of GoPetFriendly.com and a certified pet travel nut.
In 2010, Rod and I decided to chuck our former life and move into a motorhome. Since then, we’ve been exploring America’s highways and byways with Ty and Buster, tracking down pet friendly destinations and sharing our travels on the Take Paws blog.
NO MATTER HOW LONG THEY LIVE,
OUR PETS ARE NEVER WITH US LONG ENOUGH.
BUT THE MEMORIES WE MAKE TOGETHER LAST FOREVER.
We took on our biggest challenge in 2017, setting out on a 15,000-mile road trip to visiting the most pet friendly attraction in each of the lower 48 states. Choosing just one destination in each state was hard! Each selection had to represent the best of that state. And combined, our choices needed to demonstrate the variety of pet friendly experiences to be had across the country. From beaches to mountain tops, bustling cities to quiet retreats, a canoe trip and a train ride … The Ultimate Pet Friendly Road Trip was epic.
It became clear that we needed to share our experience with other pet lovers, and I hope this book will inspire you, encourage you, and give you the tools needed to create precious memories with your pets. It’s a guide book and a pet lover’s bucket list – but it’s also an invitation to spend a lifetime with your pets, collecting experiences you’ll always remember. While it would make a great coffee table book, nothing would delight me more than to find your copy creased and worn, with attractions checked off, and pages dog-eared and marked with slobber.
