Spring Break is coming up soon! If you haven’t made plans to travel out of town, there’s still plenty to do right in your backyard. The best part is you can include your furry best friend. We have come up with five pet-friendly day trip ideas that you can take during spring break.
A Day In Seattle
Start the day off right by having breakfast at a pet-friendly restaurant. What’s great about some of the restaurants in Seattle is that you don’t have to dine on the patio to bring your furry best friend with you. Some let you get your dog inside, which is excellent in a rainy area like Seattle. After some breakfast, you can find many off-leash dog parks within Seattle to take your dog to. After some fun at the park, you can take your dog on a shopping spree. University Village is an outdoor mall that has a variety of shops that are dog friendly. End your day with a stop at a dog-friendly brewery for a drink.
Take A Hike
Hiking is one of the best activities you can do with your dog. It helps you get your exercise in while enjoying the fresh spring air. There are a lot of dog-friendly trails just outside of Seattle that you can use. You can choose to do a short 30-minute hike or a longer one that will take a few hours. The hiking trails offer spectacular mountain and lake views that you do not want to miss.
Kayak, Canoe or Paddle Board With Your Dog
You can rent dog-friendly canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards at Green Lake. You can take your dog out on the 259-acre lake and take a pleasant stroll around the 2.8 miles paves lake. After all that fun, you and your dog can settle on a bench for rest and people watching. Don’t forget to pack a lunch and some water for you and your dog!
Spend The Day At Washington Park Arboretum
If you’re looking for something less adventurous, your dog is more than welcome to join you when you visit the Arboretum as long as they remain on a leash. You can set your own pace as you and your furry friend explore on a self-guided tour. There is so much to see during your visit. Your dog will enjoy the fresh air and the pleasant, easy walk.
Visit Deception Pass
Deception Pass is located just an hour and a half from Seattle. The whole park is dog friendly as long as you keep them on a leash. They have a lot of different trails that you can check out, with stunning views of Deception Pass Bridge, Whidbey Island, and even seals playing in the water. So you are sure to enjoy your day with your furry best friend.
We hope you have a safe and enjoyable spring break this year from all of us at Cascade Kennels!
