Dog-Friendly San Antonio Texas – The Riverwalk & Alamo Awaits

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

Tara & Dog Toby at San Antonio’s Riverwalk

San Antonio Texas is the state’s most popular tourist destination. And why not? It’s the city with the most history in the state. It is also beautiful. The Riverwalk is a not to be missed tourist site. The Alamo? Enough said. This territory was controlled by the Comanche Indians before Mission San Antonio de Valero was founded in 1718. This mission was converted into a military outpost named The Alamo. During the Texas Revolution the Alamo played a historic role. The center of modern San Antonio is the Riverwalk, in downtown. The historic sites are within a few blocks of the Riverwalk as are most of the large downtown hotels. Over the last ten years, San Antonio has grown more and more dog-friendly and is now a top dog-friendly destination in the nation.


Dog-Friendly Tampa – St Pete Florida

Clearwater Beach

Clearwater Beach

The Tampa Bay area is made up of three different communities that grew up for largely different reasons. Tampa, with 300,000 residents, was settled by the Spanish in 1539. It grew in the 1800s when Henry Plant extended his railroad to the city. St Petersburg (population 250,000), Clearwater and the beach areas grew up as a retirement location in the late 1800s. And Sarasota was built in large part by money from John Ringling, of Ringling Brothers Circus fame. The three cities all have appealing downtowns, with Tampa having Franklin Street, which is a pedestrian area. St Pete has a number of restaurants and shops downtown and Sarasota has a waterfront and storefronts with crafts and artwork. Your dog will like browsing these areas with you as well.
