"The Ultimate Pet Friendly Road Trip" Gives Pet Loving Travelers an Epic Bucket List
New book features the #1 pet friendly destination in 48 states and D.C.
Author Burkert and her husband, Rod, aren't vacationers. They're professional road trippers, traveling the country in their RV with their two dogs, Ty and Buster. Their business is checking out pet friendly travel spots all over the USA for their site, GoPetFriendly.com.
In 2017 they embarked on the big dog of all road trips: a 10-month, 15,000-mile journey to the top pet friendly destination in the lower 48 states and Washington, D.C. Their adventures are compiled in "The Ultimate Pet Friendly Road Trip."
Half "how-to" and half swoon-worthy coffee table book, "The Ultimate Pet Friendly Road Trip" features 200 stunning full color photographs of the destinations as well as advice and pointers to take the guesswork and trepidation out of pet-friendly travel.
"Traveling with a pet is wonderful, but it does take some planning to make sure you and your pets have a great time," says Burkert. "The good news is that there are so many incredible spots and experiences you can enjoy together, if you know where to go."
Each chapter focuses on a different state's pet-friendly travel gem. Iconic photos accompany tips for safety, hiking options, pet rules and pet-friendly shopping and dining destinations. Burkert offers pointers to ensure pets of all personalities, ages and mobility have a safe and fun adventure with their favorite humans.
Even armchair travelers will be inspired by the Burkerts' journeys to places like Carmel Beach, California; Magnolia Plantation and Gardens near Charleston, South Carolina; Wildwood, New Jersey's Wildwood Dog Beach; Mystic Seaport in Connecticut;
For those pulling on the leash to head out onto the open road, the book provides recommendations for nine regional road trips with 5-6 stops each. Plus, readers can access a road trip planner and 65,000 pet-friendly locations en route to their destinations at GoPetFriendly.com, a comprehensive resource for all things pet travel-related.
Burkert's ultimate goal with "The Ultimate Pet Friendly Road Trip" is to inspire readers to strike out on their own adventures with their best buds by their side. "Make your pet's bucket list today—don't wait," she urges. "Take a long weekend to visit a spot or two; plan a weeklong road trip and see a few more. When you're looking back in the rearview mirror, you'll be glad you did."
