Take Your Dog (or Cat) to College
Every time I headed up to Florida State to see my kids, they asked that I bring our dog. Let’s face it; the pup is everyone’s favorite family member. Personally, I would rather travel with a pet than have our daughter adopt one of her own that may eventually become mine too, so I often obliged. (You may want to see our blog on Pets at College if you already have a grandbaby with fur.) The good news is that is becoming rather common for people to travel with their pets.
When it comes to dog-friendly restaurants, unless you have a Service/Emotional Support animal, dog-friendly means you may eat outside with them.
