It’s the travel dilemma every pet lover dreads: what do you do with Fido during family vacation? He’s scared of the vet, the kids next door can’t be counted on, and–to be perfectly honest–you’re just going to miss the heck out of the little guy while you’re away.
Fortunately, pet care doesn’t have to be a problem in Ohio’s Largest Playground. Home to numerous pet-friendly attractions and accommodations, Warren County is happy to host your furry friends! Here are just a few of your best bets for pets:
Kings Island & The Beach
Two of Warren County’s most popular human attractions, Kings Island and The Beach water park also cater to four-legged visitors. Park goers can leave their pets with trained caretakers at Kings Island’s Pet Care Center throughout the season (fee), or bring them in on special occasions. Open in 2014, Kings Island’s Dog Days invite owners and their canine companions to Snoopy’s Halloween Party, a seasonal celebration held at the park’s accompanying water park, Soak City.
The final day of the Beach water park’s season also offers a Dog Day celebration, which lets owners bring their dogging-paddling pals for a dip in the park’s wave pool.
Featuring more than 40,000 acres of land designated by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Warren County is also home to a number of environmentally-friendly–and pet-friendly–parks, forests and trails. Simply put, its 60-plus miles of hiking trails and 2,500 acres of lake water make finding a nice spot for a walk in the park…well…a walk in the park!
Places that Pamper
Should your getaway plans prove less than pet-friendly, there’s still no need to leave your pals at home. Several of Warren County’s hotel and lodging options welcome pets, including one that won’t accept anything else! The Red Dog Pet Resort and Spa is a state-of-the-art pet lodging facility that offers boarding, grooming and plenty of play time. So, while you’re out having a blast at Warren County’s people-only hangouts, you can relax knowing your pets are having a tail-wagging time of their own.
