Travel Tips

Pet Vacation Homes - Helping you plan Pet Friendly Vacations and Traveling with Pets

Find the perfect pet friendly vacation

Traveling and vacationing with pets is becoming more and more common throughout America as pets become a bigger part of American families. The Center for Marketing Analysis estimated that in 2003 63 percent of American households owned at least one pet. This number means that a staggering 69 million American households are pet owners.

Americans are not just owning pets, but are catering to those animals and treating them like members of the family. In 2003 alone, Americans spent $31 billion dollars on pet related expenses, including veterinary visits, pet food and snacks as well as pet grooming, lodging and boarding.

As the number of pet households continues to climb in the United States, so does the number of pets that are traveling with their owners. While only 58% of household pets ever traveled with family members in 1995, in 2003 nearly 68% of pets had traveled at least once with their owners. One third of those numbers also include owners who have found lodging where their pets are able to room in with them during travel or vacation time.

One of the largest American age groups traveling with pets are Baby Boomers. As Baby Boomers from the years 1946-1964 make up nearly 28% of the population, where they spend their money is important to take into consideration. Baby Boomers make up the highest travel volume of any age group in the United States, as well as one of the largest age groups for owning pets. Often Baby Boomers have decided to take on a pet to fill up the household after children have moved away. An amazing 39% of boomers from the age range of 55-64 owned pets in 2003 and 25% of boomers over 65 also own pets.

With these statistics in mind, it is important to recognize that pets are becoming a more regular part of the American vacation, especially with the Baby Boomer generation.
While the number of families traveling with pets continues to rise, this also means an increase in the need for pet owners to find appropriate lodging that is “pet friendly.” Often available hotels and condominiums in a designated vacation area don’t allow for pets in the area.

This doesn’t mean that there aren’t pet friendly vacation rentals out there, you just need to know where to look. And look no further than the new website available for all types of pet lovers who are planning to vacation or travel with their pets.

The Pet Vacation Homes website provides animal lovers an opportunity to search for lodging throughout parts of Florida, but specifically in areas surrounding Tampa and Sarasota. The majority of available homes are located near Sarasota in small quaint, coastal towns like Venice, Cedar Key, Cape San Blas, and Nokomis. There are also pet friendly homes available for rent closer to the Atlantic side, near Disney World, in Kissimmee.

As the website begins to grow, other pet friendly vacation destinations outside of Florida are also being adding to the list. So far the website also includes listings for the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, a wonderful place to let your dogs run free. As well the website lists a few bed and breakfast destinations in North Carolina that don’t mind accommodating your furry friends either!

This website is not just a good resource for finding lodging but also for planning a vacation with pets as well. While a vacation without pets may include lots of lounging and dining, vacationing with pets most likely means you are searching for a more adventurous vacation destination. The Pet Vacation Homes website can help pet owners search for hiking trails, biking trails, walking trails and even dog parks and pet friendly outdoor cafes that will cater to your pooch.

If you plan on taking your pet but will need to get away for a few days without pets in hand, the website offers tips for finding good boarding establishments in the town where your pet friendly rental is located. As well, the website also offers safety tips and procedures for different parts of town to help keep your pet safe when traveling.

The site is a new website dedicated to helping pet owners find vacation destinations for their furry friends. Log on to the website and head to the “Find a Property” link to begin your search for destination homes. If you don’t find a vacation destination that suits your needs, continue to check back as the site will only grow from here. If you own vacation destination rentals and would like to post your pet friendly vacation rental on the website, fill out the form under “List a Property” and the website owner will promptly contact you regarding posting your rental home.< br>Links to Friends of the Pet Vacation Homes Site: Yosemite Lodging & Vacation Rentals: offers vacation homes and cabins for rent inside Yosemite National Park.
