Although pets are not allowed on the beach, a professional photographer can recommend a place that is legal and can include the family pet in the photo.
Destin, FL (PRWEB) March 15, 2012
Unlike most tourist destinations, Destin can be a great place to bring the family pet on vacation. Travel website TripShock.com not only offers pet friendly accommodations in the area, but they also sell pet friendly activities as well. For those travelers that didn't think to bring the family pet this vacation, here are some reasons why Fido should come along this trip.
1) Destin "Bark" Park - New to Destin this year is the “Destin Dog Park.” This is a beautiful “off-leash” park to take a dog and let them run free. Located in the heart of Destin behind the Destin City Hall Annex (4100 Indian Bayou Trail), this park offers two separate fenced-in areas for Fido or Fifi to run, jump play and meet others. There are benches, water fountains, bag stations, and trash cans available throughout the park. The park is open 7 days a week from dusk to dawn. Grass, trees and coming soon, a giant sandy area to dig and play in, what more can a dog dream of.
2) Pet Friendly Pontoon Rentals - There are actually some pontoon rental companies that allow pets. This popular activity is typically an all day event and pets enjoy being out on the water with the family. There is always room for another helper to take the fish off the hook (or eat the fish while on the hook), or fetch a dropped hat in the water. Book pet friendly pontoon rentals on TripShock.com.
3) Take a Stroll on Scenic 98 - Scenic 98 is a long stretch of quiet road that runs parallel to the beaches in Destin. It's perfect for walking or even biking with a pet. There is public parking along the scenic highway if the traveler is not within walking distance. Keep in mind that pets are not allowed on the beaches unless the pet is owned by a resident with a permit.
4) Get a Family Picture - Although pets are not allowed on the beach, a professional photographer can recommend a place that is legal and can include the family pet in the photo. Check out TripShock.com for some photographer recommendations.
