Philadelphia is a city that many people visit to learn about history, see iconic sites, attend sporting events, and scope out the awesome food scene. However, you might find yourself traveling through the area with your dog because of all the dog-friendly things to do in the area or just so you don’t have to leave your pup back at home. For example, you and your pup can climb the rocky steps together, check out a local dog park, walk along the scenic Schuylkill River Trail, and go out to eat on a dog-friendly pub patio. Then at the end of the day, you can feel pampered and comfortable together by staying at one of these dog-friendly hotels in Philadelphia.
YOU'RE ALL SET!
