I hope someone has some suggestions for me!
My boyfriend and I want to take a road trip this weekend (Memorial Day) with our dog. We are planning on being gone four nights, and don't want to drive more than 10 - 12 hours or so one way. Hoping the weather holds up, we are willing to go north, south, east or west (We'd prefer to end up in sunny, warm weather).
We enjoy nature - hiking trails, beaches, driving scenery. I recently hurt my back so I'm a bit reluctant to camp, otherwise we would be camping the entire time. I'd love to be able to walk around a small, cute town as well - but with the dog it probably makes more sense to stick to nature.
We'll need cheap-ish hotels that allow dogs - do most of them allow dogs these days?
We started considering the Smokey Mtns, southern Michigan or southern Illinois. It is difficult to choose without knowing the area.
Any suggestions would be most helpful, thanks in advance!!
