Texas With Dogs: Dog-Friendly Places to Travel in the Lone Star State


For years, Texas has promoted itself as the “land of contrasts.” Rolling hills, rugged deserts, verdant forests, and sandy beaches are all found within its borders—and all await exploration by you and your dog. Regardless of the kind of getaway you and your four-legged travel companion are seeking, you’ll find it in the Lone State. From sun, sand, and surf to big city fun to western adventure, destinations across Texas welcome dogs with open paws.

In our full-color DogTipper’s Texas with Dogs guidebook, we cover some of our favorite dog friendly Texas travel destinations. We focus on locations that don’t just accept dogs but welcome them and often include extras that recognize that your dog is an integral part of your vacation experience.

In this special DogTipper section, we’re pulling in lots of extras: maps, video, and photo galleries featuring dog-friendly destinations in our home state. We hope you’ll use this guide along with our paperback DogTipper’s Texas with Dogs to help plan your next getaway!
