unknownFamous as the birthplace of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, Philadelphia delivers one destination, five counties and countless things to do: fascinating museums, vibrant parks, national historic sites and famous (and delicious) food, much of which is pet friendly.

Our adventure for history hounds and their families includes amazing tours, such as a BigBus tour that welcomes furry visitors and a walking tour lead by a Colonial guide that will take you and your pet on an adventure to discover the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross House and more historical landmarks.

Then put on your track shoes and have a Rocky moment as you and your dog race up the steps of the famous Art Museum. Philly is filled with so many doggie adventures, including a scenic hiking and walking trail so breathtakingly beautiful cars are forbidden on its path and historic streets where you and your pet can put your two or four feet on cobblestones where our founding fathers tread. As with any destination, visitors are encouraged to carry doggie waste bags with them in case nature calls. Responsible dog owners are ALWAYS appreciated in any city a dog lover visits!

No trip to Philadelphia would be complete without dining on world-class fare in the heart of Center City. One of the trendiest restaurants is Rouge, famous for its seasonal cuisine and welcoming pets with treats and bowls of fresh water as they and their parents watch the Philadelphia scene go by.

When it comes to caring for pets in need, Doggie Style, a very special pet store with locations throughout Philadelphia teamed up with SavedMe® a local rescue organization to showcase adoptable dogs every day in their stores. Doggie Style features pet food, treats, bakery goods, leashes, toys and more that are above and beyond what you’ll usually find in Big Box Stores.

And of course, the city of doggie love has dozens of pet friendly hotels and Bed ‘n Breakfasts. One of the most unique is a one-of-a-kind hotel that has existed on its sight for over 200 years in the

District of Chestnut Hill, listed on the National Registry of Historic Districts. The Chestnut Hill hotel welcomes dogs of all breeds and sizes with treats and is so pet friendly you might see Barley, the owners’ Newfoundland and hotel mascot lounging around the property.
