20 Countries to Travel With Your Dog

Traveling is a wonderful experience, but having a pet dog can seriously complicate your travel plans. Do you board your dog while you’re away? Do you leave them with a friend or family member? And what do you do if you want to take Fido with you?

Nowadays, there are several house sitting websites where you can find someone to take care of your beloved pet. But the good news is that you don’t have to leave them behind!

You should, of course, research pet laws for each country (vaccination, passport, quarantine, microchips, and so on) so you don’t have any nasty surprises. As a rule of thumb, you want to look for places where your dog can feel free — where they can run and you don’t have to worry about their safety.

So, here are 20 countries that fit the bill:

1. France

France is probably one of the most dog-friendly countries to visit. You want to steer away from Paris — or any big cities for that matter — and explore the countryside. Many villas and restaurants welcome well-behaved canines, so it’s just a matter of finding the right destination and making the most of it!

2. Canada

Due to its vast size and abundance of nature, Canada is another top spot to bring your four-legged friend. If you’re in Toronto, for instance, a great place to go is Eldred King Woodlands, where you can go on hikes with your dogs (with no leashes) and there’s even a pond where they can swim! Can’t get better than that!

3. Hungary

If you’re planning to take your dog on a European trip, but your budget is a bit limited, Hungary might be the place for you. With superb temperatures during the summertime, you can travel to Lake Balaton and enjoy its surroundings. Though only humans are allowed to swim in the lake, dogs can have fun at Tihany – Belső-tó (Inner Lake) or on a hiking trip to the Ciprián Spring.

Lights Out: Abandoned American Drive-Ins

The first drive-in movie theater was opened in the United States in 1915. This innovation marked yet another step in the American entertainment industry.

Although for a time, drive-in movie theaters were popular all over the United States, with almost a thousand open during their heyday in the 1950s and 60s, the rise of the luxurious multiplex drove most American drive-ins out of business.
