Published

In honor of National Pet Day on April 11th, BestPlaces and Motel 6 partnered to present the best cities in the United States for visiting on a road trip with your pets and Mt. Pleasant was listed as being the 4th best.

“When you’re on the road it’s important to enjoy the trip, and that means finding cities like these which not only have great resources but also plenty of activities and sights to see,” said BestPlaces president Bert Sperling. “We chose the best cities for traveling with your pet by analyzing the availability of local dog parks, greenspaces, hiking and walking trails, pet stores, veterinarians, and dog-friendly dining options.  Local climate was also considered, because it’s a challenge to go exploring when the temperature is over a hundred or there are drifts of snow.”

In every state, BestPlaces determined the ideal place to stop for some rest, adventure, or exploration. Here are the top ten cities for traveling with your pet:

  1. Santa Monica, CA
  2. Rockville, MD
  3. Santa Fe, NM
  4. Mount Pleasant, SC
  5. Newport, RI
  6. Gloucester, MA
  7. Richmond, KY
  8. Bend, OR
  9. Asheville, NC
  10. Charlottesville, VA

Here’s what the website had to saw about Mt. Pleasant’s inclusion on the list:

“Just north of Charleston is the city of Mount Pleasant. It’s a great spot to visit or stay as you and your pet travel Highway 17 along the Atlantic coast. And its mild winter climate is a warm and welcoming change to the chilly Northeast winter.”
