Assuming your dog can hold his liquor—eh, water—Vegas is as much fun for pets as it is for people! Now is the perfect time to plan a trip to Sin City with the annual Strut Your Mutt event coming up in November. This day of fun includes dog contests, pet care demonstrations, doggy theater, agility courses, and more.
Outdoor attractions abound in Vegas. First, there’s Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort Historic Park, a great draw if you’re interested in learning the city’s history. Then there’s Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, located in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The entrance fee is $6 per car—a small price for access to 520 acres of natural beauty.
You can also bring your pup on a strip tour using this walking route. Dogs can’t go inside the buildings or attractions on the strip, but he’ll get a kick out of the lights and excitement!
If your pet still has energy after that, visit one of several off-leash dog parks and then stop by the Three Dog Bakery for a treat. You can’t spend all your time with Fido, though. Not when Criss Angel and the Mirage are calling! Leave him in the Animal Inn, where your pet can enjoy some pampering and socialization.
Rest your head at one of several La Quinta Inn and Motel 6 locations, or step it up a notch at Westin Las Vegas Hotel, Casino & Spa.
