The next time you and your pup are hankering to get out of town for a little while, leash them up and hop in the car for one of these four dog-friendly road trips in North Carolina.
For starters, a walk on the beach with your dog is a must. With over 200 miles, there are plenty of sights and beachy smells for your dog to enjoy.
A little further inland, Raleigh has just as many fun, dog-friendly activities. If you love art and walking your dog, you have to visit the North Carolina Art Museum Park.
Nearly everywhere you go in Asheville is dog-friendly, especially the Mast General Store. The Mast General Store is a quaint, old-fashioned shopping destination.
A little further north, in the quaint town of West Jefferson, you can visit Boondocks Brewing for a nice, cold glass of freshly brewed beer.
