Traveling with your four-legged friends is more popular than ever. According to research by the American Pet Products Association, more than 70 percent of U.S. households in 2022 include a pet, with dogs and cats the most popular. The research also shows 52 percent of pet owners would only book a stay at accommodations that allow pets.


Family Destinations Guide recently conducted a study of the most pet-friendly cities in the United States. The team analyzed data from vacation rental website VRBO of 50 of the most-populated cities in the United States to see which cities offered the best pet-friendly accommodations.


Top 10 most pet-friendly cities in the United States:


  1. Houston, Texas
  2. Dallas, Texas
  3. San Diego, California
  4. Jacksonville, Florida
  5. Orlando, Florida
  6. San Antonio, Texas
  7. Phoenix, Arizona
  8. Los Angeles, California
  9. Chicago, Illinois
  10. New York City, New York


A spokesperson for Family Destinations Guide said, “Traveling with your pet also allows you to experience new destinations you may never have thought to visit. For instance, pet-friendly café, restaurants, and attractions could lead to amazing discoveries you might never have found if it weren’t for your pet. You can also enjoy a more outdoorsy holiday exploring mountains, parks, and beaches.”
