Feature

According to a recent study from Upgraded Points, pet friendliness is not created equally throughout 50 of the most popular vacation destinations in the United States.

The study determined a city’s pet friendliness by measuring eight criteria: number of dog parks (all numerical data based on per 100,000 population/persons); number of pet stores; number of pet-friendly hotels; number of pet-friendly vacation rentals; pet-friendly restaurants; availability and number of veterinarians; total miles of hiking trails available; and total number of other pet-friendly activities.

Asheville, North Carolina, came out on top as the most pet-friendly city in the study. With a total score of 47.5 of the 50 available points, Asheville received maximum positive ratings for six of the eight determined criteria. The city’s many hiking trails, pet-friendly vacation rentals and hotels skyrocketed Asheville to first place.
