Does a family vacation mean traveling with every member of the family, including the pets? More families than ever seem to want to take Fido along when they travel, and more hotels and resorts are offering pet-friendly accommodations.

The newest one in Myrtle ​Beach is Springmaid Beach R​esort, which became dog friendly in the fall. The resort has designated 13 rooms on the first floor of the Cypress Building along with a fenced doggie run for pets. The resort allows a maximum of two dogs per guest room, and the​re are a few other rules to follow. Springmaid Beach is on the oceanfront at the south end of Myrtle Beach.

There also are dog-friendly beach houses, campgrounds and other places to visit with your pets. The key is to do your homework before you leave home. DogFriendly​.com will help guide you to accommodations that will be happy to welcome your pet. It also lists pet-friendly shops, attractions, outdoor restaurants and parks by city.
