Pet sitting services or kennels for your beloved furry friends while you are away on vacation can really start to add up in cost, not to mention mental anguish for the animal.
When it gets to the point where the price outweighs your savings on cheap flights, you might as well look into taking the pet with you.
And why not? They might, just as much as you, enjoy a change of scenery, perhaps with large amounts of sunshine, sandy beaches and little lizards to play with in the bushes.
They might also enjoy the road trip to get there (especially if that involves a little head-out-the-car-window action for the dogs and some relaxation and napping time for the cats).
Plus, pets are just nice to have around because of their familiar and relaxing health benefits. When you're shopping for a good Tampa hotel, here are some to consider that are also pet friendly:
