Austin named a ‘getaway for dog lovers’

A vacation without your favorite four-legged friend is nothing special, according to Condé Nast Traveler. yard-bar

The travel magazine’s newest roundup, aptly titled “5 droolworthy getaways for dog lovers,” provides a number of ideas for how to travel with your dog, from truffle hunting in Oregon to “Bikejorging” in Vermont.

What is there to do for pets and their companions visiting Austin?

“Day drink,” according to Condé Nast, citing Austin’s many pet-friendly hotels, bars, restaurants and dog parks where you can drink alongside your dog.

In addition to a much buzzed-about cat cafe, Austin is home to Yard Bar, a bar that also serves as a dog park. Similar to Yard Bar, Dog House Drinkery is not too far away in Leander.

And when you’re done drinking for the day, Condé Nast suggests the Driskill Hotel in downtown Austin as the place for you and your pooch to rest. The historic hotel provides homemade dog biscuits as well as “Driskill Doggie Business Bags.”

Does this mean Austin will see more tourists drinking with their dogs?
