And it’s a fun list to top (via the Houston Business Journal):
Houston has earned the hospitable distinction of being named the country’s most pet-friendly city for travelers, according to travel-industry group AAA.
The Bayou City — which has two off-leash dog parks and 20 AAA-accredited emergency veterinary hospitals — led a contingent of three Texas cities taking the top three spots in the rankings, with 108 hotels that accept pets.
With 98 AAA-rated lodgings that accept pets, San Antonio ranked second in the United States for pet-friendly hotels. Meanwhile, Austin landed at the No. 3 position, with 72 AAA-rated hotels and motels that accept pets. Dallas rounded out the Texas cities on the top 10 list, coming in at No. 6 with 62 pet-friendly accommodations.
Now that’s world, er, woof-class. =)
SOMEWHAT RELATED THOUGHT: Maybe it’s not Houston residents causing the city to rank so poorly in this survey.
