Maine is a hotspot for vacations in the summertime, even for locals. Our state is so massive with so much to offer that Mainers become tourists in their own state, visiting nooks and crannies, towns and cities they've never been to before.

Whether you're a tourist or a local, there are times when I'm sure you wish you could bring your furry friend on vacation with you.

Not all pets are travel-friendly but if you have a four-legged friend who loves to hit the road, does well in new places, and wants to go on an adventure, it should be able to come with you on your trip.

Luckily, there are plenty of pet-friendly lodging accommodations in Maine and scattered all around the state, so no matter where you choose to go, you'll be able to find a spot for you and your dog. Some spots even allow cats!
