The kids are back at school so that means it is time for those people that don't have children to enjoy the empty beaches, uncrowded tourist areas and other well traveled spots. There are specials going on everywhere. I hear that some pet friendly Myrtle beach vacation rentals have some bargains right now. Just think of the places you and your pet can travel to without those crowds around. I like going hiking in the mountains as well as running on the beach with our dogs. You will have to check the local leash laws for hiking and being on the beach. You don't want to ruin your vacation with a ticket.
