This fall, probably in mid-October or so, Nola and I will be going on a week long road trip! I'm super excited (and yes, already planing what collars to pack :p), even though it's a good ways off still. Where are we going? Well... I was kind of hoping y'all could help me with that. ;) There's no specific reason behind this trip, aside from just exploring and getting some awesome shots, and making memories and all that jazz, so I'm feeling pretty relaxed about it.
Do any of you have suggestions on where we should go? I have a few requirements, so if you can think of somewhere that fits them I'd love to here it!
- Dog friendly. This is the number one thing!!! Not just a place that's okay with having dogs around, but a place with lots of stuff to do with your dog. Parks, beaches, shopping, restaurants, ect.
- Within a reasonable driving distance of north Florida. Say, 10 hours one way or so?
- Beautiful with a warm feel to it. Kind of a vague description, I know, but I don't like cities that feel super...industrial. Yes, it's a city, but you get my meaning! Atlanta, for example, is a nice city, but I don't like how it's very urbane and industrial. Look at my top city choices below, and you'll see what I like.
- That said, I would like to focus on places that have a medium to large sized city.
Currently, Savannah GA is at the very top of my list, followed closely by St. Augustine FL. Both are beautiful, warm, very dog friendly, good distance to travel, and have gorgeous historic areas. St. Augustine is one of my favorite cities in Florida, but I haven't been in a good while and Nola's never been. I've never seen Savannah, but I'm dying to!
So if you have any suggestions, specific places like parks or shops or whatnot, let's here it!
