Stay: You can have a good time on a dime in Austin, so consider splurging at a hotel like The Driskill (from $270, plus a $100 pet fee), where dogs and their owners are treated like royalty.
Eat: Fuel up for a day of outdoor activities with a Cherrywood breakfast taco (farm eggs, potato, bacon, avocado, jack cheese, $3.50) at El Chilito. For lunch, order the pork ribs (and leave a little meat on the bones for you know who) at Brown’s Bar-B-Que. Come happy hour, the options are endless: Austin Terrier, Austin Beer Garden Brewing Company, Freddie’s Place, and Moontower Saloon. But if you want a taste of “Keep Austin Weird,” pay $5 to experience membership-based dog bars like Doghouse Drinkery Dog Park and Yard Bar, opening summer 2015.Back to top
