Our pets are like family, and we sometimes want to include them in our travel plans. If you will be visiting Indiana, you may want to consider a stop at the state's Best Pet-Friendly Hotel.

Travel Plans

Traveling can be a challenge. There is so much planning that goes into the perfect trip, but being able to take your precious four-legged friend with you can make your travels more fun.

If you have pets, you certainly can consider boarding them while you travel, but if you plan to take them with you, it can be a challenge when it comes to staying in hotels. Not all of them are pet-friendly.

Best Pet-Friendly Hotel in Indiana

When it comes to the best pet-friendly hotel in Indiana, one takes the top spot - French Lick Resort. Country Living says the hotel even features an outdoor pup park.

We truly never get tired of a doggie dining menu—and French Lick's is truly special. Tested out on the hotel executive chef's very own canine companion, it includes Steak or Chicken a La Pooch, plus a number of dishes named after some of the hotel's favorite furry guests: Moses' Meatloaf, Bo's Half Pounder, and Scooter's Biscuit du Jour. Also on site is Lucy's Bark Park: a fenced-in, double-gated green space for you and your pup. - Country Living
