I can't imagine living any place aside from New York City, but let's be real. Nothing is ever as good as vacation. I recently had the pleasure of staying at 1Hotel, South Beach and lived it up in paradise.
My South Beach recommendations:
I can't recommend South Beach enough for a pet-friendly getaway. Not that I consider myself a 'dog' in the traditional sense, but I do understand certain situations are more sensitive to my presence then others. My stay at 1Hotel was perfect, they weren't just dog friendly, they were beyond welcoming! They even gave me my very own Barkbox.
Alchemist: Lincoln Road and Design District. Edgy fun, high end shopping. Super well curated. Man human bought a Buscemi hat. They couldn't have been more friendly to me. Love that.
The Webster: Full disclosure, they were not super dog friendly and I'm not down with that, but the Chanel selection is fairly epic, so it's worth a look.
Base Superstore: Base is an ultra cool men's store selling smaller, culty fashion brands. Even though it's a men's store, both lady and man human did plenty of shopping. Think drop crotch sweatpants and concept loungewear. I personally enjoyed the extra attention from the staff.
Beachcraft: HOLY OCTUPUS. We ate that dish three times. Go get it, now.
Michael's Genuine: A plate of homemade canine friendly cookies was served. 'Nuff said. Oh, humans said the pizza was awesome too.
Izzy's Fish and Oyster: Outdoor seating was very Bean friendly. The staff made sure I had fresh water at all times and my humans shared their excellent lobster rolls and may have even snuck me an oyster or two.
Life really doesn't get much better then watching the sunset over the ocean from your rooftop pool! Hope to see you again soon, South Beach!
