Put on Snoopy’s aviator hat and head to the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson, one of the best pet-friendly museums of its kind in the country. You and your furry co-pilot can meander through six hangers and view almost 400 aircraft on display, including a Wright Flyer, a Boeing 787, and a Douglas A-26 Invader from World War II. You can spend hours perusing the exhibits to learn about sea planes, amphibians, aircraft carriers, women in flight, and so much more. Included with your ticket is admission to the 390th Memorial Museum, which houses the last B-17 Flying Fortress flown by any branch of the US Military and details the experiences of the 390th Bomb Group who were captured during World War II. Pups are not allowed on trams or the AMARG tours.
Touch down for the night at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort. Your pup will be treated to a ‘Loews Loves Pets’ amenity kit upon arrival. Don’t miss the pet room service menu offering delicious, one-of-a-kind items from the hotel’s executive chef. If you’d prefer to dine out alongside Fido, head to the hotel’s dog-friendly Cascade Lounge or the patio of Bill’s Grill.
