Our pets are like family, and we sometimes want to include them in our travel plans. If you will be visiting Illinois, 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.
