We were really looking forward to visiting this hidden gem and have been following 801 E. Main's journey from their humble beginnings. Robyn, the owner, has been frying up her famous New Orlean's style beignets from her farmer's market stand, The Poor Porker, for years and has since expanded to an amazing eclectic space at. 801 E. Main St.
I've been taking notice of Le Meridien and Bizou's beautiful Instagram feed and had to check this place out for myself. The Le Meriden Tampa hotel and it’s restaurant, Bizou, is located in downtown Tampa and the building used to be the city's formal federal courthouse. I passed by this building numerous times before and had no idea it was a hotel until I started researching the place! I was even more intrigued and wanted to stay here for the night to get the full experience of this unique hotel.
There's plenty of dog friendly bars in the Tampa Bay area, but nothing like The Dog Bar in St. Petersburg! This place is designed so that the dogs can have fun playing off leash in the park area while the owners sit at the bar and watch their fur babies have fun.
We've always loved Dunedin for being a cute and quiet town that is friendly not only to their visitors, but to their dogs as well. This town is so dog friendly that they created a dog mural on Skip's Bar and Grill to help raise money for the Dunedin Doggie Rescue. How awesome is that!?
The Aloft hotel in downtown Tampa is very pet friendly and so is the surrounding areas. We had a great time at the hotel and exploring Curtis Hixon.
St. Augustine is the perfect place to vacation with your dog!
Want to take your fur buddy shopping with you? Hyde Park Village is the perfect place!
This was a super short trip to Greenville, South Carolina, but I had to mention it because it was the most unique downtown area I've ever seen.
