If you are a pet journalist, blogger, or pet enthusiast, make sure you do not miss this year’s BlogPaws Conference. Pet lovers are hosting a BlogPaws Conference on May 16-18 in Tysons Corner. The conference will be located in Fairfax in Northern Virginia, a very pet friendly area in Virginia.
This conference welcomes people from all over the country who are passionate pet writers, bloggers, journalists, and industry experts. This will be the 5th Annual BlogPaws Conference that will commence with around 500 pet writers in attendance. This will be a great opportunity for many pet lovers and people in the field to connect and enjoy the festivities.
There are plenty of other ways to celebrate your pets and connect with others too! Virginia, as a whole, is a very pet friendly state with more than 500 resorts, hotels, and bed and breakfasts welcoming furry friends. Virginia understands that pets hold a near and dear place in many hearts and welcomes these companions to join the family on their vacations and tourist destinations.
One of the major pet friendly destinations of Virginia is Alexandria. Alexandria is a beautiful old town of Virginia full of history and water bowls along the streets for your furry friend. The city welcomes dogs to tour the streets alongside of their families.
Pets are also invited to visit Historic Jamestowne. Just make sure your dog is on a leash when strolling through the cobble stoned roads of Virginia history!
Playing with your pet in Virginia’s parks also make for a great summer’s getaway or day trip. Virginia State Parks offers an opportunity to bring along your dog for just a walk in the park or even an overnight trip as well. George Washington & Jefferson National Forest and Shenandoah National Park are major attractions for those who wish to take their dogs for a stroll, with 20 miles of trail open for these four legged companions.
There are also specifically designed dog parks throughout Virginia. Let your dog roam free and meet other playful pups in Virginia Bark Parks featured in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Williamsburg, and Hampton.
