Avon Park is a little city situated smack dab in central Florida on a long stretch of US Highway 27, one of the only highways that takes you to the southern end of the state. Because of this unique attribute, Avon Park is a popular destination for tourists driving through the state and wanting to take a travel break midway through. If you and Fido get to visit this interesting city, you can stay at one of the two pet-friendly hotels available for a reasonable rate plus a pet fee. Don't worry, big dogs are allowed!
When you are ready to fill your stomach, Fido is welcome at five of Avon Park's outside benched restaurants, including a fast food chain only found in the south, and the hometown favorites for pizza, Market 27 and Little Italy. If you are looking for a sit-down meal with a friendly southern atmosphere, try the Wild Turkey Tavern.
While you are visiting, check out Donaldson Park on the lake, just a short drive off of Highway 27. In this little park, you and Fido can enjoy the natural beauty of Florida and explore the mini trails. Three vet clinics in this small town assure you that if anything unexpected happens, Fido will be taken care of!
