Memorial Day—the most awesome three-day weekend of Spring, because it heralds SUMMER, the season of fun. It’s also a weekend that, due to rising temperatures, most people spend on the water—be it a beach, a river, a lake or a creek. The extended weekend is all about family and here at Yahoo Travel, that also includes our fur babies.
So, courtesy of the geniuses at the Ruff Guides and Yahoo Travel mascot Karl Froelich’s favorite book, Ruff Guide to the United States: 365 of the Best Places to Stay & Play with your Dog in All 50 States, we bring you five awesome trips to take this weekend where you and the entire family can get away, play frisbee and chill out on the water all day long.

Cast your line for some tasty kokanee salmon, mackinaw, and brown trout aboard a charter from Tahoe Sport Fishing. Don’t worry—doggie life jackets are provided! Rates start at $90 (doggies fish for free) and after returning to shore, you can bring your catch to the Blue Angel Cafe or MacDuff’s Public House, which will clean and cook the fish for you and Fido. Stay at the Fireside Lodge in South Lake Tahoe, where dogs of any size pay just $25 a night.
