Illinois Pet Friendly Cheap Hotels

Illinois is a thriving Midwestern state that you will want to visit with your pets. There are 75 dog allowed on-leash and off-leash parks in the state and 7 doggie friendly beaches. Plus, there are over 350 hiking trails which allow dogs to walk along side their owners. You can find hundreds of Illinois pet friendly discount hotels along the way.

Perched on the edge of Lake Michigan, Chicago is dubbed the Windy City. But amidst the skyscrapers, public art and museums of the downtown area are Illinois pet friendly discount hotels and off leash dog parks. Winnemac Park and the Playlot at Gill Park are canine favorites, but the most fun place is Montrose Beach. In the northwest corner there is a dog allowed area. Come in May for the Bark in the Park and the Tails in the City Fest. Any time of year, even in the dead of winter, the downtown area is worth exploring. See fabulous public art and museums along the Magnificent Mile just west of the Navy Pier. Go to the doggie happy hour at Joe's Bar on Weed Street or the Bad Dog Tavern. There are many restaurants with outdoor areas that welcome pets and their owners. However, it might be best to leave your pets in their pet-friendly hotel room while you visit the free zoo in Lincoln Park or catch a Cubs, Bears, Bulls or White Sox game.

The capital city, also known as the Forest City is Springfield. This was the home of President Abraham Lincoln for almost a quarter of a century and there are many sites to tour which honor him. There is a municipal dog park on Winch Lane and several hiking trails such as the Lost Bridge Trail and the Wabash Trail which follow old railway lines and allow leashed pets to walk with their masters. Both are part of the nationwide Rails to Trails Conservancy efforts.

Just a quick drive from the Windy City is a beautiful area of the state with even more Illinois pet friendly discount hotels. Rockford has two off leash parks called Canine Corners at Searls Park and Elliot Dog Park. While in this serene city, visit the Anderson Japanese Gardens and the Khelm Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. Tour the historic neighborhoods of Churchill Grove and around Rockford College, then along the river downtown.
