As you know, Austin
has a ton of dog-friendly places. Assuming you're taking I-20 up to Hwy 84, you can pass through Lubbock
where you can find a Sonic Drive-In
that has outdoor seating for your dog. There are a bunch of them, so you have some options.
Once you hit I-40 and connect through Albuquerque
, check out Tingley Beach
for a free place with a dog-friendly beach (must be on-leash).
Then drive to Flagstaff on I-40. Spend some time walking your dog around Coconino National Forest
and explore Arizona Nordic Village
When you get to Las Vegas
, eat at The Egg & I
, Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar
, or Big Dog's Brewing Company
