With miles of sandy beaches, endless winter sunshine and a laid-back vibe, there’s no reason to leave your four-legged friend behind when you vacation in Florida. From lodging that offers special pet beds, to beaches with off-leash play, to theme parks with nearby kennels, many places around the state accommodate visitors with pets. (AP Photo/Chris O'Meara)
