The summer is here and guess what that means! It’s time for that road trip to Weymouth. What’s more, it’s the time to also include your dog on your road trip plans since Weymouth offers you incredible spots to take your pets.
However, if you’re driving alongside your pets, you need to make sure that you have a functional and the best handheld vacuum for pet hair to help you get rid the dog hair and dust that’s about to invade your SUV.
You might also need a paper map, some killer playlists to keep you, your troops and dog entertained and a spare tire just in case you have car problems.
With those in the bag, then you have to plot your trip to the beautiful British seaside town. There are incredible spots worth exploring, and here are some but a few:
The Jurassic Coast
Weymouth is right in the heart of the Jurassic Coast, talk about re-living the ‘Jurassic Park’ world adventures. If you’re a dinosaur fan, you might even fancy a trip down to Chesil Beach to hunt for fossils and ammonites. You might even spot the fossils of a raptor or a tyrannosaurus, who knows? It could be the start of a mini-Jurassic World movie for you and your friends.
Your dog will also enjoy the adventure but you first to check of the dogs are allowed at that time. There are several guides to help you out and also make the hunt even more enjoyable.
Weymouth Delicacies Spots
If you’ve been thinking about visiting this town, you probably know all their delicacies. From the humble chippy to the Pommery Dorset Seafood Festival where the best sea chefs line in the harbour to give you taste of Weymouth’s best dishes. And if you’re patient enough, you and Rex can also get a first-class seat, to some mackerel fishing escapades and the best part about that is you keep all the mackerel that you catch.
You can choose to drive or take a bus to head to the Isle of Portland. It’s the home to the famous Portland stone and Portland Bill lighthouse which offered building blocks for most London landmarks including Westminster.
Some of the quarries here are now sculpture gardens that harbour the local artists’ work. There are also several legacies from the 2012 Olympic Games. So, if you’re a fan, you’ll be delighted to see this. You can even head up the hill for a scenic view and pose by the Olympic rings.
You and Rex might also love spotting the occasional dolphin and puffin. But if you don’t want to cut your vacation and be blacklisted on Weymouth’s travel list, make sure that you avoid mentioning the word ‘rabbit ‘while you’re on the island. As the Portland dart team’s motto says, keeping Portland weird!
Weymouth is a musical town, and almost everyone you meet is either in a band or is a friend to one. Every Friday and Saturday, there’s a plethora of bands playing in every pub in town. The burgeoning comedy scene is assisted by the community-run Pavilion Theatre that hosts huge comedy acts.
If you love singing and want to share your talent, you can go to the always- entertaining open mic night at the Belvedere which openly welcomes music, comedy and even spoken word. It also offers you the best beer garden, so it’s worth checking out.
Therefore, if you want a break from the hustle of the city, visit Weymouth, and you can even claim that you went there before Harry Styles and Tom Hardy revelled in a dalliance with a town that makes you want to relocate to the seaside and give retirement a chance!
The road trip to and from a final destination offers you the opportunity to have a vacation within a vacation. If there’s no strong reason to get quickly to the target, it’s the ideal way to approach your travel arrangements. The journey itself can be the focus instead of a rush to get where everyone else is going anyway.
