But there’s so much more Austin has to offer. This capital city’s local art scene draws in tourists because of its top-notch museums, awe-inspiring wall art along the streets, and magnificent paintings and sculptures in a number of galleries. On top of that, Austin is home to plenty of pet-friendly attractions, ranked fourth in a list of the most pet-friendly cities in the country. You’ll also spot several dog-friendly restaurants in the city where you can enjoy a meal with your fur pals. If you’re planning to bring Fido along but clueless about where to stay, check the list below for the best pet-friendly Airbnbs in Austin, Texas.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and pet-friendly rules and regulations.
