Anna Maria Island Florida: Seven Pet-Friendly Hotel Options

Anna Maria Island, located on the Gulf Coast of Florida, has the white sands and stunning turquoise waters that you just hope to find somewhere exotic. For generations, friends and families have traveled from all over the world to reach the shores of Anna Maria. That includes a lot of four-legged hikers.

Traveling with pets can be challenging. Your furry companions are too big of a part of your family to leave behind. So here are seven pet-friendly AMI hotel options:
