You might look at rubber pavers. Some on this site do not like them. My clients have loved them. You can get them in oodles of colors, shapes and patterns. They are easy to replace if one goes bad. Lots of horse tracks use them because they are resilient and easier on the horses.

If you go with concrete pavers be sure and get quality ones. Your building or landscape supply yard will probably be a better choice than a box store. And to make sure they hold up you may have to seal the surface. Realize this becomes an ongoing maintenance chore once you start.
