Dogs are family. Not only do they share our homes, they protect us and love us unconditionally. Unfortunately, we are often forced to leave them behind when we go out for a fun-filled family day. We’re here to offer you just a few of the local options for a good time that will welcome all your children (no matter how many legs they have).
Washington Oaks Gardens State Park is a 20+ acre property that borders both the Atlantic Ocean and the Matanzas River. It has something for everyone in the family, beaches, rivers and streams, manicured gardens and fountains and miles of trails for hiking. According to Elizabeth’s review on BringFido.com: “This trip was a fantastic 7 mile hike for me and my amazing dog, Maddy. We were accompanied by a friend and her owner as well. If you are up for an adventure then go for it”
For some of us, a good time out involves food, drink and friends. “Bone Appetit” is a pet-friendly foodie tour of historic St. Augustine. You and your pooch can enjoy hearty samplings from select restaurants along with optional beer and wine pairing. While you enjoy the deliciousness and aesthetics you’ll also learn about the colonial city and their four-legged friends.
