Where to Have Fun With Your Dog in Boston

Traveling with your dog? Pet-friendly Boston is one of the best cities to visit with your four-legged friend. The dog culture in Boston is strongest during the summer, when you can visit the beach, go boating, and dine at restaurants that feature dog-friendly menus. Here’s where to have fun with your dog in Boston.

Head to the Beach

Head to Carson Beach, part of Boston’s three-mile-long sandy shoreline. At the connected South Boston Bark Park, dogs can enjoy their very own section of the beach.

Take a Boat Ride

Dogs are permitted on the water taxi to Deer Island and Nut Island in Boston Harbor. Although within the city limits, these picturesque islands feel a world away. Let your dog enjoy the great outdoors while you take in some of the best views of the Boston skyline.

Pet-Friendly Boston Dining

There’s no shortage of Boston restaurants with outdoor tables that allow your dog to sit with you as you dine. Head to The Hill Tavern (228 Cambridge St.) in Beacon Hill, known for its weekend brunch. For a special treat just for your dog, don’t miss J.P. Licks (1106 Boylston St.), a dog-friendly ice cream parlor and coffee shop.

Visiting Boston? Discover an urban sanctuary for you and your dog. Pet-friendly Boston stays at The Whitney Hotel include all the amenities you could need or want, plus special perks for your pet, such as insanely plush beds and gourmet dog treats. Because your best four-legged friends deserve a Beacon Hill stay as bespoke as yours.
