Huntington Dog Beach: California

This 1.5 mile of beach is a great place to kick off our list. Set along the South Californian Coastline, Huntington Dog Beach is a 1.5-mile strip of coastline that is dedicated to your Furry Family Members. The beach is open between 5 am and 10 pm every day, so you can take both your morning run and your evening stroll at this beach with your favorite pup.

Fort De Soto Park: St Pete/Clearwater, Florida

Fort De Soto Park is one of the best Hotspots in America for dogs of all shapes and sizes. The beaches and parks are all dog-friendly. All dogs must be kept on 6-foot leashes on the beach and within certain areas of the park, however, they are free to roam inside Paw Playground, a private park dedicated to Dogs and their Four-Pawed adventures!

There is also a fenced-in beach with separate areas for large and small dogs and when you're done with your day in the sun, head on down to the Dog Bar for a cold drink and social time.

Dogs have to be on a leash up to 16 feet long, but it is certainly worth this small inconvenience. The Driftwood beach is a marvel of nature, you and your dog will love trekking this route along with the other dozens of guided routes around the Southern Dunes and Picnic areas. The beach is host to other pet-friendly activities such as a Doggy Boat Rides and Haunted Night Trolly Ghost Tours! The Westin Jekyll Island accommodations are pet friendly so you and your pet can enjoy a long stay at this beautiful beach.
