Our 5 Favorite Dog-Friendly Summer Getaways
The Dog Days of Summer
If you haven’t noticed, summer is officially here in Central Florida! Around our neighborhood, we’ve seen more people walking their furry friends and playing outside, and we’re sure you have too. That’s why this is our favorite season of the year - it gives us the perfect opportunity to take our dogs outside to exercise and have fun.
If you live in the Central Florida area, you’re in a great spot for pet-friendly activities. Here are just a handful of our favorite summer dog destinations in the Orlando area:
Wekiva Island: The Island is a fun destination for pets and owners alike! Located at Wekiva Springs, Wekiva Island is 100% dog friendly, from the cabana to the bar and even to the canoe! This is a great choice for any pet parents whose pup has an adventurous spirit and likes to play in water.
Thornton Park: Want to bring your dog along while you head out for a quick bite or a coffee? Stop by Thornton Park, where you can find plenty of pet-friendly spots with outdoor seating. Dexter’s is one of our favorites!
Dog Parks: Great news: Orlando has a number of beautiful dog parks where you can take your pup to run off some energy. Lake Baldwin Park features a small dog beach where pups can wade and splash as well as plenty of dry areas to explore. There’s probably a park close to your home!
Smyrna Dunes Beach: If you’re willing to drive a few extra minutes, you’re in for a treat at Smyrna Dunes Beach. This beach is dog-friendly, so you and your pup can have fun in the sun together. Be sure to pack extra sunscreen!
