We at LockLatch are firm believers that a bit of vacation time can do wonders for the wellbeing of your dog. Most dogs love going to the beach and who can blame them? There’s something about a sunny sea breeze that uplifts the soul. Because of this we’re running a series of articles featuring some of our favorite dog friendly beaches and holiday destinations along the Gulf Coast, East Coast and West Coast of the United States.
Our coastlines are host to a wealth of idyllic getaways and hidden gems to consider. Unfortunately, it’s almost impossible to mention them all in this article but below you’ll find a few of our own personal top spots, destinations that have left us with more fond memories than we can count.
We know you and your furry friend are already excited to see what we have for you this time, so sit back, relax, and enjoy our pick of our 5 favorite dog friendly beaches along the East Coast. No matter where you’re headed this summer, we have you and your furry friend covered.
REHOBOTH BEACH, DELAWARE
GOLDEN ISLES, GEORGIA
OUTER BANKS, NORTH CAROLINA
BAR HARBOR, MAINE
BLOCK ISLAND, RHODE ISLAND
Block Island holds a special place in the hearts of dog owners. Boasting 17 miles of sandy beaches, the island is meant to be explored on foot or by bike. Most of the beaches you’ll find here are quite sympathetic towards dogs but owners should be aware that the main beaches can get a little crowded in summer. Take this into consideration if your shaggy sidekick has a nervous nature. Those who want to visit the island can take the Block Island Ferry for a fun trip directly from the main land. Block Island is a stellar destination no matter how many legs you have.
And there you have it! There are so many truly special dog friendly beaches along our East Coast that it’s impossible to include them all. That’s why we need you, dear reader. Please feel free to email Steve on [email protected] if you have a favorite dog friendly gem you just have to let us know about! We would love to hear from you.
