Summer has finally arrived in Washington! This season brings so many amazing opportunities to explore and enjoy new adventures and locations all around the state, but what makes any summer spot even better? When you can bring your furry friend with you! Whether it is at the beach, hiking a trail, or even going to a brewery, here are a few pet-friendly options to enjoy this summer!
As its name rightfully reflects, Washington State’s longest beach offers miles of wide sandy spaces, making this a summer paradise for all the lucky dogs who get to play on these shores! The beach has also been known to host Doggie Olympics too!
About an hour and a half north of Seattle, you can find the most visited state park in Washington is also pet-friendly! As long as your pup stays leashed, you can enjoy the moderate 4.7-mile loop of Rosario Head Trail to Lighthouse Point and Lottie Point.
Yakima Valley Wine Country
This area in Eastern Washington is home to over 100 wineries and a lot of them are pet-friendly! If you are looking for a quick summer getaway, what could be better than sipping wine with your furry best friend at your side! If you are looking to stay west of the Cascades, there are a number of options, but Spoiled Dog Winery on Whidbey Island seems to be a crowd favorite – they even have their own “Winery/Vineyard Dogs” on duty!
In Redmond, you can find a 40-acre off-leash dog park, just a portion of the 640-acre Marymoor Park! This space offers open fields, swimming opportunities in the Sammamish River, and hiking/walking trails, a perfect day trip for you and your pooch!
Leavenworth Waterfront Park & Beer Garden
Traveling through the mountains this summer? Make a stop in the Bavarian town of Leavenworth! The beautiful waterfront park is pet-friendly and walks just along the Wenatchee River. When you are done with your walk, bring your dog with you to cool off Müchen Haus’s beer garden where you can enjoy a cold beer under their covered patio.
In almost every zip code around the state there seems to be a number of local dog-friendly breweries and bars to enjoy, find one in your local area!
No matter if it is in the mountains, at the beach or enjoying a cool drink there is no better way to enjoy the summer than with your four-legged friend at your side!
