Dogs of the Lowcountry: Parks, Restaurants, and Shops Fido Can Visit
What is certain to transform your house into a home? It’s not the welcome mat, nor is it the wall decor lining the stairway. Undoubtedly, what defines a home are the beings that live inside of it. And more times than not, this includes the little (or big) ball of fur lingering at your feet, getting you up and active, and picking up dropped food. Let’s face it, life is so much better with a dog.
Just as much as they enhance your life at home, they improve your time away from home. But finding destinations to accommodate your pet can prove difficult. Here’s a list of parks, restaurants, and shops Fido can visit with you.
Richmond Hill hosts dog-friendly venues like Snazzy’s Restaurant, Flashback Bar and Grill, and JF Gregory City Park. But the best spot for man and his best friend is at Bryan Country Bark Park. This “happy place for dogs” is an off-leash destination for you and your pet. Its well-maintained and central to Richmond Hill’s center, making it a canine’s oasis.
Since Pooler is purely suburban, public locations for Fido are scarce. However, one of Georgia’s staples allows your friend to dine-in. B&D Burgers has an expansive outdoor seating area, and the food is well renowned. The Front Porch, Metro Diner, and Terra Mia Italian Bistro & Pizzeria also caters to canines.
Central Savannah is one of the most dog-friendly areas in the south. The most prominent company is Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming, whose newest location is on well-known Bull Street. Woof Gang’s entire store – from the freshly-made dog biscuits to the linoleum, stain-proof floors – is crafted for canines and their companions. If you’re downtown, your furry friend will definitely sniff it out.
Various sources of entertainment accommodate for your pet: Savannah Pedicab, Gallery Espresso, and Moon River Brewing Company. Our own Savannah Bananas even host ‘Bark in the Park,’ where fans can bring their dogs to the game. Why wouldn’t they? Their ‘bat dog,’ Daisy, was found abandoned in the stadium parking lot before team president, Jared Orton, took her in.
But one of the biggest perks of Savannah is its gridded layout. Green squares are sprinkled throughout, and the city reserves vast amounts of land for public parks – some of which are very dog-friendly. Residents outlining Bacon Park love having access to a partially secluded and family-friendly outdoor space, and Daffin Park is a grassy hub beside a beautiful pond.
We are lucky to live in one of the most stunning cities in the country, and the best way to immerse yourself in its vast luxuries is with your furry best friend!
