3 Reasons St. George Island Is the Best Dog-Friendly Vacation in Florida
Pugs Can Play on the Beach
St. George Island is home to many pet-friendly beaches! Dogs are allowed on both the beach and bay side of the island as long as they are leashed per the July 2017 Franklin County Animal Control Ordinance. Wake up early and take Fido out for a walk on the beach to watch the sunrise, or take a nighttime stroll to see the stars.
Dogs are restricted in some areas of the St. George Island State Park on the eastern end of the island, so check out the State Park website before bringing them there. Dogs must also be leashed at all times in St. George Plantation, the private community at the western end of the island.
Restaurants Are Welcoming
You don’t have to leave your pet home when you go out to eat! As long as you sit outside, you can take your four-legged friend to nearly any restaurant on the island. They’ll be treated like royalty with water bowls and possibly even the occasional treat. We recommend heading somewhere with ample outdoor seating like Paddy’s Raw Bar. Their laid-back picnic tables and beautiful views of the bay are the perfect place to bring the whole family. Plus, the food is great, too!
A Place to Stay
Of course, the most important part of choosing the perfect dog-friendly vacation in Florida is where to stay. Collins Vacation Rentals has tons of dog-friendly properties! Choose based on size, location, and preferred dates. Vacation rentals are limited to two dogs, but some properties limit the size of the dogs.
