    Very nice day!

    We enjoyed walking around Jamestown with our shorkie Frankie. They also have a nice cafe there where your doggo can join you on their patio for lunch.

    Great time at historic Jamestown

    Your dog cannot go intro the buildings but is allowed anywhere outdoors on the grounds with you. You just have to bring your dog in the exit gate from the historic area once you pay inside. Had a great day!

    Outdoor Museum

    Although you can’t bring dogs inside the museum or the archeology museum in the fort you can walk around the park with your dog.

    Also the pass is good for the Yorktown Battlefield as well!
