    Great Option for Dog Parents!

    We vacationed in the area and never leave our dog behind while away from home. (We rarely leave her for anything even at home!) Anyway, this obviously ties us down & limits our options on activities to enjoy, so we were thrilled to learn we could bring her to The Island. Fun walking around & seeing shops as well as watching some kiddos getting their nerve up to mini bungee jump. Again, something we couldn't normally enjoy if they weren't dog friendly. Would be an easy 5 stars if more stores/restaurants would post dog friendly or not. The whole place also stays REALLY packed. Side note: trail by the parking lot along the Pigeon River is perfect for walking the pooches as well!

    Fun for the whole family...pups included!

    We came here to give us something to do during the day, the pups loved it and loved the attention and all the lights and water! Some stores allowed pups and the ones that did were so sweet and even had treats! No one made us feel unwelcome with the dogs. The only thing they could do, is for more stores to make it clear on the door/window whether they are pet friendly or not, just for convenience but everything was great! Super fun place for everyone to go of all ages!

    No problems

    We only really came so we could eat on the patio at the Mellow Mushroom, we were able to do that no problem. Dogs enjoyed walking around the island. Island does have a nice family environment.

    Small Dog Welcomed

    I brought my small 15 pound dog and was welcomed in every store I went in. Margaritaville was dog friendly on their patio. Very busy there!

    Dog Friendly But Poor At Masking

    Nov 2020 and signs everywhere about mandatory masks yet many store workers not masking. everyone was super dog friendly. many adorable shops. lots for the whole family. just wish workers would have been better at COVID-19 precautions.

    Nice Area

    The Island is a fairly large area which allowed us plenty of space to walk our Golden Retriever. I saw a few posted dog friendly shops, but I feel like they’re more small dog friendly than large dog. It’s just such a busy area and some shops are small that we felt it would be better to just walk instead. It would probably be better at a less busy time.

    Very Pet Friendly

    All of the stores welcomed our furbaby. The only exception are the cosmetic places, which we didn’t go in.

    loved it and so did our furbaby

    Extremely pet friendly

    Didn’t have great expectations considering it’s a collection of stores, however, I was wrong! Every store we went into was extremely friendly and accommodating. Several people asked if we needed water or anything for the pups which we didn’t because within minutes of arrival one of the staff members went and got 2 bottles of water and cups for our puppies to drink and would not allow us to pay for them. Several staff members asked if they could pet the dogs and would spend a couple of minutes with us. We’ve been places that will tolerate pets but these folks are welcoming. Will definitely shop those stores again!

    my dog loved the arcade lol as weird as it sounds. I guess it must of been all the lights but she was looking in every direction inside. it was Halloween so she was dressed like a bee. every store we went into she was allowed to. no dogs allowed in make up stores though including service dogs apparently because of allergy restrictions.
