Perfect spot!Founder's Park Dog Park
I am visiting and staying in Islamorada for the week. I learned a GREAT TIP from the gentleman at the visitor center. If you are STAYING in Islamorada you can get into the park for FREE. Get your hotel to print off the dates you are staying - show it to the front gate person and they will send you to the pool office to get a pass. You now have access to the entire park including the dog park, Olympic size pool, kids playground, beach etc.
The dog park is nice. Shady spots, mostly covered in grass and there was an area with small kiddy/doggie pools and a rinse station. A lot of local of people who stay in the marina - everyone was very pleasant and friendly. There is a separate area for small dogs.
Obviously if you come here on vacation, your pup might not be used to the heat/humidity...so just take it easy and maybe go in the early morning or late afternoon :)
Huge dog beach!The Original Dog Beach
Fantastic dog beach!! There aren't fenses, however...the beach is so big that they aren't really necessary unless you have a runner! Doggie fountain at the entrance, but I suggest to bring water so they don't drink the ocean water! Being from Chicago, my dog hasnt realized that salty water makes him have the runny poos if he drinks too much. Just be sure to hydrate!!
Perfect Location. Amazing amenities. Extremely dog friendly.Argonaut Hotel
I CANT BELIEVE I FOUND THIS PLACE. It was such a perfect spot! Rooms are massive, beds and pillows are sooo comfortable, and the staff was very helpful!
I booked this through Hotels Tonight and got a steal of a deal. My dog and I felt very comfortable and we had a view of the Golden Gate bridge and Ghirardelli's from our room. Alcatraz is also in view of you have a bay facing room.
Right in Fisherman's Wharf and by the Powell/Hyde Cable Car line. You can get anywhere from this location.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND. YOU WONT REGRET IT.
Indoor Pet Tables!Terry's Lounge
I was thrilled to find this place - they have outdoor AND indoor tables for dogs.
I ordered the beet salad (Soo delicious!) And the truffle mushroom ravioli. It was excellent. My dog, Ollie, got some sweet potato fries too 😜. They do have a doggie menu as well: all beef burger Patty and chicken breast.
My server recommend a delicious Cab as well. I would definitely recommend this place! I'm sure if you look hard enough, you could spot some celebs as well! This place is (was) owned by Doris Day...the lounge is named after her son, Terry.
Best Pizza, seriously!!Pizzeria Rustica
First off - the comment below me should be deleted...Norma didn't even eat here!!!
I heard about this place from the Airbnb I was staying at and wanted to check it out. This is BY FAR the best pizza I've ever had. But seriously! I live in Chicago and spent significant time in Italy...this is the most authentic tasting Neopolitan style pizza I've had in the US. I wish I could say I'm exaggerating, but I'm not. I got their signature pizza called the Rustica - comes with house made dough, cheese and sauce with prosciutto and baby arugula. Part of the pizza crust is stuffed with a garlic-ricotta filling. It is by far heavenly. I sat on the patio with my pup. He was provided with water and plw ty of pets and hellos by everyone. It was a bit chilly out but they had plenty of heaters going. The staff is welcoming and very knowledgeable on all ingredients. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Best patio for Dogs!!Hunters Chophouse
Hunter's was more than welcoming with my pooch and I. Their patio is completely fenced in and all the staff was excited to meet my dog. The owner was hospitable and ensured a great time for both my dog and I. Food was outstanding and an awesome selection of different meats and game. It was by far my favorite lunch/dinner spot in Estes Park!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
One of the few dog friendly places in Estes Park!Notchtop Bakery & Cafe
It's unfortunate not a ton of places allow dogs on their patio, but Notchtop does! It's a bit small, but very welcoming. Food was outstanding. It's located in a strip mall-like complex and there is a pet store nearby.
Lots of running room!Estes Valley Dog Park
Great park - just off of 36 and right by Lake Estes. My dog enjoyed being able to run and burn some energy on our road trip. I lived the little obstacle course too! Great views and good location. All fenced in and a separate area for small dogs. Great spot!
Dogs allowed inside!Josiah's Coffeehouse & Cafe
Amazing place. Very friendly and welcoming tondogs indoors and on the patio. Food is incredible as well!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
