What to Do With Your Pets During an Atlantic Beach Vacation

Making arrangements for your pet while you’re away can add tons of stress to your vacation. Worrying about a sitter or boarding location may make it hard to focus on relaxing. Luckily, Atlantic Beach and the surrounding areas are great for bringing your four-legged friend along for the ride! There are tons of things for you to enjoy with your pet on the Crystal Coast, and we have plenty of Atlantic Beach vacation rentals that are pet-friendly, so you don’t have to miss a minute of fun.

Where to Go For A Walk

It’s no secret that dogs want to walk any chance they can get. Atlantic Beach has several pet-friendly locations to get some exercise in. Throughout Atlantic Beach, dogs are allowed as long as they are on a leash, making it easy for you to run with your pet or let them enjoy the sand. Our beachfront condos on Atlantic Beach let you head to the water in an instant!

You can also take a short trip down the coast to Emerald Isle and visit Emerald Isle Beach, a popular destination for locals and visitors alike, as well as their furry friends. It’s not uncommon to see leashed pets strolling up and down the beach with their owners, soaking up the sun and splashing in the water.

Other Pet-Friendly Activities

Other than the beaches, there are plenty of other pet-friendly activities in Atlantic Beach. If you’re looking for a little history, make your way to Fort Macon State Park, which offers trails, historical exhibits, beaches, and various events throughout the year. Dogs are allowed here as long as they are leashed, but they may not enter any of the buildings on site. This free space is open daily from 9 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.

Why not let your dog be pampered a little while you’re on vacation? Hugs and Kisses Grooming Palace in nearby Newport is the perfect spot to get your pet a makeover. Give your furry friend the ultimate spa experience and return to find a satisfied pup! This is also a great option if you want to stop somewhere that does not allow pets. You’ll know they are safe and happy while you get in some fun, too!

Where to Eat

Long days in the sun will build up an appetite in both you and your pet. Luckily, the Atlantic Beach area is full of restaurants with outdoor seating that will accommodate your pet. One such location is Michaelangelo’s Pizza, where you’ll find all the classic Italian offerings like pasta, calzones, and, of course, pizza!

Another fun spot for a bite is Tight Lines Pub and Brewing Company, which offers a beer garden perfect for your pet. Enjoy burgers, seafood, and more alongside your brew, and spend a casual evening with your crew. Tight Lines suffered some damage from Hurricane Florence, so be sure to come out and support their return to business!

Where to Stay

Unwind with your group and your pet in any one of our luxurious pet-friendly rental options. You and your four-legged friend will have plenty of room, and you can enjoy other amenities like a full kitchen, magnificent views, and prime locations near all the best attractions. Whether your group is big or small, we have a property to suit your needs.
