3 Ways to Entertain Fido on Your Next Vacation

1. Get Outdoors

Nobody likes being confined to their room! Take your pup to the 8th Avenue dog beach in Asbury Park to romp and play from 6 p.m. to 8:30 a.m. Or, visit Thompson Park in Lincroft, NJ. The 1.5-acre, off-leash area is a great place to release some energy. It even has a section for dogs over 35 lbs. and a separate area for small dogs that weigh under 35 lbs.

2. Attend Yappy Hour

Asbury Park’s famous Wonder Bar hosts a fun, dog-friendly “Yappy Hour” every day of the week. Head to the fenced-in area where you’ll find swimming pools, an agility course, and a special “time out” spot for those who need to unwind. You’ll love watching your four-legged friend run around while you sip a cocktail!

3. Dine at Dog-Friendly Restaurants

A number of Jersey Shore restaurants have tables outside where you can enjoy your meal with your furry friend at your feet. Some of our favorite eateries include:

  • Nagles | Main Avenue, Ocean Grove
  • Seagrass Restaurant | Main Avenue, Ocean Grove
  • Brickwall Tavern | Cookman Avenue, Asbury Park
  • Pop’s Garage | Asbury Park Boardwalk
  • Bamboo Leaf | Main Street, Bradley Beach
  • … And many more!
