has a lot of historic sights to visit and your dog can visit a number
of them with you. It is a very pet-friendly town and the downtown area
offers a lot for you and your dog to explore. There are
historical sites throughout the Boston area that make great visits for
you and your dog. And nearby Cape Cod, Rhode Island, and Maine offer
additional pet-friendly places to visit on your trip to the Boston
area. Boston used to restrict
pit bull and pit bull mixes but have,
fortunately, repealed those laws recently.
that welcome you and your dog are plentiful in Boston. The Taj Boston,
Nine Zero, Marlowe and a number of Sheratons welcome your dog with
special pet amenities and service. Other pet-friendly hotels include
the Hyatt Regency Boston, Hyatt Regency Cambridge, the Eliot
Hotel and hotels from all of the major hotel chains. There are also a
large number of pet-friendly hotels in the Boston suburbs from many of
the hotel chains.
Getting around Boston with your dog is about as simple as it gets for a
large American city. This is because your leashed dog as well as a
carried dog is allowed on the Boston
T, or subway. They are also
allowed on the city buses and on the
commuter trains to the suburbs and ferries meaning that whereever you
can go by public transportation you may also bring your dog. This is
the most pet-friendly trainsportation system in the United States for
dogs. And it's not even close. And where can you go with your dog? There
is a lot to do.
If boats are your thing, then try the Boston Harbor Cruises or the Bay
State Cruise Company. The ferries also allowed leashed pets. Most
people heading to visit Boston want to see the historical sites as
well. The two mile Freedom Trail takes you on a self-guided walking
tour of many of Boston's historical sites. The Old North Church, the
Boston Commons and Fanuiel Hall are amoung the sites visited on the
route marked by a painted line on the sidewalk. You can see the outside
entrance to the famous bar that served as the model for the TV show
Cheers. In the Boston area, your dog will love Minute Man National
Historical Park, with miles of walking trails with historical sites
along the way. We highly recommend a trip to Salem, of witching fame.
You and your dog can get to Salem from Boston on the commuter train or
the ferry. Once there, explore Salem via a self-guided walking tour,
the Salem Trolley and a ghost tour (or witch tour, here). If you have a
kid with you the Salem Willows Amusement Park is a great destination
As far as
parks and walking is concerned,
for your dog Boston is a paradise.
The Freedom Trail, Minuteman Park and the Salem Walking Tour
you walks through history. The large Boston Common, America's oldest
city park, is very dog-friendly. Dogs must be leashed most of
time but there are select hours in the early mornings and late evenings
where dogs are allowed off-leash in parts of the park. The
Arboretum and Dogtown Commons are also great places to walk a dog. If
you want a dog beach, try Carson Beach at I-93 and William Day
Blvd. There are a few fenced off-leash dog parks around town
off-leash play. There are dog-friendly patio restaurants throughout the
Day trips and nearby getaways are plentiful for visitors and residents
of Boston. Here is a partial list of dog-friendly New England
destinations - Cape
and Bar Harbor Maine, the White
Mountains of New Hampshire and Portland
Maine. For your New England dog,
you will not run out of things to
