If you have your dog with you…

  • Dog friendly beaches: There are TWO drive on beaches that allow dogs during the day Freeman Park and Fort Fisher. If you don’t own a vehicle that can drive on the beach you can go to the non-drive on section of Fort Fisher State Park and they allow dogs all day!
  • Restaurants that are dog-friendly: Lazy Pirate, Havanas, HopLite, Island Hots, Saint’s Cove, SeaWitch, and Big Daddy’s Seafood.
  • Parks: Carolina Beach State Park is a wonderful trail to walk on even if you don’t have a dog. Or take your dog to the Gurney Hood Barking Lot, an off-leash dog park located in Joe Eakes Park off of Dow.  Or if you want to venture over to Midtown Wilmington you can go to Hugh Macrae Park.
