St. Augustine Pet-Friendly Hotels: Things to Do with Dogs In Town

While staying at the St. Francis Inn—one of the best St. Augustine pet-friendly hotels—will be a highlight of your time traveling with your pets, there’s no shortage of dog-friendly things to do in St. Augustine. From long walks on the beach and rounds of fetch to outdoor patios with pet-friendly seating and trolley tours, you’ll find plenty to do when you bring Fido along for the ride. 

Here are the best things to do in St. Augustine with dogs: 

  1. Bring Your Dog to the Beach: Enjoy a great selection of beaches with your pup! While dogs are still expected to be on leashes, you’ll love taking long strolls on the sandy shore and letting your furry friend hop in and out of the waves. Anastasia State Park offers stunning dunes and sandy shorelines, Vilano Beach is a favorite for dog lovers, and Frank B. Butler County Park is often less populated, perfect for enjoying with your pooch. 
  2. Take a Scenic Crusie of St. Augustine: A few local cruise companies also welcome your four-legged friends aboard! Look into the popular St. Augustine Eco Tours, as well as the Scenic Cruise of St. Augustine. These captain-narrated tours are such a lovely way to get out on the water and take in the stunning coastline. 
  3. Enjoy a Train or Trolley Tour: One of the best ways to explore St. Augustine is on the trolley tours of the area. Another reason our inn is one of the best St. Augustine pet-friendly hotels is that we’re right near these trolley pick-up and drop-off stops. Look into Old Town Trolley Tours, Red Train Tours, and even the spooky Ghostly Encounter Tours
  4. Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park: Discover the site where St. Augustine began in 1565 with your furry friend at this landmark. With over 15 dog-friendly waterfront acres, you and your pup can enjoy a range of activities. You can explore the planetarium, visit the Timucua Indian village, take in the stunning views from the 600-foot observation deck, and befriend the resident peacocks.
  5. Dog-Friendly Dining & Drinks: Of course, you’ll find plenty of outdoor seating in St.Augustine, and many establishments offer pet-friendly options. Favorites are the St. Augustine Distillery, San Sebastian Winery, City Gate Spirits, and more. As a guest checking into one of the best St. Augustine pet-friendly hotels, we’ll also provide a list of our favorite restaurants in the area that welcome your pets. 

As a guest at the St. Francis Inn, you’ll quickly see the main reason we’re one of the best St. Augustine pet-friendly hotels is our staff! They’re all animal lovers and have great tips and tricks for enjoying the city with pets in tow.
