Eccentric yet rooted in tradition, laid-back yet proud -- it’s no wonder that Abita Springs, LA was voted one of America’s fifty best small towns to visit! The small town is perhaps best known for its spring water, as well as the brewery that based its brand on it. There’s far more to Abita Springs than brooks and beer, though -- the town is well known for its art galleries, murals and overall cultural scene. Abita Springs hosts regular art and farmer’s markets, and the area is also home to the Abita Springs Opry, a festival dedicated to preserving traditional Louisiana Roots music, and the wonderfully weird UCM ("you-see-’em") Museum. Your buddy might want to pop in and meet Darrell, the half-alligator, half-dog "dogigator", while you can say hello to Edmond, the half-human, half-alligator "allisapiens".
There’s no designated dog park in Abita Springs, but you and your pooch are still sure to sniff out something to do! The town is famous for its bicycle trails, most of which also welcome walkers. If you and your four-pawed friend pal prefer a walk in the wilderness, you’re in luck -- Abita Springs is close by some furrifically fur-friendly hiking options. And if your doggo longs to lose the leash, don’t worry -- you’ll find some pawesome dog parks a short drive away!
