Five friendly vets and animal hospitals are on call in case your pup needs medical attention or just a check-up while you’re in town.
Arden isn’t a toursity hot spot like it's ever-so-popular neighbor of Asheville. Nonetheless, you might’ve heard about one place which effectively put Arden on the map. Does 12 Bones Smokehouse ring a bell? Ever since the Obama family chose 12 Bones as their go-to North Carolina BBQ joint, 12 Bones Smokehouse has seen a wild increase in pawpularity, and after tasting their local ‘cue, it’s no mystery why. Your pup is welcome to dig in to a plate of smoky pulled meat and ribs with you on their outdoor patio!
Arden is more than just it’s smoked meats and hip new restaurants, though. Take Fido for a stroll around the Lake Julian Park for a furtastic day out playing at the horseshoe pits, disc-golf course, and more. Boat rentals are also available for extra adventurous pups.
