For dog owners in the Atlantic Beach, FL, Atlantic Beach S/D is a pawtastic neighborhood. You and your pup are welcome to enjoy a refreshing walk on the beach together. Canine pals are to be on a leash no longer than 12 feet long, unless you and your pooch are in the water together. Fido can be set free to manage the water while swimming with you or another adult. As soon as you’re out of the surf, be sure to leash back up. After a day at the beach, take a stroll down Atlantic Blvd and enjoy a burger or salad at Poe’s Tavern or at M Shack. If you prefer Italian fare, grab an outdoor table at Joseph’s Pizza on Ocean Blvd.
