Oak Brook, IL is nestled about 20 miles off the coast, acting as a suburb of the major city of Chicago. The town takes up about 8 square miles of land, and is home to almost 8,000 residents. Although small, Oak Brook has been a great place to flock for avid dog lovers since 1958.

Although a suburb, a lot of the town's space is taken up by woods. One patch of woods is called Fullersburg Woods and hosts over 6 miles of dog-friendly trails. What makes this place even better for pups, is the abundance of benches, trash bins, water fountains and a clean-up station at the visitor center for the dogs. Dogs are allowed throughout the park, but as long as they remain on a leash and owners must clean up after their dogs.

After a good run or walk, head over to Stir Crazy Cafe, a dog-friendly venue with outdoor seating for you and Fido. With comfortable seating and free water for your dog, you can also enjoy their pan-Asian course.

These aren't the only options to be found around Oak Brook, and with 2 veterinarian clinics in town, what kind of dog lover wouldn't love Oak Bark, Illinois?
