Saint Simons Island, locally known as "The Island" or St. Simons, is a place that gets plenty of visitors for its warm weather, sandy beaches, restaurants, and historic sites! The best part? The whole island is extremely dog-friendly! Throughout the island, you'll find more than 20 restaurants, cafes, and pubs that will allow you to bring your dog with you to chow down.
When it comes to dog-friendly accommodations, you can find plenty of those as well -- more than 30 places where your dog is welcome to curl up next to you, in fact. Saint Simons Island offers a variety of lodging options, from cottages and condos to chain hotels.
The island has two animal hospitals that will be able to provide emergency care in case your pup needs it, as well as a couple of other veterinary services. If you need to restock on some doggie supplies while you're here -- whether it's food, toys, treats, or apparel -- just visit the Island Dog Pet Store, where you can find anything you need!
While you're on the island, you should visit the famous Fort Frederica National Monument, built in 1736. You should also stop by St. Simons Island Light, a scenic, historic lighthouse that's a pawpular venue for weddings and other events. Dogs aren't allowed inside the museum, but they're more than welcome to sniff around the grounds as long as they're leashed.
