Quaint, coastal and chock full of New England charm, Westport Point, MA has a history that predates the United States itself. The area was settled in the early 1700s, and the town grew quickly into a shipbuilding hub. Westport Point had its part to play in the Revolutionary War, too -- the coves and inlets surrounding the settlement made the harbor a perfect base for privateers. 

Of course, wooden shipbuilding was on the way out, and by the mid-1800s, Westport Point was a thriving resort town. It’s easy to see why tourists flocked here -- the town is surrounded by some of the most breathtaking scenery that Massachusetts has to offer, both land and sea. Not only that, but Westport Point itself is beautiful, with a historic downtown full of painstakingly preserved buildings in the Greek Revivalist style, and its waterfront houses and flower-lined stone walls just add to the postcard-perfect picture.

There’s no dog park in Westport Point, but that doesn’t mean that you and your buddy are bound to be bored! The town is close by to some fantastically fur-friendly hiking routes, and a couple of beaches in the area welcome wagging tails with open arms. And if your furry friend needs to run free, don’t fret -- you’ll find some pawesome dog parks a little further afield!

With Horseneck Beach State Reservation just across the harbor from you in Westport Point, you’d need to be barking mad not to check it out! Your pup is welcome to walk with you on the two-mile, sandy stretch -- but only in the off-season. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, you two will need to explore elsewhere -- try the tree-lined trails on Gooseberry Island. There’s a smaller beach on the island, too, and it’s usually quieter than Horseneck. Leashed pooches are allowed in the water as well as on the strand, so you might want to bring a longline if your pup likes to swim!

The modern town of Westport grew out of the historic settlement of Westport Point, and its citizens take land conservation seriously. The Westport Land Conservation Trust is charged with preserving diverse sections of the area’s landscape, from forest to farmland to sea. You and your pooch will get a taste of nearly everything at Dunham’s Brook Conservation Area! The furrific three-mile trail runs through meadows, cornfields and oak and holly forest, and the preserve is full of frogs, birds, and deer -- so you might want to keep a tight leash on your little tearaway! Remember to bring water, as well as some bags to keep this beautiful preserve clean.

Make no bones about it -- if your buddy likes hiking, a trip to Lloyd’s Center for the Environment in South Dartmouth is sure to leave them one happy hound! On the banks of the serene Slocum River, the center has miles and miles of diversely forested trails to sniff and explore, as well as some snaking by salt marshes and past ruins of old farms. That’s not the best part, though -- before 10 am and after 3 pm, pooches are allowed to sniff and explore all the trails off-leash! Be sure to look up a map before you go!

If you and your fur-baby feel more secure frolicking in a fenced area, consider heading up to Fall River and checking out Joe Silva Memorial Dog Park. Located in the town’s dynamic, university-adjacent Highlands neighborhood, this park is the pawfect place to let your pal loose. There’s enough room here for even the most hyperactive hound dog to burn off some excess energy, and there’s a separate small dog area, too, so your pup can play and socialize no matter their size. Bags and water are provided, so all you need to do is BYOB (Bring your Own Beast)!

Look for something different to do with your doggo? Why not drive over to Downtown New Bedford and take in a tour of the Historic New Bedford Whaling District? The free walking tour leaves from the visitors center at New Bedford Whaling National Park and takes participants through a century-spanning selection of true stories of the sea. Literature buffs will be glad to know that the tour features the Seaman’s Bethel, immortalized by Herman Melville in Moby Dick. Afterward, you and your pooch can chow down at Tia Maria’s European Cafe, which serves up the best in Old World Cuisine and caters to canines outside.
