San Pedro is a borough in LA and a real retreat from the busy city feel of downtown. It's also a great place for you and your wag-tailed tag-along to sample that relaxed Californian way of life. San Pedro only has one pet-friendly hotel,The Doubletree by Hilton San Pedro, but this one is something special as it overlooks the ocean and has great amenities. Although more expensive than some budget alternatives, this place is rated highly among locals and vacationers alike. Note that The Doubletree by Hilton charges a pet fee, and only allows one small dog to stay per guest.
One of the main pupular attractions in sunny San Pedro is Knoll Hill Dog Park. This park is a well-organized place for your canine crazy to blow off a little steam. Point Fermin Park is around an 8-minute drive from San Pedro and has spectacular ocean views, beautifully kept grassy areas, and picnic benches for you to chill with Chewy. Kite flying is particularly popular here, as is picnicking, so best keep ahold of that leash!
San Pedro has a few furrific parks where you and Fido can spend some quality time together, but you can find even more dog-friendly fun just a short drive out of town.
This scenic spot, located just over 15 minutes from San Pedro, really is the place to be with your wag-tailed wonder! Not only are there 4 dog-friendly parks to chews from, but there’s also 5 dog-friendly restaurants and a beautiful (but a little high-end) hotel with no additional fees or restrictions for canine guests. There are 5 vacation rentals that welcome your happy hounds, and there’s even an off-leash dog park: Rancho Caninos Dog Park. It is worth noting that a strict on-leash policy exists at the 155-acre Forrestal Nature Reserve and the 55-acre Alta Vicente Reserve. This is for your own protection, as snakes are a common sight. The leash rules are strictly enforced by a park ranger.
