Venice began as a beach resort town in 1905, and it has since blossomed into a cultural hub with a world-renowned beach (which includes the famous Muscle Beach!) complete with some of the best surfing waves out there, an ultra-fun boardwalk, and a system of man-made canals. Your pooch can join you for a walk on the boardwalk and on certain parts of Venice Beach, but there is plenty for you to do with your dog in other parts of Venice as well.
Venice is home to over 18 restaurants that allow you to eat on their patios with your dog, and let's face it, with the amazing weather in California, who would want to eat inside anyway? Among these restaurants is the French Market Cafe, an adorable little restaurant along historic Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Here, your dog can join you on their patio while you dive into their extensive breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu.
When you’ve spent your day at the beach or trying out local restaurants and you’re ready to try something new with your dog, check out Bruno’s Cat and Dog Boutique, a pet supply shop with high-quality pet food and sniff-tastic toys and treats. Whether you spend your time on a patio, a beach, on the boardwalk, or shopping with your pup, Venice will astound you with all it has to offer you and Fido!
