The dog-friendly community of Saint Mary’s is located along the Florida-Georgia state line, and is only 30 miles from Dyal! The Tommy Casey Memorial Dog Park is a fun place to bring your pooch to have some off-leash fun in a securely fenced-in area. The park also provides an agility course, benches, shade trees and water. There are several restaurants and hotels in Saint Mary’s that accommodate Man’s Best Friend, including McGarvey’s Wee Pub, The Green Room Sicilian Café and Deli, and Larry’s Giant Subs. The Cumberland Island Inn & Suites, Cumberland Kings Bay Lodges, and Mariners Suites are the dog-friendly hotels in the area.
Thirty miles east of Dyal, the very dog-friendly coastal community of Fernandina Beach provides gorgeous views and plenty of dining and entertainment! Amelia River Cruises & Charters provides a variety of fun cruises that allow leashed dogs to tag along for the ride. The Old Towne Carriage Company offers relaxing horse-drawn carriage tours around the city, and the best part is your fur baby can come (as long as they are well-behaved) to take in the sights of the city! If your canine companion has worked up an appetite or just needs to be spoiled, Redbones Gourmet Dog Bakery and Boutique specialize in making tasty handmade dog treats and upscale boutique accessories.
