Palm Coast is really popular in the summer, and even in winter, thanks to the high temps year round in this Florida town. This beachside city is a central point between Orlando and Jacksonville, and is just 30 miles from Daytona Beach, providing tourists with a great resting stop and residents with an even greater experience for daily life. This also includes pups, since the small town is super dog-friendly, including the city's parks, beaches, and trails.
The Washinton Oaks Gardens State Park is the closest state park in the area, and sits on the northern edge of town. The 230-acre state park is dog-friendly with over 7 miles of trails, 3 miles of shoreline access, and natural wildlife among the gardens and large oak trees. Dogs are welcome on the beach, in the streams, and in the open area, but be sure to bring plenty of water!
The Old Salt Park is right on the beach, with plenty of open fields and beach access. Although the beach is a bit rocky, there are plenty of safe spots for you and Fido to enjoy the water and look for passing whales. There are benches and trash bins in the parking area.
The city also offers up the River to Sea Preserve, a natural area with dog-friendly trails for humans and pups.
With seven different animal hospitals, beach access, and lots of natural areas to explore, how can you and fido not love walking in Palm Coast?
