Are you looking for a tropical vacation destination? Look no further than Port Saint Joe, FL, located on the west coast of Florida, near the panhandle. This pet-friendly city is the pawfect place for you and your favorite furry friend to have some fun in the sun. 

Port Saint Joe is a small, coastal city, but there's a dedicated veterinarian conveniently located in the center of town. Plus, you can pick up all of your supplies at the Bow Wow Beach Shop – a unique shop where you can pick up pet necessities as well as fun beach supplies for you both! Once you have stocked up, head over to Salinas Park, which is adjacent to a beach that allows pups to join the rest of the family, provided they stay safely leashed. The area is a popular spot for equestrians as well, so you might have some company while out there!

If you prefer to be further out, schedule a trip with Seahorse Water Safaris, where your precious pooch can strap on a life jacket and join you on the boat.
