Dog Walking in Thunderbolt

The town of Thunderbolt, Georgia is located about five miles southeast of Savannah. Although Thunderbolt is small, it has a mighty reputation amongst seafood fans; the town is known for having plenty of mouthwatering seafood restaurants. While there’s plenty to do in Thunderbolt, a lot of the local recreation is based by the Wilmington River. Residents love spending a lazy Saturday out on the dock, waiting to feel that familiar tug on their fishing rods.

Fido might get a bit bored waiting for the fish to bite, but that’s no problem! Thunderbolt is home to two dog-friendly eateries, Tortuga’s Island Grill and Tubby’s Tank House. Your dog is welcome to dine outside with you. Although the town doesn’t have a dog park, with Savannah just up the road, fun with Fido is just a short drive away from Thunderbolt. Unfortunately, the town doesn’t have a veterinarian clinic, so if you need care for a sick or injured pet, you’ll want to take him to Savannah or the nearby town of Talahi Island.

Thunderbolt is a beautiful town with some gorgeous views of the Wilmington River, and if you don’t mind making a quick trip up the road, the town is also perfect for your four-legged family members.

What would a visit to Savannah be if you didn’t take a ghost tour? Historic District North has plenty of options, including Blue Orb Ghost Tours and Savannah Terrors.

You’ll also want to be sure to bring along waste disposal bags for easy clean-up.
