Metropolis is a sprawling little city nestled on the shores of the Ohio River. Better known for being the official "Hometown of Superman," Metropolis unites comic fans and history buffs from all over to enjoy celebrating this Superman-themed city. Two super veterinarians will be happy to welcome your pup to their clinics in case Fido catches the flu while you're in town.

Mutt-ropolis is a furtastic city not only for its super heroes, but for its super doggoes, too! Venture outside with Fido for a wooftacular time exploring the grand Fort Massac State Park in Metropolis. Famed for being Illinois' first State Park, Fort Massac offers residents and travelers alike to dive into the rich history of the region. Take Fido for an educative stroll around the park to read the informative plaques and tour around the preserved replica of the fort (doggoes not allowed inside buildings or visitors center). Lots of hiking trails and pawpular camping spots are open to the public, but it's best to reserve in advance. Before leaving, make sure to walk alongside the majestic Ohio River flowing past the park.

When in Metropolis, you and Fido will need to stay overnight in order to check off your super list of things to do and see. For that, reserve a pup-friendly room at the Holiday Inn Express Metropolis located at the northern edge of Fort Massac. 

Lois Lane and Superman are waiting for your visit to Mutt-ropolis!

Two sections divide up the park based on weight of over/under 35 lbs.
