    #2 Columbia


    Columbia is a short half-hour drive from New Athens and has several dog-friendly activities you can enjoy together! Situated along the Mississippi River, you and your on-leash dog can take a stroll along the banks, taking in the views. Please be cautious not to get too close to the river as this is a fast-moving body of water. For a nice lunch or dinner outing with your pooch, consider taking them to Who Dat’s, a New Orleans style restaurant, or Reifschneider’s Grill & Grape, both of which cater to our four-legged friends!
