Dog Walking in Winthrop Harbor

Sitting along Lake Michigan and home to one of the largest marinas on the Great Lakes, Winthrop Harbor is a lovely village to be at with your furry pal. Although the village is small, it is still a huge tourist destination due to the marina and being so close to the lake. There is one veterinarian in Winthrop Harbor where your four-legged friend can get a health check-up. 

Village Park is a great park to spend the day at with your dog by your side. The park has pawsome amenities, like a picnic area, gazebo for shade, two picnic shelters, playground, and baseball diamonds. There is a pond in the park that you and Fido can walk around and enjoy, as well as a tennis court, basketball court, and the entire park offers lights throughout it. 

If there is a rumble in your stomach, head over to The Tropics for a bite to eat. This waterfront restaurant has a menu with an array of options like salads, burgers, pizza, and seafood options. Their huge outdoor patio is perfect to sit on with your dog, and offers a beautiful view of the marina and the lake.
