Despite its name, Monroe City is a tiny town, so it will be hard to find things to do with your dog within the town limits. And, by tiny, we do mean tiny -- Monroe City only covers about a quarter of a square mile! There's not a whole lot to do here, apart from walking the quiet country lanes with your leashed pup. Apart from that, you and your pooch will be doing a lot of relaxing in this rural area which fewer than 600 people call home.
If you're in Monroe City and you have a pooch in tow, you'll be happy to know that dog-friendly fun is never far away! Monroe City is located conveniently within a short drive to larger areas, including Washington, which is the home of the Impressed Coffee Shop. This cafe allows you to bring your pup with you for a cup of coffee and a muffin. Don't forget your laptop to take advantage of the free wi-fi!
Need an adventure in nature with your best pup pal? Hop in the car and head about 40 minutes south to Columbia Mine Preserve. This natural area offers over 1,000 acres of preserved wilderness for you to explore. This is a protected area, so you'll need to keep your pup on a leash and clean up after him to protect the wildlife here.
