From good music to delicious food, New Orleans has it all. The city is a popular tourist destination, with millions of visitors passing through each year. Whether you are going for Bourbon Street’s nightlife or for a steamboat tour, you and your pup are guaranteed to have a hopping good time.
The 1,300 acre City Park is one of the country’s oldest parks and has been around since 1854. Stop by to smell the roses, or take a walk along the various paths that wind through the open spaces. Leashed dogs are welcome here, so you and the furry companion can both get a breath of fresh air.
Nearby, the NOLA City Bark provides a chance for dogs to run off-leash. This 4.6-acre park has separate areas for small and large dogs, as well as a walking trail, shaded pavilions, and small pools for canine swimmers. Permits are required in order to ensure that all dogs are vaccinated and fixed, with fees going back towards maintaining the park.
If you're more interested in the food scene, the French Quarter is a must see. This famous neighborhood is pet-friendly and has many dining establishments where your pup can also sit in. It’s home to beautiful architecture, live music, and some of the best food you and your dog will ever eat.
Bywater is a lovely residential neighborhood located just east of New Orleans’ historic French Quarter.

Make a pit stop in Crescent Park, which features groomed walkways and plenty of green space to stop and take a load off your paws. After you’ve built up an appetite, head to the east end of the pathway for a selection of restaurants that feature dog-friendly patio seating. You and Fido will enjoy a barking good time just a short distance from the glitz and glamour of historic New Orleans.
