where the first shots of the American Revolutionary War were fired is now a
beautiful and tourist-friendly town offering a range of cultural and historic facilities and a charming downtown area bustling with shops and local businesses. Dog owners will love the challenging walking trails passing through
the city, as well as the dog parks and three veterinary hospitals located here. You can find two more vet practices just a short drive away in Burlington.
If you are
looking to enjoy the great outdoors with your pooch, feel free to explore the 10-mile rail-trail
running through suburban Boston from West Cambridge to South Road in
Bedford. Minuteman Bikeway passes through Lexington and is
considered one of the most pawpular places to visit during the summer. Don't forget to pay a visit to the beautiful Arlington Reservoir, where leashed pups are welcome in the park and near the water during the off-season.
Finding a good dog-friendly restaurant or café will not be a problem in Lexington. Downtown’s eateries are open to tail-waggers year-round, offering the
comfort of outdoor tables and a variety of tasty treats. Bertucci's is a great
choice, and serves delicious entrees like sautéed chicken piccata. Your pup will even get a complementary water bowl here!
