About 30 miles out from Cape Cod in Massachusetts, you'll see through the fog a small dark island in the distance, known as The Little Grey Lady of the Sea. This is just a nickname for the island though, as it's really Nantucket Island, home to the town of Nantucket. In the off season, the town holds about 10,000 people, but during the summer months, the population swells to nearly 50,000 with vacationers.
With such a significant increase in population, it's no wonder the place turned out to be such a dog-friendly place to come. One spot that your pup will just love is the Dionis Beach. This beach is at the central northern part of the island and is very dog-friendly. Dogs must remain on their leash, but can frolic in the sand or swim in the open water.
The town boasts 8 different dog-friendly restaurants, including The Jetties, the Easy Street Cantina, and the Atlas. While they may vary in cuisine, all three offer dog-friendly outdoor seating, perfect for those easy summer nights by the water. The town also has three animal hospitals to cater to all the resident, or visiting, pups' needs, proving that you and your dog will feel right at home in Nantucket.
