Quaint, family-friendly, and chock full of stately New England charm, Rehoboth, MA has a long and storied history. The town was founded way back in the early seventeenth century, and it’s home to many historical sites, including 53 cemeteries! Rehoboth is also known as the birthplace of American public education -- early settlers here pooled money to build a schoolhouse and hire a teacher for all students, regardless of income or background. There are several, mostly volunteer-run museums in town, but Rehoboth’s dedication to preserving its heritage is just one sign of the town’s strong community spirit. Evidence of the citizens’ civic pride is everywhere, from the large variety of small local businesses to the organization of the Summer Rock Fest.
There’s no dog park in Rehoboth, but that doesn’t mean you and your pooch should get all "melan-collie"! The town has a couple of pawesome community parks that are ideal for leashed walks, and you’ll find some fabulously fur-friendly hiking options right on your doorstep. Rehoboth may be small, but there’s certainly room for a veterinary clinic, and emergency services are available in nearby Seekonk. And if your furry friend needs to run free, don’t fret -- you’ll find plenty of off-leash adventure options a little further afield!
