Dog Areas in Mount Rainier

1 Eatery

Mount Rainier, Maryland is only four miles from downtown Washington, D.C., but this town of around 8,500 stands its own ground. Mount Rainier was named in 1891 by developers after the famous mountain in Washington. Due in part to its history as a streetcar suburb and several unique Craftsman-style homes, many parts of Mount Rainier are listed as historic areas. With a vibrant arts district, charming residential neighborhoods, and a pedestrian-friendly layout, Mount Rainier is a lovely place to live with your family, including, of course, your four-legged family members.

Mount Rainier is not only a dog-friendly town, but it has a reputation for being a very vegetarian-friendly place to live as well, and one restaurant in central Mount Rainier is proof of that. Sweet and Natural is a 100% vegan restaurant that focuses on using the best and most natural ingredients possible, and their menu changes every day. Their dishes include vegan cheesesteaks, veggie fried fish, vegan meatloaf, and all-day brunch on weekends. There is also an outdoor table at Sweet and Natural so Rover can join you for a meal there, too! You and your dog are going to have so much fun in Mount Rainier getting to know what makes it so unique.
