Cats are very popular in Maine, and there are evidently a lot of felines present in Scarborough, Maine. The little beach town is, however, also a great place to visit or live with dogs. The city of Scarborough, unlike most cities, does not require dogs to be leashed as long as they respond to voice commands. It is, of course, advisable to keep a leash on you at all times for emergency purposes.

Because of this law, the entire city of Scarborough, Maine, is an off-leash area. However, it is not appreciated if dogs run wild through the town center. There are luckily plenty of suitable areas to walk your dogs. Scarborough is, for instance, connected to the Eastern Trail. This 65-mile route from Casco Bay to the Piscataqua River offers many off-road trails for equestrians, hikers, bird watchers and dog owners to enjoy.

Another option is Hinckley Park, located in South Portland and thus only a small commute from Scarborough, Maine. This massive, 40-acre park is widely appreciated by nature enthusiasts and outdoorsy people. The park offers a mixed terrain; there are meadows for ball games, two ponds for swimming and plenty of trails for exploring and sniffing.

There are a large amount of pet-friendly lodging options as Scarborough, Maine, is a resort town. There are chain hotels such as the Residence Inn and Extended Stay America, local hotels, camping grounds and even beach houses.
