Located in York County, Maine, it’s easy to see why dog lovers would want to spend their time in the city of York itself. With a number of dog friendly restaurants to choose from, two beaches, a park, and a hiking trail for you and your canine companion to choose from, the options are nearly limitless. Want to start a day with a nice romp through the sandy beaches and rolling tides? Make your way to Short Sands Beach, one of the more scenic locations you have to choose from in York, and your dog is bound to enjoy the early morning breeze while the two of you walk, leash in hand, from one end of the beach to the other. Your precious pup will be especially welcome any time in the off season, but as long as you keep them on a leash, you’re bound to have loads of fun. Just bring plenty of fresh drinking water, as well as doggy waste bags to pick up after your precious pup. Maybe even bring a picnic along with plenty of tasty treats for you and Fido to fawn over. You’re sure to have a real ball, a tennis ball that is!
