The small town of Cuba recalls those days past when cars whizzed along the famous Route 66. Many of the memorabilia of those days can be found here in Cuba. The town of less than four thousand has many attractions and places to visit for a person with a canine family member. Two veterinary clinics within the city limits provide most kinds of veterinary care.
The city has three public parks with green areas for a person and a leashed dog to explore. Hood Park is the town's largest park with plenty of green spaces, mature trees, a playground, and a walking path. A small pond is a prime spot for some fishing, too.
Downtown Cuba features twelve outdoor murals which depict natural scenes and historical icons, like Missouri-born President Harry Truman and national heroes like famed aviator Amelia Earhart. A walk along the sidewalks of Cuba is like visiting an art museum with your canine pal at your side. The Chamber of Commerce provides brochures to assist you in your art adventure.
Nearby, Meramec Valley Campground is a privately-owned ground for camping, hiking, fishing and enjoying Missouri outdoors. Meramec Valley operates year-round and offers both daily campsites and member resort amenities. This campground welcomes dogs as long as they stay on leash.
Although Route 66 traffic doesn't stop in Cuba much anymore, there remain many good reasons to visit this dog-friendly place.
