A little more than 5,000 people call Angier, a town in the Black River Township of Harnett County in North Carolina their home. Each year, more than 20,000 people come to the town to experience the Crepe Myrtle Festival, which celebrates a special type of tree that is common in the area. Angier is also well-known for its family-friendly Bike Fest event each year that brings in motorcyclists and bike enthusiasts from all over the country.
Whether you're visiting Angier with your dog or you live there year-round, stop by Jack Marley Park. This 33.3-acre park has a six-acre lake, and it's a lovely place to go for an on-leash walk with your dog in Angier.
Other dog-friendly activities in Angier include stopping by Texas Pit BBQ on West Church Street. This popular family restaurant serves all sorts of beef brisket, pulled pork, smoked turkey, German sausage, and other delicious dishes that are smoked with mesquite wood shipped in right from Texas. You can also dine on sides like hush puppies, Texas pinto beans, corn pudding, mac and cheese, and collard greens. There are several outdoor tables at Texas Pit BBQ where your dog can join you. After your meal, you and your dog can make the short drive to one of several nearby off-leash parks to run off those extra calories!
