Columbus is a small town located in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. With the stunning mountains, hiking trails, and even the House of Flags Museum, it's no wonder you and your furry friend decided to come and visit Columbus. Home to nine veterinarians that Fido can get a health check at, you don't have to worry about anything when you're chilling in Columbus with your pup.

Take Fido out to one of the lovely parks that surround Columbus for a a lovely stroll. Stearns Park is open year round and located right in the middle of downtown Columbus. The park includes a paved walking trail that loops around the park, a playground, gazebo, and picnic tables where you and Fido can relax. The park offers grass for Fido to run around on, but there aren't many trees for shade.

While visiting Columbus, stop into Larkin's Carolina Grill. This pawsome restaurant is just the place Fido was looking for to grab a bite to eat with you. They offer burgers and steaks, and they have a beautiful outdoor patio that welcomes your furry pal to join you for a great meal. After a fun day out, check into the Pine Shadows Chalet for a good night sleep with your furry friend by your side.

    Up in the mountains of nearby Saluda is the Pulliam Creek Trail. This pawsome trail is great to go on an adventure with your pup by your side. The trail is 6.5-miles, is moderately difficult, and generally takes about three hours to complete in full, so be aware of the time if you want a shorter walk. The trail will take you by a river that Fido can splash around in, but make sure to keep him on leash when hiking. The trail is also known to be used for hunting between September and May, so throw some orange on Fido so he will be seen. Don't forget your water and clean-up bags.
