A town in Wake County, North Carolina, Holly Springs boasts a relatively large population, but don’t let that intimidate you. While the city is rather large, it’s nothing compared to its neighbors, Raleigh and Durham. Compared to the two of those, it’s actually a rather peaceful and welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle. Holly Springs itself could be considered a doggy paradise in its own right, with a selection of six dog-friendly restaurants to choose from, in addition to the attractions in the neighboring cities.
If you’re in Holly Springs, a dine-out doggy day trip is certainly in order. If you happen to find yourself in the scenic neighborhood of Glenwood, you and Fido should definitely make the trip to Bass Lake Draft House, a restaurant that serves a selection of tantalizing bar fare with a unique twist. Choose from a number of appetizers, salads, soups, steaks, and sandwiches, or check out one of their specials. The locals swear by The Ugly Vampire Slayer Burger, which has a spicy kick that anyone would go dog wild for. Your canine companion is welcome to join you at any of the ten outdoor tables as long as he's on-leash and well-behaved, so get ready to chow down!
