Hi, I'm Katlyn! I grew up on a farm in New Hampshire where we had all sorts of animals—including many dogs. After moving to the city, I used to take my own yellow lab to the park and walk him frequently. I love to cuddle and love dogs, and enjoy spending time outside!

As the name implies, Tobaccoville has its roots in tobacco like much of the Winston-Salem metropolitan area. Just 14 miles from Downtown Winston-Salem, Tobaccoville also retains a friendly and tightly-knit community. Though small, Tobaccoville has plenty of Southern charm. The downtown blocks are worth a stroll: the Old Richmond Schoolhouse and Gymnasium (which now contains a museum) is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
There are three veterinary practices in King, NC — an adjacent town a mere 3 miles from Tobaccoville. And, all the creature comforts of Winston-Salem await just a few minutes away. There are more than 70 dog-friendly restaurants in Winston-Salem that provide patio seating, and to make it a whole night out, take Rover with you to Recreation Billiards on West 4thStreet.
If you’re in search of a more peaceful pastime, the rolling hills and winding rivers that surround Tobaccoville are just begging for you to explore. Yadkin Island Park has five miles of moderate hiking trails along the Yadkin River, just 10 miles northwest of Tobaccoville. Dogs must remain on-leash (and don’t forget the waste bags), but this scenic trail is often surprisingly quiet; don’t be surprised if you spot deer or smaller wildlife.
With the entrance near the town of Pinnacle, Pilot Mountain State Park is just 11 miles from Tobaccoville. Perched atop the 2,000-foot Pilot Mountain, the park has amazing overlooks in every direction. Though steep, a 6.5-mile trail corridor connects the mountaintop park to parkland on the Yadkin River down below. If boating seems more tempting than climbing, consider the canoe-in camping sites along the river. On your way home, stop in King for a delightfully “retro” dining experience: the walk-up window at the Dairi-O. You’ll feel like you’re back in the ‘60s sharing some delicious soft-serve with Rover at the sidewalk seating.
The Winston-Salem suburb of Germanton is a mere 11 miles from Tobaccoville on the eastern side of the city, and the Happy Hounds Dog Park at Horizons Park makes it well worth the drive. The park offers separate play areas for large and small dogs, a waste station, and a water fountain-bowl for drinking and maybe a little recreational splashing. For something different, stop for sushi on the patio at Kimono Japanese Restaurant as you pass by US Hwy 52 on your way home. Keep an eye on the wasabi; just because Fido would eat it doesn’t mean he should.
Less than 15 miles away, Downtown Winston-Salem is still small enough to be navigable but bustling and hip enough to satisfy even the most sophisticated pups. On the West End, near Old Salem, Washington Park’s off-leash dog park is a must-visit on any trip into town. If he was a very good boy at the park, you might even consider stopping by the K-9 Doggie Bakery and Boutique for some provisions or a new look. Then, see what’s on the tasting taps at Wise Man Brewing, where you and your fur family can snack from the food trucks and sample micro-brews on the patio. Nearby, The Quiet Pint has dog-friendly dinner and drinks on a giant covered patio with fans: perfect for hot summer nights.
Danbury, NC is 19 miles northeast of Tobaccoville and the gateway to Hanging Rock State Park, so grab the leashes, waste bags, and water bottles and head for the hills. This wooded preserve offers vista views over the North Carolina piedmont as well as an 18-mile network of dog-friendly trails. The Hidden Falls Trail offers an easy and scenic 0.8-mile round trip walk, while the more ambitious Hanging Rock Trail is a moderate 2.6-mile round trip with the park’s signature view as your reward. When you’re tired of ruffing it in the wilderness, Danbury also offers dog-friendly fine dining on a patio overlooking the Dan River at the Green Heron Club.
Though it’s a 20-mile trip from Tobaccoville, the eastern Winston-Salem community of Kernersville is worth a visit. The Vivian Bennett Dog Park is a lovely green off-leash park with separate areas for small and large dogs, along with a watering hole and waste station. Kernersville also has 7 dog-friendly restaurants, including some unusually fancy options. The lovely porch at the Spanish-inspired Bistro B and Wine Bar offers refined small-plate dining in a setting that welcomes your pup (who prefers a large plate, please.) If that’s not your taste, try the more low-key Deli on Main or one of the three frozen treat spots; we’d head straight for Whit’s Frozen Custard.
