The town of Rye is a popular place in the summer and fall, thanks to the color-changing leaves and largest coastal shoreline of any town in New Hampshire. Tourists, residents, and outdoor lovers love this small town, thanks to the mixture of beach, preserved wetlands, and mountains to the west. Dogs that come to this town are well taken care of with three veterinarians located here.

The Jenness Beach is a dog-friendly beach in Rye, especially in the winter. Dogs are welcome anytime in the winter to socialize, play, or just run around freely, and can normally find 20 to 30 fellow pups there on the weekend. Dogs must remain on a leash, and during the summer hours, pups can only come before 9 AM and after 7 PM. Don't forget to bring water and clean-up bags!

The Rye Recreational Area is the best place to bring Fido if you don't want to be cleaning sand out of his fur for hours after your adventure. The area has huge areas of open space, with green grass, paved trails, and thick forests that surround the park, offering nature trails that wind through it. There's lots of parking for you and your leashed pup, with amenities like water fountains, clean-up stations, benches, picnic areas, and nighttime lights.

Sandy beaches, preserved marshland, and a beautiful park? What more could Fido want in the gorgeous coastal town of Rye?
