If you want to eat or get a cup of coffee with your fur buddy, you can visit Mona Lisa Pizza, Mangia Brick Oven Pizza and Rosko's Bagels & Waffles. All have dog-friendly outside patios where you can chow down together. You can also go camping with your pup at the Butterfly Camping Resort. Or try the Jackson AirBnB Rentals, where big dogs are allowed to stay at no extra charge. (Pet policies vary based on the host's preferences, though.)

In Jackson, you can find one of the Hurricane Harbor water parks where your dog might be allowed to go in. According to the official rules of the park, pets may be allowed on the property if are they properly checked into the onsite kennel located in the main parking lot.
