Madison has some interesting places for a person with a person and a dog to visit. The town has three veterinary clinics in case of accident or emergency, as well as many green spaces to keep your pup fit and active.

Two municipal parks have trails for a person and a leashed pup to explore. Rosedale Park has some short trails for on-leash outdoor exercise. A few picnic tables make an outdoor snack or lunch with a furry companion an added experience. Sonny Vitale Memorial Field is another municipal park with trails through a canopy of trees for a person and a leashed dog. Vitale Field has a few picnic sites for a relaxing end to a scenic hike.  

Looking for a more rugged adventure? A few miles southwest of Madison is the 7,700-acre Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. This is a haven for hundreds of species of birds, and a place where wildlife is protected from everything except people's cameras. Dogs are allowed in parts of the refuge as long as they stay on a leash no shorter than ten feet. There are many hiking trails throughout the refuge. The adjoining Lord Stirling Park has over 8.5 miles of walking trails through some beautiful natural scenery.

While you're in town, visit one of Madison's many dog-friendly restaurants. Blue Wazabi has Asian cuisine and specializes in sushi and Thai food. This restaurant is located at 20 Waverly Place. Two dog-friendly tables let you bring a pup with you to dine for either lunch or dinner. Grillera at 91 Park Avenue welcomes you and your furry companion at its outdoor tables to try an entree of Mediterranean cuisine.  These restaurants will help fill that hearty appetite after a day of some outdoor adventure!

    #2 Morristown

    Morristown is five miles north of Madison. Lewis Morris is a pawsome dog park to visit, especially after rain makes most dog parks muddy! This dog park has paved large and small dog sections that are fully fenced for some off-leash exercise. A small patch of grass divides the large and small dog areas. Water is available for dogs at the dog park, and doggie waste baggies help make it easy for the human companions to pick up after their pups. The pavement makes it easy to spot where clean-ups are needed. Unfortunately, this dog park doesn't have enough places for people to sit while their pups play. The rest of the county park has areas to picnic and do some on-leash walking.
