Margate City is located on Absecon Island, which is also home to the larger Atlantic City. There is one vet in town, and another in nearby Ventnor City.

TheJerome Avenue Park is a great little green space in town where you can take your pup for a walk on the lead. There is a playground here for the small two-legged companions, and a soccer field providing plenty of open space for fun and games.

Margate City is a gold mine for pup-friendly places to eat, such as Hannah G’s on the eastern border. This casual eatery serves up American-style meals for breakfast and lunch, such as omelettes, pancakes, sandwiches, wraps, burgers, or a satisfying salad such as the Loaded Up Spinach Salad. Close by is a little bakery and café simply known as No. 7311, where you can grab a hot cup of coffee and a pastry or cookie. Both of these places allow dogs at their outdoor tables.

Just west of Margate City is the Longport Dog Beach at Somers Point in Longport. This beach welcomes doggie play off the lead, giving your pet the chance to really stretch his legs and tear up and down the sandy banks as much as he desires! If he is a swimmer, the water is clean and a lovely way to cool off in warmer weather. There aren’t any amenities here, so you will need to pack drinking water and clean up bags. There is plenty of parking close by. Just a short hop to the next island over is Back Bay BBQ, where you can get a hearty meal of ribs, BBQ pulled pork, chicken and a variety of sides with your worn-out pooch by your side at one of the outdoor tables.
