A small borough in New Jersey, Merchantville is a pleasant and low-key place to have a little doggy adventure. The town is peaceful, with friendly locals, and it just so happens to be conveniently located just across the bridge from Philadelphia. Whether you’re looking for something a bit more relaxing, or you’re eager to explore the hustle and bustle of a much larger city, Merchantville is in the perfect location for either of these sorts of day trips.
No worries if you’re not looking to travel, though -- settled right in the middle of the borough is Merchantville Bike Path. One of the many rail trails supported by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, this bike path is open to all sorts of travelers. Leash up Fido and prepare for a nice brisk day, walking along the beautiful and well-maintained trail. All you’ll need to bring is plenty of water for the two of you, some doggy waste bags, and maybe a few treats to reward your pup’s doggone good behavior. Who knows? Maybe your pup will make some new pals they’re willing to share their yum-yums with!
Regardless of what you choose to do, Merchantville is, without a doubt, a must-see doggy destination!
