Dog Walking in Somers Point

Famous for being the oldest settlement in Atlantic County, Somers Point is a town packed with history and heritage, as well as plenty of natural beauty. With several green areas to explore, a beach to stroll on, dog-friendly restaurants to dine at, and a highly rated veterinary hospital, Somers Point has everything you could need for a pawtastic time with Fido.

If your pooch enjoys the sun, sand and surf, then the William Morrow Beach will be a big hit. This sandy stretch of shoreline is open to the public during the summer months, and features lifeguards, restrooms and plenty of parking. Dogs are welcome to enjoy the beach too, but do need to be kept on a lead at all times.

For dogs who prefer grass to sand, there are a few parks worth checking out in Somers Point. The John F. Kennedy Park is always popular, with its large playground, gazebo, new boat ramp and picnic area. The park also boasts stunning views out over Great Egg Harbor Bay.

When you and Fido start to feel hungry, stop off for a bite to eat at one of Somers Point's dog-friendly restaurants. Back Bay BBQ is a road-side BBQ shack with outdoor tables for you and Fido to dine at together, while Buona Vita specializes in traditional and authentic Italian cuisine.

With so much to keep you and Fido busy, there will never be a dull moment when the two of you are in Somers Point.
