Somerville sits in Somerset County, New Jersey, approximately 45 miles south-southwest of New York City. If you love good food and lots of outdoor activity, this is a great town to visit. With plenty of dog-friendly places to eat, and many great trails and dog parks nearby, you and your pup will love visiting Somerville.
While you are in town, you must visit The Hungry Hound. This café not
only allows dogs INSIDE the café to dine with their owners, but specially bakes
doggie cakes and cookies so everyone can enjoy a special treat. They use only
the freshest ingredients, so you can be assured your pup will not only lick
every last crumb from his plate, but will stay happy and healthy from the experience.
If you are looking for a meal somewhere close by, head to Social. This trendy little place serves a menu of contemporary American cuisine and has a few pet-friendly outdoor tables where your dog can sit by your side.
Through the centre of Somerville is a lovely walking trail known as the Peters Brook Greenway. This trail follows a band of parks, from the John Long Memorial Park in the north, through Exchange Field and Van Fleet Gardens, through Schaub Park and down to Michael Lepp Field. There are playgrounds, picnic areas and water fountains at the parks along the way.
This is just a few of the many things to see and do in Somerville. Whatever you choose, you and your dog will enjoy every moment here.
