Trenton, New Jersey may be a large, bustling city. However, it is surrounded by thick national forests and several great walking trails to take your pet out on for the day. For playtime, take your pet to the Morrisville Dog Park. The park has two separate areas for large and small dogs, and they even host events so that dogs can have social days.
For something with a bit more adventure, your pet will love the Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park. While you most likely won’t walk or ride the entire 70-mile span, your dog will love going for a few miles. This scenic trail is an excellent location for a jog or bike ride with your furry friend. They allow horseback riding as well for those who are looking for new trails with their equine buddies.
When lodging in Trenton, tuck into the Howard Johnson-Princeton/Lawrenceville Hotel. Long name aside, this cozy hotel is right near the Princeton campus and allows your pet to sleep in their facilities. Great for those wanting to visit their friends and family who may be attending the college.
For a tasty treat, you must go to Bruster’s Real Ice Cream. Not only can you have a sundae, but your pet can too! They make specialty doggie sundaes for your pet to enjoy while you both sit out on their welcoming patio.
Trenton has some unique experiences for all pet lovers. They do everything they can to make you and your pet feel right at home and enjoy yourselves no matter where in the city you decide to go!
