Wood Ridge, a small town in New Jersey, is something of a hidden treasure for locals. While less than twenty miles away from New York City, there’s just enough distance to be free of the excessive traffic and busy sidewalks. It’s easy to see why tourists and locals alike would enjoy this town, especially if they’re dog owners; Wood Ridge and the surrounding areas are filled to the brim with dog-friendly activities and restaurants for you and Fido to explore.
If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of New York, stay in Wood Ridge for the evening and stop in at Bachi 197. Take a seat at one of their three outdoor tables, and scour the menu for your new favorite treat. Bachi 197 is unique in the sense that it’s a fusion of Asian and Mexican cuisine, so you’re sure to have plenty of options to try something new. If you want something more classic like a slider, those are available as well. Be sure to bring your trusty collapsible water bowl, and some fresh drinking water for your woofer to wet their whistle. Bring some treats as well, so puppy don’t miss out!
