Boulder City is located just outside Las Vegas. This desert city is home to the famous Hoover Dam. In fact, the city originated as a settlement for the workers building the dam back in the 1930s.
There are some great restaurants in this city where you and your canine friend can dine together. A great place to enjoy some food and drinks with your pup is the Boulder Dam Brewing Company. This Fido-friendly eatery welcomes canine companions at the outdoor picnic bench seating, which is also shaded for your comfort. This brewery features more than 12 craft beers and serves up a variety of scrumptious foods, making it the pawfect place to enjoy a bite and brew with your best pal!
There are also dog events that are held in this city throughout the year. Before you visit, check which event will be there while you are in town. After a long day of fun in the Boulder sun, you and Fido can rest your weary heads at the Quality Inn Boulder City, or at any of the pet-friendly AirBnB rentals here.
If you and Fido are looking to enjoy a walk (or a swim!), you're in the right place. The 25-acre Veterans Memorial Park is located here, and welcomes dogs as long as they are on a leash. There is a pond for fishing that your pup will love taking a dip in! Your canine pal will also enjoy exploring the grassy surface of the park and sniffing out the new terrain. The park offers some agility equipment for your pooch to play on, and there are a few trees for shade. Make sure to bring water and some doggie waste bags for clean-up since this isn't a dog park. Grab your pup’s leash and stop by for a pawesome time!
If you and your pooch enjoy hiking, or even just walking while enjoying the outdoors, you won't want to miss The White Rock Canyon Trail. This 4-mile trail can get rocky and is narrow in spots, so always be aware of your surroundings. It is mainly a dirt-covered trail with no shade. You will need to bring plenty of water for you and your pooch, as it tends to get hot on the trail. Lace up your best walking shoes, grab Fido's leash, and see how much of the trail you two can tackle. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful here, so you might want to bring a camera!

You'll even see a few caves, and your pup will love sniffing all of the new scents along the way! Be sure to bring a lot of water for you and your pup, as there is no shade along the trail. Oh, and keep Fido on a leash, too, since one is required here.
