The best dog friendly neighborhoods in Elko
Downtown Elko is a great place to take in historic sites as you stroll the streets with your pup. Architectural landmarks include the Elko County Courthouse and the Pioneer Building, which was originally established as a saloon and hotel in the late nineteenth century and is now home to the Western Folklife Center. You can admire historic trains at the small Railroad Park in the heart of downtown, which also includes a grassy area where you can take a leashed dog for a quick bathroom break. If you get hungry, B.J. Bull, a restaurant that serves sweet and savory pastries, has dog-friendly outdoor seating. Right off of the downtown area, you can walk the two-mile riverside trail maintained by the Humboldt Area River Project (HARP). You will need to keep your dog on a leash and bring your own waste bags and water.
