With several million visitors passing through Las Vegas each year, it is no wonder that the city has prepared itself to entertain both its human guests and their beloved four-legged companions. The Las Vegas Parks and Recreation maintain more than 60 parks, 10 of which are dog parks meant specifically for canine visitors to play and mingle.
The Barkin’ Basin Dog Park has two fenced-in areas, one for larger dogs and one for the small but mighty. Grassy fields surround the dog runs, and there is a trail nearby where you and your pup can both get some exercise.
In nearby Boulder City, the Historic Railroad Tunnel Trail is a scenic option for joggers and their dogs. The trail was originally created as part of the Hoover Dam railroad system, and it now offers beautiful views of Lake Mead and Boulder Basin. Its wide, paved path makes it an ideal trail for dogs of all ages and sizes.
If you are taking in the sights for a few days, spend the night at one of many dog-friendly hotels in the area. Several large hotels on the Strip offer pet-friendly rooms, and there are more options a slight distance away from the bright lights of Vegas’ nightlife. Check out the Paris Las Vegas, Bally's, or if you're really planning on splurging on Fido, check out the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas. Whether you are visiting Las Vegas for the entertainment, the historic sites, or the glamorous hotels, you and your pup are guaranteed to find suitable activities for both of you.
