Freeport, New York is a bedroom community for New York City, but that doesn't mean it's a sleepy little town! It is actually a quite busy little town with a dense population and some commercial areas. Freeport got its name because it was literally the free port where the sailors could spend some downtime. They were encouraged to get out and explore the many booths that had goods for trade. Back then, getting to the Big Apple took a lot longer than it does today, so Freeport was a convenient spot for shopping and trading.
While you're here, you should take your dog for a walk along the Nautical Mile which features restaurants, taverns, and boardwalks along the beach. Be sure to bring a leash, plenty of water, and some snacks, because you and Fido will want to explore all day long!
Freeport has plenty of green recreational areas, as well as a couple of dog-friendly eateries where you and your hound can chow down, making it the pawfect place for dog owners to live or visit!
If you and Fido are craving some classic pub fare, you'd be barking mad to miss out on Jeremy's Ale House. This cozy pub is housed in a brewery that's over a century old. While you are here, you'll definitely want to grab a brew or two (but only if you aren't driving, of course). They only have five dog-friendly tables outside, so you may want to call ahead if you don't want to wait for a table to open. You will have to keep your dog on a leash here. Bring your own dish if you want your dog to be served alongside you.
