Garden City is a moderately populated village located on Long Island. The village was founded in 1869 by an Irish multi-millionaire named Alexander Turney Stewart, who bought the original settlement, Hempstead Plains. Stewart described Hempstead Plains as a "barren waste", and said he was willing to spend "several millions of dollars" to turn it into a desirable place to live.

Stewart's investment was a sound one, because modern Garden City is anything but a barren waste! It's home to Adelphi University's main campus, effectively making it a college town. You don't need to be a college student to enjoy the sights and sounds Garden City has to offer, though! Canine companions are welcomed here with open arms, and the two animal hospitals in town keep all pups happy and healthy.

Garden City is home to several pet-friendly hotels, including budget-friendly national chains like La Quinta Inn & Suites and Hyatt Place as well as The Garden City Hotel. This hotel was rebuilt after extensive fire damage, but it stands on the same grounds as the original hotel which first attracted settlers to the village in the mid-19th century.

When it comes to restaurants and cafes where you can take your dog with you, there are plenty in Garden City! You'll find more than 15 eateries that allow dogs. Some of these include Grimaldi's, Sushi Ya, Prost Grill and Garten, Seventh Street Café, Garden City Bistro, Revel Restaurant & Bar, La Nonna Bella, and many more.

This quaint college village is the pawfect place to visit or live, especially for dog owners!
