Situated on the North Shore of Long Island, Jericho is a quaint hamlet that's located just 26 miles from "the city that never sleeps." Jericho has a few claims to fame of its own, though -- it's the hometown of American actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who starred in The Sopranos. The mega-famous Natalie Portman also grew up in Jericho.
Apart from producing some serious acting talent, Jericho is also the pawfect place to be a dog owner! You won't find any pet-friendly lodging options in Jericho (apart from a few AirBnB rentals), but you'll find plenty of accommodations nearby. Jericho also doesn't have any vet clinics, but you'll find an animal hospital just 7 minutes outside of town, in Syosset.
If you have a sweet tooth while you're staying in Jericho, leash up your pup and head to the outdoor patio of 16 Handles, where you can enjoy ice cream, frozen yogurt, or another sweet treat. Leashed canine customers are more than welcome!
While you're here, you'd be barking mad to miss Underhill Preserve, a nature preserve located right in town. This 50-acre preserve has recently come under threat from invasive plant species, so several goats were released in the area to tackle the problem. You never know; you might just see one while you're walking here!
You and your canine companion will love exploring Jericho and its surrounding areas!
