Long Island City is the largest city in Queens, New York. Known for its residential growth and its thriving artistic community, Long Island City is a beautiful waterfront destination. Oddly enough, Long Island City is home to the largest fortune cookie factory in the United States – yum! Long Island has around eight diverse villages incorporated in the community for you to explore.

Long Island City has eleven lodging options that are dog-friendly, ranging anywhere from $99 to $672 per night. Be careful when checking out the accommodations; each lodging option has a different policy. Several lodging options do not charge a pet fee and do not place a limit on the number of dogs. These accommodations range from the trendy Airbnb to five-star hotels. No matter your needs or budget, Long Island City has an ideal lodging accommodation for everyone.  

Long Island also offers a variety of dog friendly restaurants – a whopping 22 options! The crowd’s favorite is LIC Bar, where you can dine with your dog in the outside patio. You can enjoy delicious barbeque and listen to live music with your four-legged best friend here.

Two dog-friendly activities, a brewery and a dog park, are available in Long Island for your dog to enjoy. Neighboring cities include New York, Bronx, Brooklyn, and more for added fun!

    This dog-friendly neighborhood is home to the Murray Playground Dog Run, part of the larger John F. Murray Playground. The dog park is an off-leash park, but your pal will need to be on a leash if he wants to explore outside the designated area. You’ll need to bring some drinking water and waste bags for cleaning up after your pup. If all that playing makes you hungry, stop by the LIC Bar, just a couple of blocks from the dog park. This Fido-friendly bar lets you enjoy live music and your favorite craft beer out on the patio.

    Brooklyn is famous the world over for its people and food, but it’s also very welcoming to dogs! There are a ton of Fido-friendly places to sleep, eat, and exercise here. Brower Park is a local favorite. It’s a quiet park that allows your leashed pal to play any time. You also won’t want to miss the dog-friendly beach on Gerritsen Avenue! Don’t forget to bring drinking water and waste bags to both locations, since they’re not provided. Afterward, head over to Bedford Cheeseshop, where your leashed, well-behaved pal is allowed to sample the cheeses, meats, and sandwiches with you!

    #3 Lloyd Harbor

    This friendly neighborhood is located about 18 miles from Long Island City. If you’re looking to get in some exercise for you and your pooch, you should check out the Walt Whitman Trail. This is an easy hike that is about 4.25 miles and usually takes about 2 hours to complete. The trails are made of dirt, so no need to worry about your pup’s paws. You will need to watch out for horses and horse droppings, as the trails are also horse-friendly! You’ll need to bring some water and waste bags along. Practice good petiquette, and don’t allow your pup to harass the horses or any other wildlife that may call this trail home.

    #4 Bay Shore

    This community is just 11 miles away from Long Island. If you’re looking to enjoy a day in nature and a scenic view, you need to visit the Gardiner County Park. Although you’ll find doggie waste bags scattered throughout the park, you will need to bring along water for your pooch and make sure they stay on their leash while you are here. This park has several dirt-covered trails for you and your leashed pup to explore, and the best part is they lead to the ocean! You’ll find a small shoreline which is a nice spot for your pup to splash in the water after a walk. You can see the lighthouse from here, so bring your camera and prepare for the pawfect day out!

    The quaint community of Bohemia has a population of just over 10,000, and is also home to a couple of dog-friendly eateries that you and Fido are sure to go mutts for! At Glenn Wayne Bakery, you can enjoy a unique, fresh cake-flavored donut with your best pal at one of the outdoor tables. Looking for something a little more substantial? Head to Cooky’s, where you can peruse a vast menu full of all your favorites. Whether you’re craving breakfast, lunch, or dinner, Cooky’s will be more than happy to welcome you and your pal to dine together at one of four outdoor tales. Bone Appetit!
