Pearl River, New York has an interesting name, but the legend behind the name is infinitely more intriguing. A resident of Pearl River named Dr. Ves Bogert had a fascination with the muddy creek located near the settlement. In fact, Muddy Creek was its official name until the 1870s. Bogert was digging around in the creek, exploring, when he started picking up mussels. The story goes that he was going to make a stew from them, but when he started to clean them, he found several tiny pearls.

This story is just one of many local legends surrounding the town's origin. One thing's for sure, though: Pearl River loves its pets! Take Fido to 1 Happy Camper Way, a park that welcomes leashed dogs with open arms. Make it an adventure with your pup as you search for your own mussels. Of course, you could just spend the day walking through the trails and enjoying the magic of the area. There are many amenities, like a playground, bathhouse, and even picnic sites. Your dog can enjoy the whole area with you as long as he's on-leash. 

While you're here, you'd be barking mad miss out on Jane Cafe. Breakfast is their specialty. Feast on omelettes and french toast until your belly is full and happy. Or, come for dinner and chow down on empanadas!

Pearl River is pawfect for pets -- and their parents!

    Rampo Valley County Park is a public park located in Mahwah. You and your pooch are sure to make un-fur-gettable memories here, which makes the quick, 12-mile drive well worth it. There are multiple trails, most of which require your dog to be on a leash. The orange trail is a leash-optional trail; just remember that it can be quite difficult to catch your dog if he is a runner. There are no water fountains, so please bring drinking water for both you and your dog. There are trash cans along the way that provide doggie waste bags just in case you forget your own.
