Travel east about 15 miles from Oregon’s state capital of Salem, and you and your dog will find yourselves in the adorable city of Silverton. Originally settled in the 1800s, Silverton is now a tourism hotspot, with shops, restaurants and quaint hotels. Should your pooch need veterinary care, there are two animal clinics in Silverton.
The town’s 80-acre Oregon Garden draws crowds throughout the year, and it’s a super fun place for you and Fido! Leash your dog and explore the trails at the woofderful pet-friendly garden! You and your pup will see beautiful flowers, and also learn about which plants are fur-iendly and which ones are toxic to pets.
Another pawpular pooch hangout is the Silverton Dog Park! This fully fenced-in off-leash area has tons of room for your dog to exercise and socialize. There is a special separate yard for small dogs, doggie waste cleanup stations, picnic tables and paved walkways.
Need a place to stay the night? The Oregon Garden Resort is a puptacular hotel that loves to host pets and their people, and it has pawsome views of the Oregon Garden! There is an additional fee for furry overnight guests.
Whether you’re a local or a visitor to Silverton, you and your pooch will have a tail wagging good time!
