The namesake of its county, Laurens is a beautiful city in South Carolina that may not seem all that impressive at first glance. Give the city time, however, and you’re sure to be won over. With scenic views and friendly faces at every turn, it’s easy to see why dog lovers are crazy about this locale.
Though, admittedly, there isn’t much to do within city limits, Laurens is in close proximity to other dog-friendly cities, and can be a welcome reprieve from some of the overpopulated cities in the great state of South Carolina. It maintains a country vibe without all the danger of classic country music: losing your wife, your truck, your house, and worst of all, your dog. No worries here, your humble hound will be safe at your side!
A hop and a skip from Laurens, you’ll find yourself in the neighboring Greenville county which is home to Simpsonville, and more specifically, the Simpsonville Dog Spot. A sponsored dog park within a family park, your children are sure to have a great time here -- furry or otherwise. With two large fenced areas to keep large and small dogs separate, it’s easy to see this park’s merits.
