The city of Spartanburg is the 12th largest city in the state, with a large downtown, bustling shopping districts, and sprawling neighborhoods. With the mountains to the northwest and flat fields to the south, there's something for everyone in the family to do here. Many families include a dog, and in this town, there are over 14 animal hospitals and tons of different dog-friendly parks to cater to your favorite canines.

In Spartanburg, pups get their own park known as the Rail Tail Dog Park. This 2-acre plot of land is completely fenced in, with separate areas for small and large pups, an agility course, water fountains, small pools for summer, free toys, and clean-up bags. Dogs can play safely off-leash in this enclosure secured by a double-gated entrance.

The next place to head to with Fido is Croft State Park, a 7,000 acre protected area containing thick forests, lakes, and open fields. Every outdoor space is open to dogs, as long as they remain on a leash 6 feet or shorter. Dogs can go into the lake for swimming, or enjoy over 20 different trails in the park. There are trash cans and benches near the parking areas, but you'll need to remember to bring your own water and clean-up bags.

With gorgeous scenery, different places to walk and play with Fido, and an overall love for dogs, what more can you and Fido ask for in Spartanburg?
