Bristow is a small town in Prince William County, Northern Virginia, about 30 miles from Washington, DC. It is a fantastic place to stop by with your pooch, with beautiful pup-friendly parks, walking trails and several dog parks nearby. There is a vet clinic and an animal hospital in town, should Fido need some medical help at any stage.
Bristow also has some amazing places to eat that welcome pets of all sizes at their outside tables. Grab yourself a char-grilled burger at Fosters Grille in town, or a chicken sandwich, some wings or even a veggie burger. For a lighter option, head to Tropical Smoothie Café, where you can enjoy a sweet or savoury breakfast, wraps, sandwiches and (of course) a deliciously healthy smoothie.
The Broad Run Trail cuts through Bristow with the Braemar Nature Trail, and is a picturesque walk for you and pup. The trail is open from dawn to dusk and is free to use. You will need to keep your dog leashed and remember to clean up after him. The whole Broad Run Trail is 3.5 miles at this stage and partly paved, but an easy walk.
Bristow is full of history, so take some time to explore and learn
about this lovely place and its legacies, you are both sure to have a
pup-tastic stay here.
