Mechanicsville, Virginia was once the site of several Civil War battles. These battles left their marks on the countryside. It's a different kind of life here. It is not the busy hustle of the city that you are used to. Come and visit the trails, parks, and historic sites. Walk your dog along the paths that soldiers walked. It gives you a sense of peace to see that as time goes by, beauty and nature prevail. The historic sites here are marked so that you can learn, which makes it fun for the whole family.

The first place you should go is Beaver Creek Dam Battlefield. This is a small park, but it has a nice footbridge over the creek. The entire site is a very popular place to come to take pictures. The historic significance of the area is displayed on easy to read memorial plaques that tell you all about this park. Your dog is going to love the tree-lined trail. 

Gaines Mill Battlefield is a long walk that is lined with old cannons and battlefields. There is a very popular walking trail that you can walk on your own or you can meet up with a tour guide and take your dog with you along a guided tour.

You must try it while you're here! The sides are made fresh daily. The BBQ sauce at Carter's Pigpen is authentic and unique to the restaurant. Anyone in town will tell you that you can bring your dog, but you will have to sit outside at one of the four dog-friendly tables. Make sure that you have a leash with you, and bring your appetite, too!
