Dog Areas in Verona, VA

Verona is a small town located approximately 40 miles away from Charlottesville, Virginia. If you and the pooch prefer to stay within a bone's throw of Verona, the muttropolis of Staunton is just 6 miles away and has plenty of dog-friendly fun to go around! No need to leave town to find quality vet care, though -- there's a veterinary clinic, hospital, and emergency service here to keep your pup tip-top.

Verona is home to the historic Mount Airy, a sprawling 19th-century estate that's definitely worth a gander. Mount Airy was once home to Grandma Moses, a prolific painter whose work depicted the life of a typical farmer's wife. It's unclear if pets are allowed on the grounds here, so you may want to leave Fido at home for this one.

Need a place to stay while visiting Verona? The local Knights Inn welcomes up to two canine guests per human guest. You can find more pet-friendly lodging options in nearby Staunton.

Hungry? Paw on over to Ciro's Pizza in the center of town, where you and Fido can share a slice at the outdoor tables. You'll also find a pet-friendly chain restaurant in town where you can grab a quick bite before continuing on your travels.

In Verona, you're never far from dog-friendly fun!

Don't forget to bring plenty of clean drinking water -- you wouldn't want your pup drinking out of the falls!
