Thanks to its nearness to the Atlantic Ocean, which currently ranks #2 regarding the world's oceanic divisions, Virginia Beach is located near miles of beaches, as well as the accompanying restaurants, hotels, and recreational areas. The city sees plenty of tourists every year, and it has plenty to do for residents and visitors alike.

Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation oversees over 4,000 acres of parkland spread out across 265 city parks. Many of these allow leashed dogs on paved walkways and fields, though if you’re looking for more exercise, you may want to visit one of the city’s three dog parks instead. Bayville Farms Park is the first in the city to have separate areas for large and small dogs, with plenty of space in both for a good romp.

For a beautiful view, check out First Landing State Park. This park covers 2,888 acres and has a wide range of activities available for visitors, including hiking, picnicking, swimming, and boating. Nine trails wind through the park, totaling 19 miles altogether. Pick the one that’s best suited for you and your pup, and spend a day exploring the great outdoors together. You can also stop by the beach, which provides a close look at Chesapeake Bay.
