About halfway between Vancouver and Seattle sits Burlington, a small but active community with a rich history in agriculture and logging. Originally a logging camp in the 1880s, Burlington was officially incorporated in 1902. The town is best known for its annual Berry Dairy Days festival that celebrates Burlington’s roots as a farming community. The festival is said to have once featured the largest strawberry shortcake in the world.

Pups and their people love visiting Burlington’s many parks, especially the 51-acre Skagit River Park. There’s pawsome paths where you can walk with your leashed dog next to the beautiful Skagit River. The park has lots of open grassy areas too, plus picnic tables, soccer and baseball fields, restrooms and horseshoe pits. 

If you’re just visiting the area and you need a place to stay overnight with your dog, the Fairfield Inn and Suites Burlington has clean, comfortable and updated rooms. Pets are welcome for an additional fee.

Burlington also offers six veterinary clinics to care for your pup’s medical needs, so you can feel safe exploring with your furry bestie here!

For a tasty treat in Burlington, head to Whidbey Coffee. Enjoy a huge selection of coffees and specialty drinks, plus baked goods, sandwiches and wraps at one of their pet-friendly tables outside.
