Known for its scenic peninsula, Long Beach is a beautiful oceanside town in Washington State. Don’t let its small size or low population fool you; this town is a perfect place to bring your friendly Fido to make some pup pals. Whether you’re a native or someone popping in for a quick visit, it’s easy to see why one would choose Long Beach as their destination.
The most obvious destination is Long Beach itself, which has miles of soft and open sand for your pup to pitter patter their paws in. Well-behaved dogs are generally allowed off their leashes on this particular beach, but you’ll want to bring a leash just in case -- one that is eight feet long at the maximum. Bring a tennis ball to toss around with your pal, or let them get their toes wet in the rising and falling tide. Just be sure to keep a close eye on your precious pup, and bring plenty of clean drinking water so they’re not tempted to drink that salty ocean water. Additionally, bring some doggy waste bags to dispose of any messes your wily woofer may make. You’ll want to keep this beach clean for everyone!
For the next must-see stop on your doggy day trip, hustle on over to Breakers, a neighborhood in Long Beach. There is where you’ll find Discovery Trail, a path first trekked by Lewis and Clark. Though you must keep your dog leashed on the trail, that won’t get in the way of your barking good time. From the giant gray whale skeleton to the nineteen-foot bronze sculpture known as Clark’s Tree, you and your adventurous pal will have plenty to take in and explore while you’re checking out Discovery Trail. For doggy waste bags, look for the metal dog sculptures!
