Charleston in Kanawha County, West Virginia, is located on the south side of the Kanawha
River, and only 4.3 miles east of the State’s capital of Charleston. There are two
animal hospitals in town, one of which specialises in emergency care, so your
dog will be well looked after should he fall ill.
While you are here, Joplin Park is a must-see. Within the park’s grounds is the pawriffic Bark Park, with a safe, fenced area for your pup to play free of the lead and socialize with other pets. There is plenty of shade here and benches for you to sit at while you watch your pup. Outside the dog park is a 0.3-mile paved trail around the grounds where you can take a walk with your pup on a lead. You may also like to utilise the exercise stations along the way too. There are picnic shelters with grills at Joplin Park, as well as a playground and basketball court, making it a fantastic spot for a family outing.
If you are looking for a pup-friendly place to eat in South Charleston, head to the Happy Days Café. There are three outdoor tables here where pets are permitted to sit with their humans. Tuck into your choice of sandwich (of which the selection is impressive) or a burger, hotdog or sweet treat of ice cream or milkshake.
