Enjoy St. Simons Island With Your Pet

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

Since our resort is now pet-friendly, we thought we would share a few activities you can enjoy with Fido!

Dog on the beach

The BeachDid you know that St. Simons Island is only one of a handful of places in Georgia and Florida where you can enjoy the beach with your dog? From Labor Day until Memorial Day, leashed dogs are permitted on the beach at any time. From Memorial Day until Labor Day, leashed dogs are permitted on the beach between First Street and Mallery Street after 6pm.

Neptune Park: Located in the heart of the village, Neptune Park is a great place to walk your pup, play catch, throw a frisbee or grill out under the oaks.

Palm Coast Coffee: Grab a bite to eat with your favorite four-legged friend at Palm Coast! They have comfortable outdoor seating for you and your pet to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on their patio. When you are finished, take a stroll on Mallery Street for some of the best window-shopping and people watching on the island. Many stores leave water bowls outside so our pets can stay hydrated.

Ride A Bike: St. Simons Island has over 30 miles of paved, well-maintained bike paths. Rent a bike from our friends at Ocean Motion Surf Co. and bring your dog along for the ride!

First Friday in Downtown Brunswick: On the first Friday of each month from 5-8pm, downtown Brunswick comes alive! Complete with wine tastings, gallery receptions, live music and lots of fun. Many people like to bring their dog down for the evening to enjoy the fun with them.

Read on, and we dare you to not feel the beach breeze and taste the tangy BBQ…
