Furry Friends

                 I got this idea the other day while on the phone with a friend from back home. She was looking for a place to come in PCB with her pet in tow. I thought, man, that will save money by just bringing the animal with her. You can easily drop as much on your boarding as your hotel down here. So to save money on kennel or boarding costs while travelling to PCB.  BRING THEM WITH YOU.  While lots of places have went pet-free....there are still several places your furry friends are welcome...several parks, shopping and restaurants offer places to take your puppy pals. Please check each venues rules on pets, as I got this info from the PCB tourism site. Each place reserves the right to change their policies at any time. As always, please be courteous of others while travelling with your pets, please pick up any waste, keep them on a leash or carrier where required, and always know your pet and think of what environment they will feel safe in. Some loud places such as Pier Park and restaurants may be way too much action for your pet and make them misbehave. Happy Travelling!

Pet Friendly Locations
Frank Brown Park has two pet friendly areas. A fenced in playground is available where dogs can run leash-free, as well as 1.5 miles of dog-friendly trails and greenways.

Doggie Beach is located across from Pier Park and west of the City Pier. The 400 foot beach is open to dogs on leashes, and they love strolling the beach and enjoying the waves in Panama City Beach!
In addition, another Panama City Beach pet friendly spot is Aaron Bessant Park (next to Pier Park), and many people love strolling in the green grass and bright sunshine with their leashed canines in tow. The park also offers a lovely grass amphitheater which plays host to a “Summer Concert Series” on Thursday nights. Dogs are welcome to these events, too!
Pier Park in Panama City Beach, the outdoor shopping mall, is another Panama City Beach pet friendly locale. Ron Jon’s Surf Shop allows dogs inside that can be carried. Otherwise, dogs are not allowed inside stores or restaurants, but are allowed to stroll the streets on leashes with their owners.
The new Panama City Beach Conservation Park provides miles of trails and boardwalks to get some exercise with your pet. Trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset. Read more on the Conservation Park here.
