For dog owners, Washington DC offers plenty of exciting destinations to take your four-legged best friend. From inside the heart of the city to the surrounding DMV area, adventure and beauty are often just a half-day walk or quick Zip Car ride away. Here are two of my favorite spots to take Cuevo.
The Georgetown Waterfront
There’s nothing more relaxing than feeling the breeze from the Potomac River as you navigate the riverside path. The riverfront also offers a great space for dogs to play. As sort of a dog mecca, there is never a lack of other dogs with their owners to play with. The numerous green patches often serve as mini-parks to play catch or just frolic with your pup. In the warmer months, the waterfront fountain is a great way for you and the furry friend to cool off.
Billy Goat Trail
The Billy Goat Trail is a 4.7 mile-long hiking trail located in Montgomery County, Marlyand. It’s hard to find closer natural and topographical beauty than this 30-minute drive. The trail is also a favorite for dogs, offering two sections (B &C) for them to walk through as long as the leashes are kept on. The park features a multitude of stunning waterfalls and rapids that are sure to make you feel a long ways away from the city. For dogs that love climbing, and owners that enjoy hiking, look no further.
