Pet owners in Boston have an advantage over many other cities in the United States. Colonial city planning often makes transportation more efficient on foot, giving guests at our Boston pet friendly hotels a definite leg up.
Start with a stroll along the Charles River. Between the esplanade and Harvard Bridge, the paved paths of Boston’s most popular promenade teem with joggers, roller bladders, bicyclists and dogs out for walks. The farther west you go, the more secluded it gets.
No area of the city is perhaps more entertaining than the Faneuil Hall Marketplace. On weekend afternoons, more than 300 years of history mingle with hordes of tourists, street performers, retailers, and the aromas of 40 food-court kitchens pouring from Quincy Market next door.
Beer lovers staying at our Boston pet friendly hotels should stop by the Cambridge Brewing Company, the oldest brewpub in the city. In the outdoor courtyard, customers and their pups can enjoy a full menu as well as hearty lagers, ales and seasonal specialty beers brewed on site.
You could spend an entire day with your dog on the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile trip past Boston’s main historical sites, including Bunker Hill, Old Ironsides, the Old North Church and Paul Revere’s house. Not all the sites are pet-friendly, so be sure to ask permission before entering.
