Visit one of America's most iconic institutions of higher learning by taking your pooch on a campus tour of Harvard University. Founded in 1636, this prestigious school of higher learning draws visitors from all across the globe. Wide-open spaces, occasional special events and free guided tours of the campus are just some of the ways this Ivy League university welcomes guests. Your leashed, well-behaved pup is allowed on campus, as long as you keep him under your control at all times and clean up after him.
Catch a view of the Boston Harbor with your four-legged companion by taking City Water Taxi's Island Romp for dogs and dog lovers. This 25-minute boat ride transports visitors to the Boston Harbor Islands, where dogs can roam leash-free. Best of all, dogs and children under 12 ride for free.
Experience the more urban side of Boston with a trip to Faneuil Hall Marketplace, near our Boston pet friendly hotels. This outdoor shopping and dining complex permits pets, but be warned that the popular area can get quite crowded at times. While the marketplace itself is dog friendy, individual stores set their own policies; so be sure to check before bringing Fido inside.
