Named by Travel + Leisure as the friendliest US city in 2010, Charleston also extends Southern hospitality to four-legged visitors. Extended stay guests will find that our Charleston pet friendly hotels are the perfect combination for exploring The Holy City.
Enjoy the city's rich history by hopping aboard the Charleston Water Taxi for a scenic ride to Fort Moultrie on sullivan's Island. The US National Park Service does not permit dogs inside the fort, but a long leash and the surrounding fields are a winning combination for a romp among the ancient cannons and informative interpretive exhibits. For further exploration, Charleston has 10 off-leash dog parks - all withing easy access of our Charleston pet friendly hotels.
You can treat your canine friend to some TLC at the self-serve grooming area at Palmetto Paws across the river in Mount Pleasant. It's the perfect restorative after a day of play, and you can also pick up treats, collars and other must-haves while you're there.
Show off your good looking pup with dinner at Bubba Gumps' on Market Street downtown. Well-behaved dogs are welcome on the patio, so indulge in fresh seafood while Fido is treated to fresh, cold water and treats. After a fun-filled day, head back to your Charleston pet friendly hotel for sweet dreams.
