Planning a trip to soak up the sun sometime soon? If you have a dog, you might be concerned about hiring a pet sitter or finding a good kennel you can trust to provide your canine companion with the love and care he needs. Fortunately, when you book dog-friendly Fort Morgan condo rentals, you don't have to leave Fido at home - he can come with you and make your vacation that much more enjoyable.
Of all the Gulf Coast vacation options, Fort Morgan is perhaps the most dog-friendly destination. Not only will you be able to stay with Fido in designated dog-friendly Fort Morgan beach house, there are plenty of activities you can do with him around town. Plan your vacation using this canine-approved guide.
Hang out on the beach
The sandy white beaches of the Gulf Coast make a wonderful setting for family fun, and fortunately in Fort Morgan, you can bring your dog along. The beaches along the Fort Morgan peninsula allow dogs on leashes - with the requirement that you clean up after your dog and respect other beachgoers. Whether you're looking to swim and play on the north shore of the island in Mobile Bay or on the south side in the open Gulf, Fido can come along. The only place dogs are not allowed is the Fort Morgan State Historic Site property. Keep in mind that dogs are not permitted on Alabama beaches in the city limits of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, which means if you venture outside of the Fort Morgan peninsula, you may want to make other arrangements for your dog.
While on the beach, make sure you bring plenty of water and an umbrella if you plan on staying for several hours. Your pooch will appreciate the shade and ability to cool off with water.
Head to Dauphin Island
The beaches of beautiful Dauphin Island are considered the most pet-friendly in the Gulf Coast. The public beach near Dauphin Island Elementary School and the old fishing pier is the largest area that has been set aside for dogs and their owners to play in the sand and surf. There are also many trails you can take your dog down if you're looking for more of a woodsy adventure. The West End Beach Park is the only area on the island where dogs aren't welcome - this is because this space is a bird nesting area.
The ferry ride to Dauphin Island may be short, but if you are planning on staying the day, make sure you bring enough water for yourself and your dog. You might also want to pack a bag of treats or even your dog's dinner if you will be staying late.
Explore the Gulf
Although Fort Morgan is one of the friendliest places to bring your dog, there are other places across the Gulf that welcome wagging tails. Drive just about 20 miles east to Gulf Shores for an ice cream cone with your pooch at Bruster's Real Ice Cream on East Beach Boulevard. A cone for your canine includes dog treats sprinkled on top!
Head further west and cross the Florida line to experience Perdido Key. Beach access point 3 is a dog-friendly area from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. During the busy season, from May through September, the city asks that you leash your dogs.
With all the activities that are fit for both you and Fido, you can be sure booking dog-friendly Fort Morgan beach house rentals will make for an enjoyable vacation for all the members of your family - even the furry ones.
