If you love your dog or furry friends, then you already know how awesome it is to take them on vacation, but finding a place that accepts your four-legged family member can be tricky. Pet-loving customers often turn away when they try to book a hotel for their pet. Hotels can be limited to animals due to their many guests’ different comfort levels or allergies to pets. Our Outer Banks Vacation Rentals take care of this for you. You won’t have to worry about leaving your favorite furry friend behind with our many pet-friendly solutions. Read on to see how you and your travel companion can enjoy some great activities and accommodations in the Outer Banks.
Activities and Outdoors with Your Pet
The Outer Banks features countless outdoor activities for you and your family. The outdoor access and idyllic weather make it perfect for bringing along your pet. It’s important to know that each beach on the Outer Banks has its own rules about having your dog on its beaches. So, you’ll want to do a little research about the specific rules and regulations. Here’s what we’ve gathered from the outerbanks.org page as a cheat sheet for your convenience. Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Manteo, Nag’s Head, and Duck allow your dog on their beaches year-round. Duck is the only one that does not require a leash. Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, and Kill Devil Hills allow dogs before 9 am and after 6 pm. There are varying restrictions on the length of the leash and other specifics like the time of year you’re traveling, so again, make sure you do a little more research to make the most of your stay. All beaches allow for those early mornings and evening walks your furry friends love. Of course, any restrictions do not apply to service dogs who are trained to be of assistance to disabled people. Lastly, there are many walking trails, refuges, and parks where you and your pet can go for a nice cool walk and have time to play.
