Another spot I like to visit with Nugget is Bel Air which is about 45 minutes northeast of Baltimore. It’s easy to spend a whole day on Main Street with your pup!
You can start your morning with breakfast at Sunny Day Cafe, where you can sit outside with your dog. Many mornings I drive by and see a handful of dogs sitting outside as people enjoy a beautiful morning eating delicious food. They also provide your doggy with a water bowl to keep them hydrated! Enjoy a yummy crepe, omelette, or breakfast sandwich with a cup of hot coffee.
After breakfast, head about a mile down Main Street to the Ma and Pa Trail. This is a wide paved walking trail, and they are currently working to expand the trail to 8 miles in length. There is even a dog park right off the trail that is open to the public. It is located about 2 miles from the trail head off Main Street in Heavenly Waters Park and has separate areas for large and small dogs. If you choose to venture further on the trail, there is a pet memorial where people go to remember their beloved pets.
After a trail hike, head on back toward Main Street and check out Independent Brewing Company. There are a ton of various craft beers to check out, and dogs are allowed both inside the building and on the patio. They provide water bowls and even sell beer-shaped dog treats! If you worked up an appetite from your hike, there are various food trucks on site which serve absolutely delicious food! Just check the calendar on the website http://www.independentbrew.com before you go.
Lastly, I walk back up Main Street and take Nugget to the pet boutique To Wag For. We browse the items in the store, and then I buy Nugget a tasty treat such as The Bear and the Rat dog ice cream. He loves it!
It’s always fun to get out of our normal routine and check out a new town. There are so many dog-friendly places to visit. You just have to explore!
