Fantastic Caverns

These Jeep pulled Trams take you for a tour of the Cave

One of the most interesting dog-friendly attractions that we have seen is this drive-through Cave in Springfield, MO. Leashed and well-behaved dogs are allowed on the tram tours. It’s a 50 minute tour on a jeep tram, so there is very little walking. They allow one dog on each jeep tour so you may have to wait a tour or two if there are other dogs ahead of you. There are picnic tables outside to eat at if you bring your own basket and some interesting hiking trails.

Parc de la Chute-Montmorency – Quebec City

Parc de la Chute-Montmorency

This 270 foot waterfall is actually higher than its more famous cousin at Niagara. You and your leashed dog may take a cablecar ride up to the top of the falls, take a short 1/4 mile walk to the falls and walk across a narrow bridge at the head of the falls. There is a great view from the bridge. Dogs on leash are allowed on the cablecar and at all outdoor areas and trails in the park. This was definitely a highlight of our most recent trip to the area. See more places in Quebec City at this link.
