Dog-Friendly Tampa – St Pete Florida

Clearwater Beach

Clearwater Beach


The Tampa Bay area is made up of three different communities that grew up for largely different reasons. Tampa, with 300,000 residents, was settled by the Spanish in 1539. It grew in the 1800s when Henry Plant extended his railroad to the city. St Petersburg (population 250,000), Clearwater and the beach areas grew up as a retirement location in the late 1800s. And Sarasota was built in large part by money from John Ringling, of Ringling Brothers Circus fame. The three cities all have appealing downtowns, with Tampa having Franklin Street, which is a pedestrian area. St Pete has a number of restaurants and shops downtown and Sarasota has a waterfront and storefronts with crafts and artwork. Your dog will like browsing these areas with you as well.

San Francisco: Dog-Friendly By The Bay

San Francisco has a population of 805,000 in only 47 square miles. This makes it the second most densely populated city in the U.S. after New York. This is good for people visiting with dogs as it makes the city very walkable. To walk from anywhere to anywhere else in San Francisco you would not have to walk more than 7 miles. Most of the visitor areas are within three miles of each other, however. San Francisco is very scenic and has many hills some of which are quite steep with sidewalks made as stairs. There is a lot to do for a visitor with a dog in the City by the Bay.
