Dog-Friendly Activities in San Diego

San Diego and the beach towns in North County are a paradise for pet owners. From playing fetch at the beach to enjoying a delicious meal with your four-legged companion, there are endless places to bring your dog near your Beachfront Only Vacation Rental.


Visit one of the first leash-free beaches in the country at Dog Beach in San Diego. Fiesta Island is located in Mission Bay and offers a fantastic place for dogs to run off-leash or play fetch in the calm waters. If you are looking for a beach for your dog closer to your rental, we recommend Cardiff State Beach.

Pet-Friendly Parks

Balboa Park is one of the city’s most visited areas, and even better, it’s pet friendly! Explore the park’s gardens or head to the west end and let your pet run free at Nate’s Point Dog Park

Encinitas offers several dog parks closer to home, including Orpheus Park and Maggie Houlihan Memorial Dog Park.

Pet-Friendly Restaurants

There are endless pet-friendly restaurants to choose from in San Diego. But, we recommend making the drive back to North County for dinner at one of our local restaurants. Some of our favorite pet-friendly dining options include Beach Break Cafe and Stratford at the Harbor.
