Outer Banks, or vacationing with dogs

esradeJune 17, 2004

We'd like to take our dogs on vacation and would like some recommendations. Everyone tells us to go to the Outer Banks. Does anyone have any specific tips for the Outer Banks, such as places to stay, realtors to go through, etc? How far apart are the houses? I wouldn't trust my dogs off-leash, although if there weren't a lot of people around, I could put them on a 20' or 50' lead.

Check some rental agencies at Outer Banks would be my advice.
Did you know dogs are permitted on a leash on the boardwalk and beach of Ocean City MD off season? I think that's from the end of Sept - end of April. My dogs love strolling the boards and September is still a nice time to go there. Fenwick Inn takes dogs but be warned the rooms are usually smoking (and I would call for reservations first) but we put up such things to take the furbabies along. If you camp Tom's Cove park in Chincoteague, VA allows dogs but they are not allowed at Assateague Island where the ocean is. Good luck! Kathy

I have 2 great danes and we took them to OBX last year for 2 weeks. We stayed at a rental home that allowed pets, had a pool and a hottub!! The pool area was fenced so we didn't have to worry about them in that area. We walked them on leash for potty breaks and all went well. I'll post a link to a site with some realtors. Have fun!!

Also try: Petfriendly.com, and travelpets. A search using Key words such as "pet friendly (insert town name)" will help too.
