Living in Texas, you probably already have a feel for just how pet-friendly the Lone Star State really is. Texas boasts 3.8 pet-friendly restaurants per 100,000 residents, not to mention you’ll often see people and their pets out walking the trails, strolling neighborhood parks, and grabbing a pint at the local pub. Explore (with your pup) all that the great state of Texas has to offer in these four pet-friendly Texas destinations.


Declared the most pet-friendly city in Texas by WalletHub and claiming the second spot on the top 100 list of most pet-friendly cities in the U.S., Austin takes home the prize for good reason. Austin is bursting at the seams with pet-friendly restaurants, with about 500 dog-friendly restaurants (what?!). So on your next visit to Austin, take your time scoping out all of the amazing restaurants, dog parks, and more in this top dog city.


Home to the Houston World Series of Dog Shows, this is as dog-friendly of a city as they get. While in Houston, go to the dog-friendly bar Cottonwood Houston for a pint. Houston is also packed with many dog parks, including Millie Bush Dog Park, Bay Area Dog Park, and Danny Jackson Family Dog Park. And if it’s a hot day, treat yourself and your pup to the elite swim club Rummy’s Beach Club. Yes, you can swim with your dog at Rummy’s!


Corpus Christi

There are many activities and outdoor dining and drinking spots for you and your pup in the Coastal Bend. Spend the afternoon at the heart of the city’s marina, where you can shop and dine outdoors at Harrison’s Landing, formerly Tavern on the Bay, with your pup by your side. Dogs are invited to play off-leash at Vishal Bhagat Dog Park, which is right near the ocean and McGee Beach. And if you want to check out the area’s botanicals, bring your pup along for a visit to sniff the roses at the South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center.

San Antonio

There are far too many dog-friendly activities in San Antonio to cover your ground in one trip. During your stay, choose a spot like Hotel Havana, where you and your pup will be treated like the kings and queens that you are. Brunch with your pup at the hotel’s riverside restaurant and lounge before heading out to The Friendly Spot for some drinks and good times at the pet-friendly ice house.

There’s plenty to see and do right here in your own Texas backyard. Plan a visit to one of these four pet-friendly Texas destinations for quality time with your pup.
