Our selection of dog-friendly neighborhoods

Coconut Grove

Ranked as one of Miami’s most dog-friendly neighborhoods, Coconut Grove is full of green spaces. There is a wide array of parks to choose from, such as David T. Kennedy, Blanche Park, or Peacock Park, where you can spend quality time with your dog in a beautiful, quiet outdoor space. Some restaurants (try out Lokal) are also dog-friendly and even offer a doggy menu! 


Don’t let the bustle of Brickell mislead you…despite what you might think, Brickell is actually a dog-friendly neighborhood. You can walk in Southside Park, Brickell Key Park, or along the River Walk Trail with your companion, or you can go shopping with them at Brickell City Centre. 

Bal Harbour

Bal Harbour is a quiet neighborhood where you can enjoy time with your dog at Haulover Park or take them to the nearby beach for a swim. Bal Harbour Shops is a dog-friendly shopping mall where you can find retail stores and restaurants.

South Beach

South Pointe Park is the perfect place for a walk along the bay with your dog. You can also take them to the beach, but only after sundown. Many restaurants in South Beach offer terrace seating and water for your dog so you can keep him or her with you all the time.
