The Finger Lakes region is very dog friendly so you can have a fun time together!
All the State Parks allow leashed dogs. The only trail where dogs are not allowed is the gorge trail at Watkins Glen State Park but they are allowed on the rim trail.
Most of the wineries and breweries allow dogs on their decks and patio’s and some of them have live music during weekends. Our Golden Retrievers Floyd and Sally are regular guests at the Buttonwood Winery, Americana Winery and Brewery, the Grist iron Brewery, Lucas Winery, Wagners Winery and Atwater Winery just to name a few!
There are various restaurants that allow dogs on their outside seating areas. O’Malleys and the Busy Bee, situated on Cayuga Lake have nice affordable food.
Ithaca has a spacious dog park with a section for small dogs and large dogs.
