I know my dog loves going to the dog beach in Ocean beach. The area is huge allowing him to run in the sand and the water while my wife and I can keep our eyes on him. MSN recently highlighted dog parks and beaches throughout the country and of course ocean beach made the list:
San Diego, Calif.
Sometimes a dog just has to go to the beach. Soak in some rays, get in a swim, dig in the sand. At gorgeous Ocean Beach, there’s a strip of sand and water set aside especially for dogs and people to play together, off leash and loving it, 24 hours a day.
When the waves are up, you’ll see surfers out at Dog Beach Break, where the famous Rocky the Surfing Dog once rode the waves (as recounted in the 1994 film “Endless Summer II”). Dogs have been frolicking there since at least 1972, when the town council formally recognized it, making Dog Beach one of the oldest leash-free dog parks in the nation.
Where is your favorite dog friendly area in San Diego?
