Pet-Friendly Places in Destin
While our Destin vacation homes offer plenty of onsite activities and things to do, the beaches along 30A have an ordinance in place that prohibits dogs during the day. So if you’re looking for something else to do with your group and the pooch, these are a few dog-friendly spots in Destin.
Destin Dog Park
The Destin Dog Park is located between Commons Dr. and Indian Bayou Trail and offers three acres of space for your dog to run around. There is a separate space for small dogs and large dogs, as well as water stations for both dogs and humans. Let the pooch enjoy the wide open grassy area, or relax in the shade. The park is open from sunrise to sunset.
Alaqua Unleashed Bark Park
Alaqua Unleashed Bark Park is Walton County’s largest secured, off-leash dog park. There are separate areas for large and small dogs, and features a large shaded area, puppy pools, and plenty of seating. The Alaqua Unleashed Bark Park is right off JD Miller Rd.
Henderson Beach State Park
While pooches aren’t allowed on the beaches at Henderson Beach State Park, they are allowed on the nature trails. Make sure you have a leash that is no longer than six feet long here.
Destin Harbor Boardwalk
The Destin Harbor Boardwalk is a great place to roam and explore, and your on-leash dog is welcome to join. This mile-long boardwalk features plenty of dog-friendly restaurants as well.
Village of Baytowne Wharf
Dogs are also welcome at the Village of Baytowne Wharf. This venue features shopping, dining, and entertainment. Check their calendar for live music and other outdoor events.
