Some of our favorite places to walk with our dogs include the Hawthorne trail, San Felasco State Park, Devil’s Millhopper, the Hogtown Greenway, and Ring Park — and there are many more!
Some of our favorite parks have nice trails as well, including Westside, Northeast, and Kanapaha Park.
Kanapaha Botanical Gardens is a great place to stroll with your dog as well — there’s a small admission fee (or you can purchase an annual membership).
Places to stay in St. Augustine (and nearby):
St Augustine Beach House Hotel in Villano Beach has big nice rooms, small three story hotel on the dog- friendly beach. ( You walk down the access road right there because of the dunes.) Dog-friendly restaurants within walking distance. Fenced balconies.

Dogs allowed but there is an 80 lb. total dog weight limit for a studio. Dogs are allowed on the beach at Sanibel but not Captiva. Many dog friendly restaurants on Sanibel.
