Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, & Fort Morgan

There are tons of options when it comes to dog parks in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. However, if you are looking to bring your dog to the beach, check out Fort Morgan Historic Site Bayside Beach.

When you visit Fort Morgan Historic Site Bayside Beach, your dog must be leashed at all times. You also are responsible for cleaning up after your pet.

Destin, Panama City Beach, & 30A

Dogs are not permitted on the beaches in Destin, so if you plan on bringing your pet on vacation, check out South Walton. Dogs are allowed on the beaches of 30A, however, you must have a permit to do so. Permitted dogs are allowed on the beach between the times of 3:30 pm and 8:30 am year-round. This ensures that when the beaches are packed full of people, your dog is avoiding the heat and crowds. Once guests start to head back to their rentals is when the dogs can come out and play!
