6 of the Best Pet-Friendly Things to Do in Savannah, GA

Explore the Squares

Savannah is home to 22 historic squares that are just waiting to be explored by you and your furry friend! As long as your pet is on a leash, they are more than welcome. Walk beneath the trees draped in Spanish moss as you take in the sights of statues and stunning architecture. Relax with your pup on one of the many benches and watch the people walk by. Here are some of our favorites:

  • Pulaski Square Surrounded by historic homes, the shade of Pulaski Square is a great respite from the Georgia sun. This small square is named after General Casimir Pulaski, a Polish-born Revolutionary War hero who died from his wounds during the Siege of Savannah in 1779. Walk among the beautiful Italianate and Greek Revival architecture for gorgeous sights!
  • Wright Square- Wright Square is almost as old as the city of Savannah! This square is one of the first of the original four laid out by Oglethorpe in 1733. Walk through the square and read about the monuments, but be careful at night! Many believe that this square is haunted.
  • Oglethorpe Square- Located right next to Presidents’ Quarters Inn, Oglethorpe Square is one of the original squares in our city. Because of its convenient location by our inn, you’ll love taking your dog on walks through the grass.
  • Troup Square- Troup Square is commonly known as “Dog Bone Square” because of its elaborate pet-friendly fountain. Although it is small, it is still fun!

Visit the City Market

The City Market is a must-see during your Savannah vacation! During the day, the street is bustling with people (and dogs!) as they shop at boutiques, browse art in galleries, and enjoy live entertainment. At night, the market is full of people enjoying drinks and delicious cuisine. Walk around with your leashed pup, then take a break and enjoy a drink on one of the many outdoor patios dogs are allowed on. There is even a doggie fountain in Ellis Square right next door!

Walk Broughton Street shopping with dog

Broughton Street is a pup paradise! Nearly all of the restaurants on this street have outdoor seating your dog allowed at along with water bowls. Walk around and window shop at the mix of local boutiques and name-brand stores. Make sure you stop at Leopold’s Ice Cream for a sweet treat. They even have a pup-approved sundae topped with a biscuit!

Learn About History at the Wormsloe State Historic Site

Savannah is known for its rich history, and you can learn all about it with your pet when you visit the Wormsloe State Historic Site. Explore the breathtaking grounds of this 1700s plantation. The miles of walking trails will bring you past marshes under moss-covered oaks for stunning views. You’ll even get to see the remains of the oldest building in the city!

Take a Tour

Plantation Carriage Company and Old Savannah Tours, Inc. are available for pet owners with small dogs that can sit on their lap. If you’re bringing your pet on a Plantation Carriage Company tour, they must be under 20 pounds. Old Savannah Tours allow pets under 25 pounds!

Enjoy These Pet-Friendly Restaurants in Savannah dog at restaurant

Once you come to our city, you’ll see it is very clear that we love pets. You can even take your pup out for a bite to eat at these pet-friendly restaurants in Savannah! To stay at your table, your pup has to be kept on a leash and must be well-behaved around others. Keep in mind that your canine companion will probably be around other dogs while you eat! Let Fido be pampered with fresh water bowls and potential treats as you enjoy our Southern cooking. Here are some of our favorites:

J. Christopher’s

Whether you’re looking for a hearty breakfast or delicious lunch, you’ll find it at J. Christopher’s. This popular spot is known for serving up the classics like French toast and shrimp and grits for breakfast and burgers and sandwiches for lunch. Pups are more than welcome on their spacious patio and always get a water bowl!

Vic’s on the River

If you’re looking for upscale pet-friendly restaurants in Savannah, we recommend going somewhere like Vic’s on the River. You’ll get to enjoy Southern favorites like buttermilk fried chicken and jumbo crab cakes. The service is spectacular, and it is right next to the river so you can take a walk with your pup afterwards. Keep in mind that they do not take reservations for the patio, so you might have to wait to be seated. However, the amazing food is worth it!
