Dog-Friendly Activities in Provincetown

We love four-legged friends at our boutique Providence hotel AWOL and have several rooms that are dog-friendly (please let the staff know when you're making a reservation and review our pet policies. There are so many activities to enjoy with your dog in Provincetown, from miles of sandy beach, great walking paths, and restaurants and bars that allow dogs on the patio. Once you've gotten Fido's dog bed moved in (or let us know if you need to borrow one), hit the town with this list of dog-friendly activities in Provincetown for a great weekend away.

Several of our favorite Provincetown restaurants and cafés are dog-friendly. Grab a cup of coffee at Wired Puppy—with a name like that, you know they love dogs. Located in downtown Provincetown, this is the perfect spot to stop into while strolling the strip with your dog. Known for its freshly-baked muffins, you can get a treat for both you and your pup. Many Commercial Street restaurants also welcome dogs on the patio. A few of our favorites are The Canteen, Bubalas by the Bay, and Patio. Sitting on Commercial Street people watching is a quintessential P'town experience.

For some exercise, head to one of P'town's dog-friendly beaches. Herring Cove Beach is a short 5-minute drive west of our hotel AWOL. Leashed dogs are welcome, and you can walk for miles on this west-facing stretch of sandy shore. With a view of two lighthouses, you'll enjoy the scenery as much as your dog does. Dogs are also welcome off-leash at town beaches, but must be leashed within the National Seashore. If you'd like your dog to get his kicks out off-leash, head to Pilgrim Bark Park, the town's only dog park.

Finally, don't miss Paws & Whiskers, a pet store and bakery. You can pick up some specialty dog treats and a new toy to memorialize your trip to Cape Cod. Between sightseeing and people watching, you're sure to have a great trip to Provincetown with your dog in tow.
