Pet-Friendly Hotels, Restaurants and Parks Make Austin, Texas Vacation Friendly

Austin, Texas is famous for many things. Their music scene, their barbeque, The University of Texas Longhorns, Lake Austin, great weather, food, shopping and people – to name but a few. But did you also know that Austin is one of the dog-friendliest cities in the United States? Austinites love their dogs and this shows as many restaurants and bars in some of the hippest neighborhoods allow dogs to enjoy the scene right alongside their owners.

Right off the bone, we’ve got to mention Freddie’s Place. This Austin establishment is a bar, restaurant, live music venue and pet friendly establishment that rocks the house every night of the week. And what is better than live music, a cold beer, and some wings with your trusty hound at your feet?  Nothing, and Freddie’s Place is tops with all of our dogs.  In fact, a quick perusal of review sites such as yelp reveals that Austin in general is pretty laid back when it comes to dogs. If the restaurant has a patio, it’s a doggone good bet that your dog is as welcome there as you are.

Sixth Street, SoCo (South Congress to non-Austinites) and other happening areas of Texas’ State Capital are dog friendly to varying degrees. As mentioned above, if it has a patio you are good to go. Sixth Street is Austin’s version of Bourbon Street and is packed with revelers pretty much all of the time, so use your own best judgment when it comes to your dog’s temperament and crowds.

BB Rovers Bar & Grill is another venue featuring live music, food and drink that is dog friendly. At Club de Ville in downtown Austin dogs are allowed inside the restaurant as well as on the large patio. In fact, the list of dog friendly establishments is so lengthy it is not a stretch to imagine that fewer restaurants do not allow dogs than do!
