Dog Friendly Grand Haven, MI

If you are looking for a dog friendly weekend getaway, head up US 31 to Grand Haven. D and I spent a wonderful weekend in Grand Haven walking in wooded parks and a dog friendly beach.

The drive was an easy 4.5 hours up US 31. When you get into Michigan, 31 runs with I-194 and there is a nice rest stop for you and your dog. A great place to stay is the Holiday Inn. They have dog friendly rooms on the ground floor near a grassy area. The pet fee is $10 per dog per night. Up to two dogs can stay in each standard room. There are designated walking areas for dogs and complimentary treats are available. Special needs dogs are exempt from the pet fee.

Grand Haven City Beach is a dog friendly beach, and dogs can run free at the south end. A wonderful walking park is Duncan Park. You’ll see plenty of dogs strolling the streets of the picturesque town.

When your pup is pooped, but you still have some energy, put on your walking shoes and head to Rosy Mound natural area to see the dunes and an incredible pine forrest.

Here are a few selected photos from my trip. Let me know if you go!
