Of course, all dogs need to be on a leash, but the entire city of Savannah allows pets pretty much everywhere. There are plenty of parks throughout the gorgeous town and most of them welcome pooches of all sizes. You can find water bowls for your dog at parks like Ellis Square and Troup Square. Mother Matilda Beasley Dog Park in the Historic District is a great place to go for some off the leash fun. There is even a dog station for bathing. Downtown Savannah has the largest dog park in the city and it has separate areas for different size dogs.

If your pooch is less than 25 pounds, they can join you on the Old Savannah Tours Trolley Tours. If you have a smaller dog that is less than 20 pounds, you can take them with you on a horse and carriage ride with the Plantation Carriage Company. Most of the walking tours around the Historic District and the rest of the city like Ghost Tours in Savannah are also dog friendly. The Georgia State Railroad Museum is outdoors and a lot of fun for the whole family, even your four-legged family member is allowed.

As long as your dog is on a leash and you obey the laws, you are not going to have any problem bringing your dog along experiencing the southern charm of Savannah.
