Located on the Chesapeake Bay waterfront, Annapolis, Maryland is a beautiful city to explore with your dog. With brick-paved streets, historic buildings around every corner, and plenty of great food, simply walking around downtown Annapolis with your dog can be fun. To make your vacation even more memorable, read on to learn about a few of our favorite pet friendly Maryland places to take dogs in Annapolis.
Cruises on The Bay
One of the most exciting things you can do with your dog in Annapolis is hop aboard one of the Cruises on The Bay by Watermark Annapolis day cruises. Cruises on the Bay allows well behaved dogs on leash onboard.
View Annapolis’ historic beauty from the water on one of Cruises on The Bay’s relaxing tour boats. Enjoy the sea breeze during the summertime, too—the water can be up to 10 degrees cooler than downtown in the summertime! While you relax onboard, learn about Annapolis’ history, the US Naval Academy, and the people of Annapolis. Cruises on The Bay offers a variety of different tours daily, making it easy to include in pet friendly vacations to Maryland.
Quiet Waters Park
Situated between the South River and Harness Creek, Quiet Waters Park is 340 acres of beautiful waterfront beach, forests, grassy fields, picnic areas, and children’s playgrounds.
Quiet Waters Park features a dog park and dog beach where your pup can enjoy running off-leash. Both areas are on the South River end of the park by the picnic area. Although Quiet Waters Park is on the southernmost end of Annapolis, it’s well worth checking out for an afternoon of picnicking and off-leash fun in the water.
Bark & Bean
After your dog gets nice and dirty at Quiet Waters Park, take them to Bark & Bean, Annapolis’ only dog wash and coffee bar. Bark & Bean will wash your pup while you grab an afternoon pick-me-up, or you can opt for the self-wash station.
Bark & Bean also sells toys, treats, and supplies in case you forgot anything at home. The atmosphere inside Bark & Bean is quaint and it will be sure to help you and your dog reset after a fun day outside in Annapolis.
