Dog Friendly Beaches

A day at the beach is always better with your furry friend in tow, but sadly, dogs aren’t welcome at all beaches. In fact, many beaches don’t allow dogs at all and if they do, often they’re only permitted on leashes. At Roomer, we believe in man’s best friend’s right to frolic freely on the sandy shores, which is why we’ve compiled this handy list of dog friendly beaches around the U.S.
