East Bay Area

East Bay Area

Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano counties are collectively referred to as the East Bay. We add to that partners Tri-Valley and the cities of Oakland and Vacaville. Recreational opportunities with dogs find high expression in the East Bay Regional Park District, which includes 1,200 miles of trails in Contra Costa and Alameda counties.
East Bay
Solano County is filled with farms, wineries, wildlife areas and coastal trails, all dog-friendly and ready for you and your dog to explore together. The city of Vacaville has a pack of dog-friendly restaurants and lodging properties and the historic town of Benicia has been named one of the nation’s most accommodating dog-friendly towns.
