Dog-friendly San Francisco Bay Area

San Francisco Bay Area

The 9-county San Francisco Bay Area just may be the most dog-friendly region in the world. From the coastal counties of San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma and San Mateo where you'll find beautiful beaches to the hip, urban vibe with lots of canine-accommodating amenities in Oakland and the East Bay, this is the place!

The Bay Area is also your gateway to the beautiful wine country featuring Sonoma County, Napa Valley, the Livermore Valley and the Suisun Valley Wineries where everyone, two-legged and four, is welcome. Looking for a reasonably-priced place to stay while wine-tasting, check out Vacaville.

The very dog-friendly East Bay Regional Park District is partnering with Outdoor Afro to commemorate Juneteenth by waiving park entry fees on Saturday, June 19, 2021. Juneteenth is an annual recognition of the 250,000 enslaved Black Americans in Texas who were notified of their freedom on June 19, 1865, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect.

“There is no better place than parks to reflect on Juneteenth, the end of slavery, and today’s ongoing social justice issues,” said Park District Board President Dee Rosario. “The District embraces diversity, inclusion and promotes equal access for all.” Learn more heremore »
