Pet-Friendly Orange Beach

Even when you don’t need to worry about paying for boarding or a sitter, having pets along on vacation can still be a hassle. They need to be exercised and they need to be fed, meaning they demand a schedule.

Thankfully, in Orange Beach you can combine your exercise and eating times with those of your pet! Bring your dog along to a nature trail so they can dig some brand new smells! Take your dog with you to a pet-friendly restaurant and consider spoiling them with table scraps (it’s their vacation too, after all)! In Gulf Shores, it’s not hard to take your pet along and still stay on vacation schedule—all you need is a leash!


Have your dog be part of the fun by taking them to some of these places where you can both enjoy yourself!

Backcountry Trails

Also called “Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail,” this passage is like its own backdoor to Gulf State Park, famous for its beautiful scenery. And that’s just one of the trails accessible within Orange Beach—there are seven trails total, all dog friendly and surprisingly different. From the marshes to the dunes to the woods, the scenic Backcountry Trails showcase just how varied the Gulf Coast can be. Enjoy the ones nearest your vacation rental over and over, or make a nature-lover’s pilgrimage to all seven!

Orange Beach Waterfront Park

Another fine spot to enjoy the great outdoors, the Waterfront Park is in the northern part of Orange Beach, abutting Wolf Bay. If you just want to enjoy the Gulf Stream sunshine, head here for a picnic or for an hour or two of fishing from the pier. The scenic area’s paved walking paths also make it great for light exercise—for you and pooch too! Just remember to bring extra towels if your dog likes to swim with you!


If you’ve worked up an appetite, just imagine how your pet must feel! Take them to a pet-friendly restaurant like one of these so you can relax:

Cosmo’s Restaurant and Bar

Located on Alabama’s Coastal Connection not even a mile west of the Waterfront Park, this is a great stop to combine with an outing there. Cosmo’s describes itself as American, and their menu runs the gamut from mixed drinks to seafood to sandwiches.

Villaggio Grille

Off of Portage Creek and Foley Beach Express, this is another dog-friendly restaurant. It’s at The Wharf, so it’s a great spot to go browse some shops while walking your dog—if a place you like doesn’t open its doors to four-leggers, you can always come back the next day!

Orange Beach Pet Friendly Vacation Rentals and Activities

Ranging in size from two to three bedrooms and accommodating as many as eight guests, these roomy and cozy waterside pet friendly vacation rentals in Orange Beach AL feature bright and airy interiors with coastal chic décor, full-sized bathrooms, and fully-stocked kitchens complete with modern appliances, utensils, and cookware. The covered patios allow guest to take in the stunning Gulf Coast sunsets as they reflect over the shimmering waters nearby.

The pet friendly vacation rentals in Orange Beach AL also have amazing community features, including a resort-style pool, a scenic boardwalk path that overlooks the water, and quick and easy access to the local beach that’s just a short drive away—a mere seven minutes!

If you’re looking for Fido-friendly things to do around town, you’ll want to check out the local restaurants and beaches that cater to pets (dogs most of all). Orange Beach is home to two parks that are ideal for playing with your pet, including Orange Beach Dog Park, Orange Beach Waterfront Park, and Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail. When you’re hankering for some great local food, the convenient dog-friendly patio seating at The Beach House Kitchen and Cocktails, Bill’s By the Beach, Hog Wild BBQ, and Flying Harpoon might just sway you.
