Dog-Friendly Things To Do In Portland, Oregon
If you’re looking to take a fun road trip with your furry friend, look no further than Portland, Oregon. With the nation’s highest dog park per capita, 33 in total, it’s clear that Portland loves its dogs. There are an abundance of pet-friendly restaurants, bars, parks, and accommodations to find in the City of Roses, so it’s not surprising that Portland is regularly named among the most dog-friendly cities in the United States.
And what’s not to love? Dogs have been known to have positive effects on the mental and physical well-being of their owners, from reducing depression to improving heart health. Portland’s history of urban planning has purposefully turned wasted lots into green spaces to clean up the city, as well as draw its residents out and encourage an active urban lifestyle. The city continues to plan and develop to benefit its dog-lovers.
