I feel so lucky to be living in Tampa, Florida with all the pet-friendly locations in this city. Kuma, my sassy corgi, is my best friend and I like to take her everywhere with me if I can. Thankfully, Tampa has numerous pet-friendly spots and these are my favorite places I like to take her with me:
Almost every retail store and restaurant at Hyde Park Village is pet friendly. It's so fun shopping with Kuma at West Elm or Lululemon. Kuma also loves all the attention and treats she gets from the shoppers and shop owners.
LOCATION: 744 South Village Circle, Tampa, FL
This place has the most amazing homemade ice cream and they have fun flavors like Eurotrash, Matt's Fatty Rolls and Grandma's Oreo. Kuma loves to get our share of the ice cream too, of course.
LOCATION: 6701 N Florida Ave, Tampa, FL
This coffee shop is very welcoming when it comes to your furry friends. Every time we visit, we see many owners happily enjoying their time with their dogs at the pet-friendly coffee shop. Ginger Beard Coffee has a great vibe and offers nitrogen-infused cold coffee brews on tap with interesting flavors.
LOCATION: 1208 E Kennedy Blvd, Ste 112, Tampa, FL
If you love to take long walks with your pup, Curtis Hixon Park is the perfect place. You can walk along Hillsborough River on the Riverwalk with gorgeous views of the Tampa skyline. There's also a dog park with fun little obstacles and you can enjoy brunch outdoors at Sono Cafe, part of Tampa Museum of Art.
LOCATION: 600 N Ashley Dr, Tampa, FL
If you love to enjoy beer while hanging out with your pup, Tampa Bay Brewing Company is an excellent location in Ybor City. They have a nice outdoor bar and open-air patio seating. Your dog can people watch the streets of Ybor while you enjoy your handcrafted beer.
LOCATION: 1600 E 9th Ave, Tampa, FL
7 | Sail Pavilion
Located in downtown Tampa, Sail Pavilion is Tampa's only 360 degree waterfront bar. You'll see locals and tourists frequent this place as it is the perfect place to watch the sunset as you sip on your cocktail. The friendly servers bring a water bowl for your pup and you can have a great time with fellow dog owners and their pups.
LOCATION: 333 S Franklin St, Tampa, FL
8 | Bo's Ice Cream
Bo's Ice Cream has been a Tampa favorite for over 60 years. Kuma especially loves Bo's because they make a cup of ice cream just for dogs with cute little mini bones. The humans can try the popular upside down banana split with vanilla & chocolate ice cream, strawberries, pineapples, bananas, nuts, whipped cream and cherry... and I think that's it. You can order through their drive-thru or enjoy the ice cream outdoors at their tables.
