World's Largest Garage Sale. Plenty of dogs roamed the sidewalks, enjoying the event, so it was great to see such a pet friendly vendor. Many dogs took advantage of the offerings.
I've been thinking, is my town pet friendly? I live in a small city in upstate New York. There are no dog parks in my community, although I know of some in neighboring areas. I looked up and found several hotels that do allow dogs, with various different policies. I don't take my dog to restaurants or shops locally, but here are a few attractions in the area that allow dogs:
Hudson River Pedestrian Bridge: 650 foot connecting Albany's historic riverfront to the Corning Preserve welcomes leashed dogs to enjoy the stroll and the views.
Howe Caverns: Leashed dogs are allowed in all above-ground cave areas and walking tours. Dogs are not allowed in the caves.
Stuyvesant Plaza: 60 store shopping mall. Dogs are welcome to explore this outdoor mall, and it is up to the individual shop owners if dogs are allowed in the stores.
Albany Riverfront Park: Offers a boat launch, bike trail and amphitheater. Leashed dogs are allowed in the park, but are not allowed during special events.
