Rockport is a great place to bring the whole family – including your furry friend! Your dog will have a blast playing on the beach, running in the dog park, and even sitting outside with you at a delicious restaurant. The Rockport beach has a small section that allows dogs right before the paid area of the beach. Here you can swim with your dog and go fishing from the public fishing pier. The Port Aransas beach is also pet friendly and only a 20 minute drive and ferry ride away.
Another great place to bring your dog is the Rockport Dog Park. Located inside Memorial park, the off leash dog park has separate sections for big dogs and small dogs. There are also great hiking trails that you and your dog can enjoy together.
A few restaurants in Rockport allow dogs on their patio. Paradise Key is a great seafood restaurant that serves delicious fish, shrimp, and cocktails. They have a nice pet friendly patio on the water with an outside bar and live music. Moon dogs also allows pets on their patio. Enjoy fresh fish tacos, burger, beer, and more!
