The city of Austin is a great city to live in. There's plenty of things to do to, like shopping, dining, and live entertainment, and many places allow you to bring your beloved pet. So instead of leaving your puppy at home next time you explore the city, bring them with you! Read on to see some of the dog-friendly places by our apartments near McKinney Falls.
No list would be complete without McKinney Falls itself. You and your pet can take walks on the various trails throughout the park, and splash around in the falls on a warm day. While McKinney Falls Park makes for a fantastic day outdoors, they do have some rules regarding dogs: pets must be on a leash, you must always be with your pet, dogs aren't allowed in state buildings, dogs cannot swim in designated beach areas, and all dogs must be up to date on vaccinations.
Located on Rainey Street, Banger’s is a must-visit for all dog owners. Not only does Banger’s serve drool-worthy food that you will enjoy, they also offer special menu items for dogs. The “Woof wurst' treat made from sausage is something every dog will love. They also offer a playpen for dogs to play in during your visit. Want to keep your dog by you? Banger's has plenty of outdoor seating so you and your pup can sit and enjoy your meal together.
Want to celebrate your dog's barkday? Located on Burnet Road, Yard Bar is a bar, restaurant, and dog park, all in one! Yard Bar is a great place for dog owners to get together, enjoy a nice cold drink, and watch their pups make friends. There are some posted rules for the dogs: they must be over four months old, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and in good health, and they must have a collar with their license and contact information on it. The Yard Bar offers passes in the form of one day, five days, monthly, or annual membership.
