Name a Better City for Pets by Mars Petcare and named a Top 5 Best City for Dog Lovers in the U.S. by LawnStarter, you can rest assured that visiting Alexandria, VA means you don’t have to leave Fido behind. With a deep-rooted culture of puppy love and pet-friendly hotels and restaurants, Alexandria truly rolls out the red carpet for four-legged visitors. Whether strolling through Old Town or Del Ray, you won’t get far before you see water bowls (and free treats) set out for four-legged companions. Alexandria’s adoration for man’s best friend has reached new heights with dog boutiques such as The Dog Park and two dog-friendly bars with dog parks, Barkhaus and Snouts & Stouts.
