A Day At Huntington Dog Beach
If you live in LA and are a dog lover, you MUST visit The Huntington Dog Beach. It’s a stretch of beautiful beach where dogs can run free of leashes; it’s a slice of doggie heaven on Earth. I recently took a trip with my husband and pooch, Hayden, for a sunset picnic. We brought a blanket and basket full of food and just sat around taking in our picturesque surroundings. It was perfect.
The dog beach is open every day from 6a until 10p and is free to the public. The rules are pretty simple: maintain control of your dog at all times and of course pick up after them. Besides that, it’s a pretty laid back place that both you and your “best friend” will surely love.
Tips on picnicking? Well, it’s a dog beach, so sit far from other people with dogs or chances are you’ll be surrounded pretty quickly. Bring lots of salad options and a protein you’re ok eating at room temperature. Add in your favorite dessert and a refreshing beverage, like S. Pellegrino sparkling water, and you’re ready to go. Perfect for a date night, first date or family outing!
