Nashville is one of the best towns in the country. The friendly neighborhood is welcoming to tourists and new residents alike and the landlords are generally friendly and accommodating when it comes to rent prices. Overall, it’s a great place to live in.

The hospitality of Nashville certainly extends to pets as well, as the town is filled with pet-friendly places to explore. Here are some of the best pet-friendly places in Nashville that you can visit.

1. A Walk In The Neighborhood

If you have a dog, cat, or any other active pet, you would likely want to take them out for walks. And the best way to do this is to just wander around in the streets. Most of the areas in Nashville are pet-friendly, and you can just explore the town with your fur baby without any issues at all. It would also be a great physical activity for both you and your pet.

2. Urban Grub

Chef Edgar Pendley has created a diverse dinner menu for Urban Grub that has something for everyone. Whether you’re in the mood for some country classics like shrimp and grit or something Southwestern like enchiladas, you’ll likely find it here.

The restaurant also has an in-house curing room that enables it to serve the freshest beef, pork, goat, lamb, and more, making it a heaven for meat lovers. And yet, the best thing about Urban Grub is that it will treat your pet like royalty. Not only are pets allowed both indoors and outdoors, but they’re also served with bowls of fresh water and a selection of treats by the chef.

3. Double Dogs

This relatively small outlet in downtown Nashville is a popular spot for dogs and their humans. Double Dogs features a small outdoor patio where you’ll likely come across a number of other dedicated pet owners with their fur babies in tow.

If you’re planning on taking your dog here, you need to ensure that it’ll do well in the company of other dogs. While you enjoy bar favorite fast foods such as pizza, wings, and Black Angus burgers, your dog will be served complimentary treats and a freshwater bowl.

Any list of pet-friendly places would be incomplete without a park. And a trip to the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park is undoubtedly a must for your fur baby. This popular attraction serves as an urban green space, a historical attraction, and an event venue all in one. After you’ve explored the area enough or are tired of walking around with your pet, you can pay a visit to the Nashville Farmers Market right next door, which is also a fun place where you can take your pets.
