Life's a Beach

Surf, sand, and summertime for you and your dog

Nothing says "summertime" quite like a day at the beach. Whether you live near one or decide to visit one during vacation, a day at the beach is double the fun when your best buddy joins you. From sand dunes to rocky coastlines, there's plenty to discover. This year, if you're looking for a great beach escape, here are a few places worth checking out.

Samoa Dunes Recreation Area
Samoa, CA
707-825-2300
www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/arcata/samoa.html
Sprawling across more than 300 acres, this recreation area is a great destination for you and your dog. The recreation area offers 1.5 miles of beaches, which means you have all the room you need to romp, run, or relax. The terrain varies from sandy dunes to rocky overhangs, providing lots of ­opportunities for exploration. Best of all, well-behaved dogs don't require a leash, although the park requires that you carry one with you at all times.

Sunset Bay State Park
Coos Bay, OR
541-888-4902
www.oregonstateparks.org/park_100.php
Protected by towering sea cliffs, these beautiful sandy ­beaches are the perfect place to fish or frolic with your four-legged friend. If you want to walk on less sandy ground for a while, explore the hiking trails that lead to nearby Shore Acres and Cape Arago State Parks, where you'll both get a breathtaking view of the area's coastal forests and ocean views. Don't forget to bring your pal's leash to this park—safety first!

Cape San Blas
Cape San Blas, FL
www.thecapeescape.com/Pets.html
This beautiful spot in the Florida Panhandle is one of the best places for fun in the sun! Sandy dunes and 10 miles of sugar-white sand make Cape San Blas a great place for ­surfing or sunning. Pet stations along the beach make ­cleaning up after your best friend a breeze, and dogs are ­welcomed with open arms.
