Family Pet Friendly Resorts in Virginia Beach

by Nannie Kate

When you visit Virginia Beach, bring your pet along to walk with you on the beach. Virginia Beach allows leashed dogs on the beach all year except during the summer season, which runs roughly from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Bella Pizza on the beach has an outdoor seating area for both people and their pets. You can also get a special doggie ice cream treat with doggie biscuits at pet-friendly Bruster's Real Ice Cream. For a small deposit or fee, many hotels in Virginia Beach will welcome your pet.

Travelodge Virginia Beach Bay Beach

Your pets get to travel with you when you stay at the Travelodge Virginia Beach Bay Beach. An extra fee applies. A mini refrigerator and microwave come with each room, as does wireless Internet. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool that operates seasonally. Walk the short distance to the beach and the Lynnhaven Fishing Pier. Visit the Smokehouse and Cooler restaurant close by for a variety of beef, pork and chicken dishes. When you are out jogging first thing in the morning, stop by Dunkin' Donuts down the street for a cup of coffee and a little energy boost.
