And the great news is, more and more hotels, restaurants, and even beaches are allowing and accommodating pets, making it easier than ever to bring fido along on your travels! Daytona Beach has a nice variety of spots, restaurants, cafes, and even a dog beach in the area, so your pup can come along with you all day and sleep peacefully at night.

Here are The Shores Resort & Spa we allow up to two pets, less than 50 pounds each, per room per night, with an applicable pet fee. We invite you to stay in one of our pet designated rooms, which come complete with a bed, treats, and food and water dishes.

Pets are welcome in the lobby, corridors, and elevators, as long as they are in a carrier or on a leash. Some area restrictions do apply. The most convenient spot for a walk is called Frank Rendon Park, which is next door just south of our resort. When left unattended in a guest room, pets must be crated, and supervision is recommended at all times. Once you’re all settled in, you’ll want to get more familiar with the area and all of the fun pet friendly activities to enjoy!

An awesome first stop on your list should be a trip to Smyrna Dunes Park, the closest nearby dog friendly beach. Located in New Smyrna Beach, the dunes are great for walking on the elevated boardwalks, taking in all of the unique natural sights, and swimming in the ocean. There are many picnic areas, pavilions, and an observation tower for extended views. The natural environment provides a unique opportunity to bird watch, and observe many other creatures in their natural habitats.

A fun, closer alternative is Lighthouse Point Park, which is about 15 minutes away from the resort. The park is located at the southern tip of Ponce Inlet. The undisturbed lands have been preserved for all to enjoy, and the natural beauty of the area is immediately evident. With many trails, wildlife, fishing, swimming, and more, it makes for an excellent afternoon of enjoying the sights and sunshine.

After enjoying the park and beach activities, you’re bound to be hungry and wanting to relax. There are many pet friendly cafes and restaurants near The Shores Resort & Spa. A couple guest favorites include the amazing food, cold drinks and relaxed atmosphere at Sloppy Joe’s, LuLu’s Oceanside Grill and pet friendly patio, as well as the great food at Boondock’s Restaurant, which also includes a pet patio.
