Here in Dog City USA the possibilities are endless for activities you can share with your dog! Most trails in the mountains make for dog-friendly hikes. Many include scenic mountain streams, waterfalls and magnificent views from overlooks. If your pup prefers more level terrain, spend some time at the fun Wagbar, a combination of dog park with interactive, engagement features and people bar serving a variety of snacks and libations. 


If you and your dog love to paddle, check out Asheville’s Adventure Corridor and rent a canoe or kayak and paddle along the French Broad River. There are many pet friendly breweries and restaurants you can put into along your route as well as enjoy within the city. In fact, so many restaurants welcome pets, it’s easy to choose where you and your fur kid will dine. One place, Posana, has an outdoor patio and a delectable pet menu offering a 3-course gourmet meal. And Asheville is home to some of the most pet friendly hotels and mountain cabins in the nation.  


If you love to wake up surrounded by nature, accommodations along Asheville’s Adventure Corridor offer cabins nestled next to lakes and woodland areas where you and your dog can enjoy the great Smokies. In the heart of Asheville, the Aloft is super per friendly. From the dog motifs in the downstairs entrance, to the adoptable dog being cared for in the lobby so he or she can find their forever home, the Aloft, like the mountains, takes pet friendly to new heights.
