Dogs love beaches!

They love the freedom of running in the soft sand and wading into the water and some love to jump right into the cold New England ocean water. The problem is, that for most popular Bay State beaches they are not very Dog Friendly.

Some beaches allow dogs to roam free in the off season and some allow dogs on during the summer months with a leash while some beaches let dogs on the beach year round.
We have checked out 11 great beaches that allow dogs on the beach either Off Season or All Season

Hit the Beach!
