I am always looking for places to take my dogs. This will be a place for me to post my discoveries of pet friendly places in Hampton Roads, VA--parks, restaurants, and whatever else we find.

Historic Jamestown, VA
This morning we went with my husband's photography club to visit Historic Jamestown. Historic Jamestown is the site of the first permanent English settlement in America.
It costs $10 to visit and dogs are welcome. They can't go inside the Visitor's Center, though, so you need someone else to go inside and purchase your tickets for you. This weekend was a free weekend.
You cross over a bridge to get to the area where they are still excavating the old Jamestown fort and settlement. Sammy is barking, as usual!
This obelisk was built in 1907 to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the landing at Jamestown.
We broke away from the photography group and went off by ourselves. Lots of paths to walk on for the dogs.
This stick structure was the barracks.
There are also paths along the James River and you can watch the Jamestown Ferry going back and forth to Smithfield. You can get lunch or a snack at the Dale House Cafe; and dogs are welcome on the patio.
Sammy enjoys sightseeing!
Hey, Pocahontas is trying to get away with my dogs!
Wish you were here,
