Start your day at any of our fine pet friendly businesses to eat breakfast with your pet while watching the sun come up over beautiful Flagler Beach.
After breakfast why not get some sand between those paws by heading down to the ocean!? Just make sure to stay between 10th street South and 10th street North.
When it’s time for lunch take your pick from any of our beachfront restaurants, enjoy their outdoor seating and lounge in the sun while enjoying a glass of something cool and of course a refreshing bowl for your furry companion!
