8 Awesome Pet Friendly Spots in Tampa, Florida

Hi! We’re Candy and Crystal. We’re sisters who grew up as military brats and spent the first half of our lives in Japan. The majority of our family resides in Japan, but we ventured out and have spent the second half of our lives mainly in the United States. We both love traveling and have always documented our travels, so we decided it was time to share our travel experiences with the rest of the world.

I feel so lucky to be living in Tampa, Florida with all the pet-friendly locations in this city. Kuma, my sassy corgi, is my best friend and I like to take her everywhere with me if I can. Thankfully, Tampa has numerous pet-friendly spots and these are my favorite places I like to take her with me:

1 | Hyde Park Village

Almost every retail store and restaurant at Hyde Park Village is pet friendly. It's so fun shopping with Kuma at West Elm or Lululemon. Kuma also loves all the attention and treats she gets from the shoppers and shop owners.

LOCATION: 744 South Village Circle, Tampa, FL
