Florida Keys Are Pet Friendly
Pets are people too, so to vacation in the Florida Keys, you don’t want to leave anyone behind!
In our islands, activities like paddle boarding, kayaking, boating and bicycling are popular with our four-legged friends along for the ride.
Many Florida Keys accommodations offer pet-friendly amenities, some with pet programs that even feature animal beds and lifejackets, cooling water bowls and collar charms, or their very own "Paw Happy Hour" complete with “puptails” and “yappetizers.”
Monroe County code (encompassing all the Florida Keys and its municipalities) requires a dog be leashed and under your direct control at all times, in public places.
Before you visit a business establishment, please always verify that they are still dog-friendly, as policies and management of an establishment (such as attractions, open-air eateries, parks, beaches) change frequently.
Look for a “Pet-Friendly” paw icon for businesses in each region of the Keys!
