Greenville is a very pet friendly community. It is not an uncommon site to see water bowls outside merchant doors along Main Street in downtown Greenville. Greenville CVB spokesperson, Jennifer Stillwell says the area also has a host of pet friendly hotels throughout Greenville City and County.
If visitors look for luxury accommodations and in-town walkability, the Hyatt Regency may be a good choice. It accepts two pets, up to 30-40 lbs. each. The first pet is $125 per stay with the next pet staying for $50 per stay. Just outside the Hyatt at nearby Roost restaurant in NOMA Square, visitors and their dogs will encounter “Yappy Hour.” On the second Wednesday of every month from 6:00-8:00 p.m., people bring their dogs and enjoy treats and pup-tinis for the dogs, live music, specialty drinks and “Yappetizer” specials at Roost.
Canine Corner at Cleveland Park is located along the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Both the trail and park make for great walking adventures with canine friends. If vet services are needed during a stay in town, the Cleveland Park Animal Hospital is just across the street from the dog park.
Two water parks—Otter Creek and Discover Island—shut down for four-legged friends to enjoy a fun-filled day of swimming in the park. These special days typically occur at the end of the summer season.
The Greenville Road Warriors hockey team sponsors “Pucks & Paws” once every year (this year on March 30) when hockey fans can bring dogs to the game at no extra cost! After the game, fans gather at the Greenville Beer Exchange where dogs are welcome, too. It has rotating taps, growlers, and more than 1,000 bottles of beer from all over the world for dog owners to enjoy. The Barkery Bistro caters to four-legged family members with original treats like “Puppy Crack”.
And, what trip would be complete without a shopping option? Paw Paws in downtown Greenville is lauded as the most artistic and expressive line of nylon ribbon collars, leashes and harnesses in the pet industry. Its products are handcrafted in Greenville, and are sold in specialty shops throughout the United States.
