While there are plenty of dog-friendly places in South Walton, you can only walk your dog on the beach with a permit.
If you are a resident here or property owner in Walton County, you can register your pet with a permit to walk your dog on the beach.
If you don’t have a permit (meaning if you aren't a resident or property owner), Here is a list of things to do and places to bring your pet.
Seaside Farmers Market
Every Saturday 9-12 Rain or Shine
Rosemary Farmers Market
Every Sunday 9-1
Several outdoor venues such as Baytowne Wharf allow you to walk around with your dog on a leash and enjoy the events together. Point Washington State Forest and Topsail Hill Preserve State Park are great places to go hiking or biking with your dog. They’ll love the fresh air and explorable trails! (Note: dogs are not allowed on the state park beaches, though).
If your dog is a water-lover, take them to one of the coastal dune lakes and do some stand-up paddleboarding.
