Dog's Day Out in Baltimore, MD
This small park is a little off the beaten path but is a real gem to locals and vistors alike. Take a walk with the park on one side and the harbor on the other. Take a break and take in the sea breeze and watch the passing ships and tug boats while fishing or having a picnic. There is a fenced dog park where your pup can romp around with the other dogs off his or her leash. Take a visit to the Maryland Korean War Memorial which is located within the park and take pleasure in the fact that unlike many other area parks there usually seems to be ample street and lot parking around the park.
Both you and your dog will enjoy stepping back into history at this hotel, centered in the Fells Point neighborhood that Edgar Allan Poe called home the Admiral Fell Inn is so cozy you may not want to leave.

For no additional fee, your pup can enjoy the history and take in a ghost tour as well. But you might want to plan the tour on your last night, or for those who like to be scared try the tour on your first night.
