Things to do

Fall Fun with Fido

Just a Few of My Favorite Things:

1. My dog
2. The Fall Season
3. Madison, Georgia

IMG_1212And the more I thought about it… those things go together quite well! Madison is such a fun place to explore and who better to explore with than your four legged friend?! Read along for details on the cool “Fido Friendly” activities in Madison & Morgan County!

1. Take a stroll back in time & bring the leash!
Madison’s streets are lined with historic antebellum homes and fascinating stories. The best way to learn Madison’s past is to download the FREE App “Madison GA, Downtown Tour” developed by the Madison-Morgan Convention & Visitors Bureau.

The first stop on the 1.5 mile audio tour is Madison’s Old Fire Station which now serves as the Madison Welcome Center! Get started here where a local expert can help you download the app and answer any questions you may have.

Madison’s very own walking tour!

 

 

Be sure to grab a Visitor’s Guide and don’t hesitate to bring your dog inside! The Welcome Center welcomes all four legged friends!

Located at 115 E. Jefferson Street and open 360 Days a Year!

 

 

 

 

2. Grab a bite to eat!
Madison is full of restaurants with outdoor seating that can accommodate you and your pup.  The Madison Produce Co. & Deli  located in the heart of downtown is a particularly special place with fun menu items. If you’re an adventurous eater we recommend trying the Burnin’ Sherman (pepper jelly, pimento cheese, and bacon-y goodness on fresh bread). Though your dog may thank you for a bite of that bacon, there’s actually an item on the menu just for him! Everyone’s favorite popsicle King of Pops now makes King of Pups which can be purchased at Madison Produce!

3. Drop your Dog at The Fetch House for some Puppy Pampering!
The Fetch House located in Downtown Madison is the perfect place to pick up a new accessory for your pooch OR drop them off for a grooming service.

If your dog is in need of a haircut or just a bath, the team at the Fetch House has it covered. Take this time to hit the shops and buy yourself something special or head to one of the various downtown spas for a relaxing treatment of your own!

 

 

4. Adventure at Hard Labor Creek State Park_
As the second largest state park in Georgia, Hard Labor Creek offers countless activities for outdoor enthusiasts. Hit the trails or take a kayak out on the water. Stay on site in a pet friendly cabin!
