To commemorate the fifth anniversary Pow! Wow! Long Beach, we’ve created a guide...
- Things To Do
- Food & Drink
- Plan Your Trip
Long Beach is a dog’s best friend! Where you’re welcome, so are your furry friends. Our hotels, restaurants, and attractions will not only lay out the mat for you, but also for those precious paws.
Whether you're in town for a staycation or a vacation, our hotels will let you check-in with your Chihuahua!

The Queen Mary, Hotel Maya, Hotel Current, Westin Long Beach, Residence Inn Long Beach Downtown, Hyatt Regency Long Beach, Hyatt Centric The Pike, and Hilton Long Beach will let you bring your beagles or your bulldogs along for the stay.
The Hilton Long Beach goes a-bone-and-beyond in terms of creating a dog-friendly culture. Their General Manager adopted a Cocker Spaniel/Poodle mix named Murphy who has become a mascot of sorts for the property. If you happen to see him around, be sure to say hello. And, if you’re jonesing for a cappuccino, be sure to ask for a puppuccino for Fido!Before you stay at any of the hotels listed here, be sure to check in with each property about their specific pet policies. Some allow for one friend, while others will let you bring a whole litter!
Long Beach knows how to chow down, and that includes restaurants that will say “bone-appetit”. Several restaurants in town will let paws on the patio and even offer your dogs a bite to eat!
Among the many restaurants that will let you wine and dine with your dog, Utopia, Café Sevilla, The Attic on Broadway, Restauration, and Beachwood BBQ are top dog. Each of these restaurants has a patio or an outdoor area for your dog to dine with you at. Belmont Shore is especially welcoming to your pet plus-ones, with almost every restaurant on 2nd Street being pawsitively welcoming.
If you’re looking for restaurants that will offer Fido a bite to eat, KC Branaghans, the Attic, and the Pie Bar, have special menus catered to your canine needs.
With 345 days of sunshine in Long Beach a year, the dog days are year round. Here are some places that you can explore the shore or the town with your terrier in tow:
Rosie’s Dog Beach
Located on four acres of beach in Belmont Shore, Rosie’s Dog Beach is the only legal, off-leash dog beach in Los Angeles County. In addition to being open year-round, Rosie’s Dog Beach hosts special events such as SoCal Corgi Beach Day annually.
Parks for our Puppy Pals
With the opening of Bixby Dog Park in late 2017, there are now 11 off-leash dog recreation parks in the city. Located in nearly every neighborhood, there are 11 acres of park space for dogs (and owners) to play.
