I'm planning a trip to PCB during Thanksgiving week with my family (2 adults, a 7 year old and a 13 year old) and our 1 year old medium sized dog. I've found accomodations that allow the dog, no problem and have also researched the beaches as far as dog friendliness goes, so I have an idea of what we are getting into on that front.
That said, the dog absolutely LOVES water. We are from Ohio and we hike at least once a week with her and always encounter creeks/small rivers that she loves to take a swim in. I was wondering if anyone who lives in Panama City could tell me if there are any local/county/off the beaten path parks that 1)allow dogs and 2) have creeks/lakes/slow rivers that the dog would be able to take a dip in? This may seem like a strange post...but I would love to be able to do some Florida hiking and also allow the dog to have a good time with what she does best. I know the beach might be hit or miss weather wise...so looking for some alternate outdoor activities to entertain us all.
Any thoughts out there??
