If you are a dog owner in Long Beach, California, one of the best places to walk your dog is on Rosie's Dog Beach. Named for a beloved dog who died, it opened in 2003 and is one of the few of its kind anywhere.
Although the stretch of beach isn't actually fenced in, it's clearly defined and 6am to 8pm daily are dog designated hours. There is free parking nearby and dispensers have little plastic bags in them. It's located near Roycroft Avenue on Ocean Boulevard, and is a great place to not only walk your dog, but to meet other dog owners too.
