Most people don't realize this, but even though we live in a city with millions of people, all stacked up in the tall buildings, there are still so many quiet hidden gems in the city.
I've lived here nearly 15 years (E for longer), but it has really taken having dogs to get out and explore all the pockets of our city. Sure we love being in a crowd, but sometimes it's just nice to have some quiet, nature-filled walks. After seeing this from our friends over at Peaceful Dog, we thought we would share some of our favorite unexpected places in the city:
Humboldt Parkoff-leash dogs.
North Channel Trail
Milton Lee Olive Park
on this vacation. It's located downtown behind Oak Street Beach and it's the perfect blend of scenic views without the crowds. We were out walking during the day, and we were basically the only ones out there despite being located right on the edge of downtown.
Have other people found unexpected places while out exploring with your pup?
