Best Dog-Friendly Beaches: Jekyll Island, Georgia

For Low-Key Canines

Jekyll Island, Georgia

By law, 65 percent of the island must remain undeveloped, so even during the busiest times, the beach feels secluded. Bonus: Many hotels and restaurants cater to the tail-wagging tourist. Parking fees on the island are $5 per vehicle per day.

Get there: From I-95, take exit 29 and continue east on U.S. 17 for approximately 10 miles. Turn right onto the Downing Musgrove Causeway (GA 520).
