Macari Vineyards, Mattituck

Long Islanders love to head to the vineyards as soon as it starts getting sunny. Wine drinking is even more enjoyable with your pup at Macari Vineyards. Best part is, pets are allowed indoors and out. Take a seat at the indoor tasting bar or take your drink outdoors and let your pet relish in all the sights and smells of the vineyard. Phone: 631-298-0100 | Address: 150 Bergen Avenue Click to go

The Tanger Outlets, Riverhead

Pet-friendly place


Visitors can indulge in both retail and pet therapy. Enjoy the warm spring air while going in and out of stores and grabbing a bite to eat. Shoppers can even take their pups over to Starbucks for a puppuccino. That may sound fancy and unsafe for your dog, but rest assured it’s just a cup of whipped cream. While it should not be consumed regularly, a treat now and then is something your dog will thank you for.

Blue Point Brewing Company, Patchogue

This brewery lives up to the high Long Island standards. While the beer is certainly a factor, the real cherry on top is the pet-friendly atmosphere. Sip something seasonal like the Summer Ale or the crisp Honey Robber while brewers take a polaroid of your furry friend for their wall of fame. What’s not to love?
