More to Do in Queens

Queens County is filled with pet-friendly things to do, and now that you can take your pet on Amtrak trains, traveling here has never been easier. When show events aren’t taking place, you can walk your dog around Flushing Meadows Corona Park to enjoy the beautiful scenery. In designated off-leash areas, you can let your pups run around to enjoy the sunshine. If you get hungry, grab a bite from Tommy’s Doghouse or Queens Night Market located within the park. You can also check out other pet-friendly restaurants nearby, including Kyuramen, 1392 Seafood BBQ, and many more! 

In nearby Astoria, you can visit Château Le Woof, the first dog café in the US! Enjoy a premium shopping experience, with the newest designer trends, organic treats, and an assortment of chews and toys. This café is a cozy space where you can work, hang out with friends, and have brunch while socializing your dog in a fun and climate-controlled environment.
