Sarah Owens Welcome Center welcomes pets to the OBX!

Outer Banks Visitors arriving from mainland Dare County crossing the Virginia Dare Memorial Bridge will find the Sarah Owens Welcome Center at the base of the bridge on Roanoke Island.

The Sarah Owens Welcome Center truly welcomes guests to the Outer Banks. The large "Welcome to The Outer Banks of North Carolina" sign makes visitors feel that they have finally arrived on the OBX.

In addition to having covered picnic areas, restrooms, and a nice lawn to stretch your legs, the Sarah Owens Welcome Center has made an especially designated area for dogs. Your canine family members can stretch their legs and relax on the beautifully manicured lawn. A particular post with free poop bags and the trash can is also prominently located in the doggie area. Your dog must be on a leash at all times on the grounds of the Welcome Center. Dogs are not allowed inside buildings.

Information on everything Outer Banks awaits inside the Sarah Owens Welcome Center. The knowledgeable, friendly staff can help you find maps and information on pet-friendly accommodations & has an accommodation reservation center, public phones, and information on area attractions, events, and restaurants, from fast food to gourmet seafood.

Welcome to the OBX! Pets Welcome at the Sarah Owens Welcome Center!

Did you know that you can now bring Fido to stop and smell the roses and see the sites at The Elizabethan Gardens in Manteo? 

Yes, your four-legged family members are welcome to visit the historically-inspired garden. While you’ll think you’ve taken a fancy trip to Europe with their old-world landscapes and Renaissance statuary, you’re dog’s tail will be waggin’ in delight as they take the lead and discover all kinds of smells and critters on a stroll along 10 acres of tamed and natural landscapes. 

Even during the dog-days of summer, The Gardens tree-shaded paths and sound-side breezes are a great escape from the heat of the beach.

 There is a small three-dollar charge but we’re pretty sure that the smells and natural elements of the gardens will be an unforgettable highlight of your dog’s Outer Banks vacation.

Keep an eye on their online calendar (www.elizabethangardens.org) for any seasonal or special events for dogs and their families.
