Hello... moving to Charleston with two, friendly mutts. Love to take them places. I know about the dog parks in the area but I'm looking for insider tips on where we could walk especially off leash. Of course I know it won't be legally off leash, just wondering about a half hour or so walk without running into too many people. We will be living in James Island or West Ashley but we could drive in any direction if it's less than an hour.

They love going in rivers and lakes more than oceans. Can anyone suggest alligator free swimming holes for the pups?

Any dog friendly restaurants tips would be so cool too.

James Island County Park has a dog park where you can play with your dogs, let them swim in the water, and meet other people with dogs. I think it would be a great way to make new friends and let your dogs play and run off their leashes at the same time.
Years ago you could run your dogs on the beach in the evenings without their leashes, but it has really gotten strict now and you can't anymore (at least not legally).
I have 3 dogs, but live on an acre which I have completely fenced so my dogs have the luxury of running free anytime. I know it must be hard to have dogs in an apt. where you have to find places for them to run freely! Hm-m-m ...that might be a new business to go into - let people rent my yard by the half hour!?

Red's Icehouse on Shem Creek and Lost Dog Cafe at Folly Beach are great places that allow dogs.

Folly Beach before 10am and after 6pm. Same for Sullivan's Island beach. Both gator-free, but you risk getting dinged for having them off-leash, although just about everyone else does.
