Are you going to Allapattah soon? 

If you're planning to bring Fido with you, go ahead and pack that furbaby's suitcase! 

With an array of dog-friendly parks in this neighborhood, I'm sure it'll have a blast as much as YOU will!

Known as one of the oldest neighborhoods in Miami, Allapattah is a working-class community located northwest of Downtown Miami, west of Wynwood, and approximately five miles from Miami International Airport.

The community is known to have one of the most diverse residents in the county, boasting a strong sense of community and a distinct Latin flavor. 

In fact, Allapattah was even granted the title "Little Santo Domingo" because of its prominent Dominican population.

Needless to say, it's a melting pot of anything and everything Caribbean and Latin America!

And you know what else is there to look forward to about Allapattah? 

It's a dog-friendly city, too!

Get your pup ready for a workout! 

Here's a list of dog-friendly parks in Allapattah.
