If you want to take your dog out for a day trip but your not sure where to go you should check out Montrose beach! It has a multitude of various settings by the lake, from paved walks, to grassy & shaded areas under trees and sandy beaches... EVEN A WONDERFUL DOG BEACH!
I had the pleasure of hanging out at Montrose beach yesterday for a birthday party. We grilled hotdogs and sausages and people brought home made potato salads and other condiments. It was sunny with a light (sometimes stronger) breeze.
I saw plenty of happy dogs enjoying the outdoors with their families. Maybe you were there too?
