DOGS on the Beach during the winter

Did you know that from October to May, you can bring your dog down to the Rye Beach and let him/her frolick in the waves without a leash? It's a wonderful treat for our 4-legged friends. Use a leash until you enter the gate off the Rye Boardwalk.. and be sure to observe all of the usual dog etiquette. Enjoy this balmy winter weather with your pet until April!
