This southbound Virginia Welcome Center offers the traveling dog a much needed break after riding through the Washington, D.C. traffic congestion.

 

The green areas are not very big but the stop is definitely dog friendly. Fromt he satellite view a dog will get the impression there is more open green spots than there really are.

 

The north side (entrance side) of the Visitor Center is the most used by traveling dogs.  A paved path, several picnic tables, water fountain with dog spigot, and at least 2 dog comfort stations with waste bags are found amongst the many trees. 

 

Only down side is the many trees keep the ground from getting grass so if you visit after a rain like we did your dog paws may get a little muddy if you get off the path.

 

Smaller in size, the south side green and pet area offers more grass, at least 3 dog stations with waste bags, and a water fountain with dog spigot.
