VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - Dog lovers will be allowed to take their pets on Virginia Beach's popular Boardwalk at the height of tourism season.

Media outlets report that the City Council voted Tuesday to change a long-standing ban on dogs at the Oceanfront from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

People can walk leashed dogs on the Boardwalk and on nearby grassy areas between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. during the city's high tourism months.

The beach will still be off-limits to dogs during tourist season.
