Dog Areas in Christmas

4 Trails

If your blood boils when you see holiday decorations before Thanksgiving, you might want to give Christmas, FL a wide berth. Though the town was named for Fort Christmas, a bastion of defense during the Seminole War, the citizens of this small town really lean into the title. Here, you’ll find a couple of year-round Christmas stores, and streets with names like Yule Court and Blitzen Avenue. Of course, the ubiquitous baubles and bows of holly make an interesting contrast with the bright Florida sunshine -- you and your pooch certainly won’t be "daschund" through the snow! Still, even the most grumpy of Grinches might find it difficult not to get into the Christmas spirit when they stand under the giant, year-round tree downtown. 

With no designated dog park or even a community park in town, you might be forgiven for thinking that Christmas isn’t the most fur-friendly place, but you and your buddy are still sure to sniff out something to do! The town is surrounded by some gorgeous preserves -- if your doggo likes hiking, they might feel like Santa Paws has come early. And if your four-legged pal longs to lose the leash, don’t worry -- you’ll find plenty of op-paw-tunities for off-leash adventure in the surrounding area!

    #1 Tosohatchee Wildlife Management Area

    While Orlando Wetlands Park and Savage Christmas Creek Preserve are a little closer to downtown Christmas, dogs aren’t permitted in these areas due to wildlife. There’s no need for you and your pooch to get too "melan-collie" though -- Tosahatchee WMA welcomes wagging tails with open arms, as long as they stay on-leash! This vast park has sixty miles of trails for you and your buddy to explore, including a ten-mile stretch of the Florida Trail. The scenery isn’t bad, either. Routes are lined by tall palms and virgin cypress and run by gently burbling creeks, all surrounded by a carpet of native wildflowers. Be sure to bring bags and water!

    #2 Charles H Bronson State Forest


    You’d have to be barking mad not to bring your buddy to Charles H Bronson State Forest! Located just fourteen minutes away from Christmas in Oviedo, the forest is pretty popular with campers. It’s easy to see why -- you two could spend days or weeks exploring this wooded wonderland! Fitter furry friends looking for a challenge might want to check out the White Loop Trail, a twelve-mile circuit that features a couple of inclines. Careful, though -- you may need to wade through some water, so bring a towel. You’ll also find some options for the less athletic among us -- the blue trail is under a mile long, and relatively flat.

    #3 Bryan Heller Estates

    North Titusville really is a mutts-visit! The seafront neighborhood of Bryan Heller Estates is home to Brevard County Marina Dog Park, a pawfect place to let your fur-baby run free. There’s plenty of room to run in both the large and small dog areas, and bags and water are provided. Tired owners will certainly appreciate the benches, as well as the views of the ocean. If you two are looking for a truly out-of-this-world-experience, consider checking out the Canaveral National Seashore! Best known as a spot to watch rocket launches, the park doesn’t allow dogs on the beach, but you can still walk the trails by the lagoon.

    #4 Flora Vista


    A trip to Fay Lake Wilderness Dog Park is sure to get your doggo’s tail wagging! Located right outside the Flora Vista neighborhood of Cocoa, this little-known park is paws down the best in the area. The off-leash area is huge, boasting acres of well-shaded space for your pooch to tire themselves out in, and even a couple of trails for them to investigate. There’s a separate small dog area, too, and waste bags and water are provided. However, there is a downside -- the park is close to an outdoor shooting range, so you might want to give it a miss if your pup gets spooked by loud noises.

    #5 Avalon Park

    Looking for somewhere to chow down with your pooch? Look no fur-ther than Orlando’s Avalon Park neighborhood, located just twelve miles away from Christmas. For comfort food, check out 5 & Diner, where doggy diners are welcome outside, and be sure to try the chicken tenders! Mulberry Street Bar and Grill does an excellent pizza and welcomes doggy diners on their patio. Or, for a more upscale experience, you and your pooch can dine al fresco at East Side Bistro. Need to burn it all off? Head to Avalon Dog Park for a spirited game of catch! The off-leash area is spacious enough, and there’s a separate small dog run.
