Ocean Beach Boulevard runs from Hendry Avenue to the north down to Wakulla Lane to the south. This vital highway is home to a wide range of residences including condos, hotels, apartments, and even a few single-family homes along the way. No matter where you live on Ocean Beach Boulevard, you are less than five minutes away from the beach with numerous public accessways you and your dog can use.
There is a Publix Supermarket south of this area along A1A that those who live along the southern half of this community can use to buy food for themselves and their furry friends. For those who live in the northern half, you will find most of your shopping amenities along and near the Minuteman Causeway and another Publix in the Cornerstone Plaza on A1A where you can stock your pantry and the dog food bin at the same time.
Ocean Beach Boulevard is a very busy stretch of road, no matter where you happen to live. This highway is one of two main roads running north-south in town and the one that is closest to the beach. Much of the traffic is courtesy of short-term residents and tourists which can make taking your dog for a walk challenging. When you add in the rush hour traffic, things not only get hectic, but the noise levels can become unbearable to your dog.
If the two of you prefer to walk on paved, flat surfaces, you may have a hard time finding anywhere without lots of traffic unless you happen to live in one of the residential communities nearby. Here, you might be able to make good use of the sidewalks where they exist and carefully on the roads when there are none. No matter where you and your pup choose to go for walks, be sure you use a short leash to stay safe.
Oddly, for such a long stretch of road, you won't find a single park anywhere along it. Maybe that's because the beach is only a few minutes to the east, no matter where you live along Ocean Beach Boulevard. When you have miles of sand and surf for the two of you to enjoy walking along, that's pretty much all you need! If you get out early in the morning before the rest of the world comes to life, the only other people you are likely to run across are others out doing the same as you.
If you prefer an off-leash dog park, the Cocoa Beach Public Dog Park is a short drive to the south. Along with plenty of parking, the park covers 32,000 square feet and is divided into spaces for large and small dogs. There is also a rinse station to cool your dog down and rinse off the dust when playtime is over.
