Augustine Villas is a multi-family housing unit on the corner of Kennedy Road and 6th Street. Living here puts you close to the action without being right on top of it. Loosely translated, this means if you like to dine out, you have to drive to find a restaurant and, if you want a pet supply store or dog park, the same applies. But, like most things in Daytona Beach, nothing is more than ten to fifteen minutes from anywhere in town. This includes Daytona International Speedway for those of you who are NASCAR fans and Daytona Beach for both locals and tourists that love the sun.
Speaking of the sun, did you know it shines for approximately 230 days each year and that the average temperature during the summer months is in the 90s? While this might be great for warm weather lovers, winters aren't bad either with temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
The terrain here is a grid-like network of residential blocks offering you and Fido the chance to log as many blocks as the two of you can handle on your daily walks. Flat terrain can be hard to make challenging. The only way you can do so is to increase the number of blocks the two of you walk around each time you go out. You can also try jogging slowly if you go out early in the mornings!
While it is very important for the two of you to get out and walk every day, you also have to know what time of day to venture out. In the summer months when afternoon temperatures are in the high 90s, unshaded paved surfaces can reach temperatures above 135°F. This is certainly hot enough to burn your pup's paws, so exercise caution during these warmer months.
Living here puts you close to the athletic fields of Derbyshire Park where there is plenty of grass for the two of you to run around on. Cedar Highlands Park is close by as well, offering a small copse of woods with trails running through them for the two of you to hike around in.
Beyond this, if you want more space to roam, hop onto LPGA Blvd and head west. This will take you to the 30,000 acres that make up the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area. The WMA contains miles of trails that are open to cyclists, horseback riders, and hikers with their four-legged friends like Fido. The trails will take you deep into the forest where the two of you can discover hidden ponds and visit with many of the local wildlife residents who choose to call the WMA home. This includes black bears, whitetail deer, and many others!
