Bridgeport Heights stretches from the A1A to the east and all the way across the peninsula to the Halifax River, consisting of both older and newer single-family homes. Shopping is a little bit of a drive as this area is more of a resort zone with hotels and condos lining the beach. All the green space along the Halifax River has been taken up by houses with backyards and private docks that lead out into the river. Pet supply stores and dog-friendly parks are well within driving distance but the big deal is the beaches that run all along the oceanfront. Keep in mind that some areas of the beach do not allow dogs so be aware of laws in the area.
With 230 days of sun, winter temperatures in the 40s, and summers in the 90s, there are very few days where you and Fido can't go out for a walk.
Like most of the peninsula, the terrain here is pretty flat but at least there are sidewalks for the two of you go walking along when the temperatures aren't too hot. Keep in mind that once the ambient temperatures reach the mid-70s, the pavement can be hot enough to damage your pup's feet in minutes. These burns can be severe enough to leave permanent damage and will require the services of a vet.
You can still make good use of flat ground when it comes to getting in your exercise! You just have to learn how to vary your walks, try taking different routes, change the time of day you go out on walks, try walking along the beach, or even visit one of the many state and local parks in the area to get in your exercise. Ultimately, you have a variety of options whether or not the terrain in your area is flat.
Speaking of places for you and your dog to go walking, the nearest small park that allows dogs is the Beachcomber Park next door to Cow Licks on the A1A. This is a tiny park that offers no restroom facilities but does allow dogs and has a fitness area and playground to keep everyone happy.
There are a number of similar parks along the A1A that will welcome you and your dog. But if you are up for the challenge, there are several amazing state parks to the north including Tomoka, Gamble Rogers, and Bulow Creek, all of which have plenty of nature trails for the two of you to go for long hikes on.
While you may have to drive to these parks, you never know what different types of wildlife you might happen to come across on your hikes! One thing to keep in mind, however, is to never attempt to approach or feed any of it.
