Living in Cedar Hill puts you in the planned community of Bohon Park near the Halifax Habitat Village. From here, it's a short ride in the car to pet supply stores, places to eat, and shopping, but in return for the short commute into the heart of town, you live in relative peace and quiet.
As a tourist town, the heart of Daytona around the World's Most Famous Beach and Daytona International Speedway tends to be very busy most of the year. Living out here gives you the chance to get away from the tourists, even during the busiest times of the year. On most days, it's only a 20-minute drive to the beach if you and your pooch decide to go for walks in the sand.
Summers here are hot and humid with temperatures in the 90s and humidity to match, but with the beach so close and good air conditioning at home, it can't get much better!
The terrain here is what you might expect in a planned community. It's flat with carefully laid out residential areas, sidewalks for you and Fido to use for your daily walks, and a sufficient number of residential sections from which to choose.
Dogs like yours do more exploring of their surroundings with their noses, so while going around the same block might not bother you, your pup's nose will soon get bored. The best thing you can do is take a different route every day! This gives you a chance to get out and meet some of your neighbors.
Since all you have to walk on is pavement, you'll want to be aware that during the summer months, paved surfaces can and frequently do reach temperatures in excess of 135°F. This is hot enough to cause discomfort and burns fairly easily. Taking your walks in the early morning hours is the best way to avoid this problem.
Beyond a few small areas of woods, most of which are on private property, there isn't much here in the way of usable green space. To the west on LPGA Blvd. is the Community Dog Park at the Halifax Humane Society. This park has separate sections for large and small dogs with agility courses, watering stations, and shady places to sit.
Go a little further west and your journey will take you to the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area and Tiger Bay Forest. If you and your four-legged friend like hiking in the woods, then you will love having miles of trails running through over 30,000 acres of Florida forestland to wander through. Your journeys can take you through cypress swamps, pine-palmettos, and more! At any turn, you could come across a vast array of wildlife to keep an eye out for including deer, a variety of birds, and plenty of local critters.
