Living in Central City Daytona Beach puts you close to the action no matter what type of fun you crave. If you love to shop, the Volusia Mall is right next door on International Speedway Blvd. Prefer to shop for souvenirs? It's only a ten-minute drive over to the peninsula where you can find any number of souvenir shops. What about dining out? From fast-food to fine dining such as the Chart House or Anna's Trattoria Italian restaurant, there is something in town for every taste.
If you like to spend your Friday nights hitting the clubs, there are plenty of them in town, especially over on the beachside where you can find Mai Tai Tiki and the famous Ocean Deck.
If you are going to live here, you should probably like the sun and hot weather as the summers here average in the 90s with weeks of endless sunshine!
The terrain here is mostly suburban residential and relatively flat. If you and your pup want to get the most out of your daily walks, you're going to have to be creative. There are plenty of residential blocks for the two of you to stroll around.
To make things a little more interesting, try going around different blocks and in different directions every day. This will give you something new to look at and your pup something new to sniff at.
Walking on pavement will help keep Fido's claws ground down, reducing how often they need to be clipped. But, at the same time, the rough pavement can be very hard on their paws. Be sure you keep an eye on them until they have toughened up enough to handle longer walks without showing signs of damage. In addition, during the summer months, be sure to take your walks in the early morning before the ground becomes too hot to be comfortable.
Living in the center of the city gives you access to several parks. In the northwest corner of the community, Cypress Park offers walking and jogging trails for you and your pup to enjoy along with plenty of shade.
Along the west side of the community is Tuscawilla Park where you and your playful pooch can enjoy walking on the many trails running through and around the 65-pin disc golf course. While you are walking, you can send the kids to ride the Daytona Beach Zipline Adventures. The park covers a lot of ground and is a great place to take walks in the shade.
Finally, to the south is the Samuel L. Butts Archeological Park. This park contains a large lake with a walking path that offers the perfect place for you and Fido to go walking out of the range of traffic. This area is fantastic for some light exercise and fresh air.
