Chaffee Place East Daytona is a small section of single-family homes fronted on the Halifax River over on the beachside and close to the Seabreeze Boulevard Bridge. This area of town is close enough to the center of things to enjoy all that the area has to offer, but far enough to be able to enjoy a little peace and quiet.
For those who love to eat out, there are several excellent restaurants on both sides of the bridge. But if clubbing is your thing, then you are on the right side of the Halifax River as the best nightclubs are up by the Boardwalk. With summer night temperatures in the 70s, several of the clubs offer open-air bars and dance floors for you to dance the night away under the stars. You can even go walking along the beach virtually any day of the year, even in January when daytime temperatures are in the upper 40s.
Chaffee Place East Daytona is like most of the beachside in that there really isn't much variation in the terrain. The land as far as the eye can see is essentially flat. Although this may not sound like much fun when it comes to taking your dog out for daily walks, it can be as much fun as you make it.
For example, you could walk around the different residential blocks across S Peninsula or walk up and down the road. Better yet, why not take your dog two blocks down to the beach and make use of the miles of sand that lie at your feet? Take on the challenge of the dry sand and see which one of you tires out first, then run back along the surf and splash each other all the way home. Most of all, make sure you get out there and enjoy the salty air and sunshine!
The beach is your closest open space and one you should be using for your daily walks at every opportunity. It's a great way to get a good solid workout and spend time together. However, if you want "green" space to take your dog out for their weekly trip out to play, it's only a short drive to both Bulow Creek State Park and Tomoka State Park.
The Timucuan Indians called the headwaters of the Tomoka River where Tomoka State Park is located home for a very long time. In the park, you can hike to Nocoroco, a Timucuan Indian village. When you go to Bulow, you can see the ruins of the Bulow Plantation that was destroyed in 1836 during the Second Seminole War. In this park, you and your dog can hike the 7-mile long Bulow Woods Trail and then have a nice family picnic in sight of the 400-year-old Fairchild Oak.
