Elizabeth Oliver is a small neighborhood on a single street that runs from S. Peninsular into the community and dead ends. The homes here are larger and, as you might expect, more expensive than many areas in Daytona. If you like to eat out, you will find no shortage of incredible restaurants all up and down A1A and in the local area.
If you love the nightlife and clubbing, again, you are in the right place! Beachside is the party capital of the world with beachside nightclubs, bars, and tiki lounges as far as the eye can see.
During the summer months, the evenings here are warm and breezy, keeping the clubs packed, especially those with beachside open-air decks. In the winter months, the outside decks might be unavailable at night, but you can still take your dog walking on the beach. You might need a jacket in January when the temperatures during the day are in the upper 40s.
If you have seen one block over on the beachside, you have seen most of them. The area between the Atlantic Ocean and the Halifax River is mostly flat and, if it weren't for all the yards covered in sod, the area would be nothing more than scrub and sand.
Going for walks here with your dog could almost be boring if you don't put at least a little effort into making them fun. Instead of just going to the end of the street and back, try turning right and going south for a few blocks or turning left and going north for a while. The more variety you can build into your strolls, the more both of you will look forward to going out at every opportunity. Just remember to keep your summer walks to the early hours of the morning when things are still nice and cool for the safety of your dog's paws!
Living over on the beachside means not having much in the way of green spaces for the two of you to play around on. But there is, of course, the beach with miles of natural sand for you and how to play and hike on.
You can walk along the soft sand, through the dunes, and go as far as you want. The soft sand will give both of you an incredible workout as this type of sand sucks at your feet with every step you take. Walking in this type of sand is a good way to build up some serious leg muscles and stamina. It is also a good way to walk off those extra pounds if need be.
The alternative is to drive up to Tomoka State Park where you will find 2,000 acres of prime Florida forest and the head of the Tomoka River where you can enjoy exploring along the waterfront.
