Forest Glen is a townhouse community located off of N Nova Road close to the Daytona Beach Golf Club. This is a carefully planned community that is close to a selection of excellent restaurants such as Brisas del Mar, serving up authentic Mexican cuisine, and Leanh's Chinese Restaurant, a well-established Pan-Asian restaurant with a huge menu. If neither of these sounds good, there are plenty more to choose from within a short drive.
If you need pet supplies or groceries, there is a Walmart Supercenter just down the road. You are close enough to the Daytona International Speedway to hear the races without having to deal with the crazy traffic during race weeks.
If you like the sunshine, then you are going to fall head over heels in love with Daytona where summer temperatures remain in the 90s for weeks on end and the blue skies never seem to stop!
The terrain around the Forest Glen community is flat and carefully maintained with a section of woods and a lake in the middle of the complex. Once you step out of the complex, the area is mostly suburban with plenty of sidewalks for you to hike around.
When faced with terrain like this, plan your walks with Fido to ensure you get the most out of them. For example, you have huge residential areas to work your way around, so try going around a different area each day or taking longer walks. The more creative you can be, the more enjoyable you will find going out for walks together.
Remember that during the summer months, paved surfaces in Central Florida become hot enough to burn a dog's paws. If you take your pup out for walks in this area, be sure you take them out in the early morning when the sidewalks and streets are still cool and comfortable.
No matter which direction you go, plan to drive if you want a green space where you and Fido can go for walks or play around. The nearest park is the Samuel L. Butts Archeological Park, an area now filled with water, but was once a dig where Butts discovered hundreds of spearheads and other artifacts from the Timucuan Indians. He also found skeletal remains of a Wooly Mammoth! There is even a walking path that runs all the way around the lake for you to enjoy.
Alternatively, you can head to Tuscawilla Park where there is a large area of woods complete with trails to walk on and a 65-pin disc golf course for those who love to play through. The park is also home to Daytona Beach Zipline Adventures which can keep the kids entertained while you and your playful pooch take a jog around the open spaces.
