Gardner Webber is a tiny neighborhood of single-family homes just off of N Ridgewood and North Street near the Halifax River. You are close enough to the Mason Avenue bridge that will take you all the way over to the beachside.
If you like to eat out, Caribbean Jack's Restaurant and Bar is only a couple of blocks away. Along with this, there are plenty of other places to eat all around the area ranging from fast food to fine dining. If you are into the nightclub scene, you should head over to the beachside where there are plenty of outstanding nightclubs catering to just about any musical tastes. Many of these clubs have decks that lead right onto the beach where you can dance the night away under the summer stars.
Speaking of nights in Daytona, the temperatures are perfect for dancing on the sands after a day of hitting the waves.
This is an urban setting with several blocks of mixed commercial and residential property. Living here means having to take your walks on the sidewalks which means making sure your pup and their paws are ready for it. If they are new to walking on pavement or they're a puppy just getting started, your walks should be short, at first. Be sure to keep a close eye on the condition of those paws. If they start to show signs of damage or injury, try to keep their walks on grass for a few days to let them heal.
It may take a while for their paws to become tough enough to handle longer walks in this pavement-heavy area, but you will find it well worth the effort. Toughening those paws up will also help keep the hot pavement from burning through them and causing serious injury or discomfort. Keep the Florida heat in mind when traversing this area.
The only real disadvantage of living here is that you're not near many green spaces. The one saving grace is the walking trail that runs from the Main St. Bridge all the way along the west bank of the Halifax River to City Island Park. The path wanders behind the News-Journal building and offers grass for your pup to walk which will give them a nice break from walking on paved surfaces.
If you want the absolute maximum in green space to play and walk on, then you have to head over to the beach. With 23 miles of sand to roam along in the Daytona Beach area, you and Fido can make the most of the terrain here. Walking in the soft sand is an incredible way to give both of you a good workout. You can take the wet and sand and the surf on your way back to cool off and have a bit of fun.
