Georgetowne is a large planned residential community near the St. Andrews Highlands golf community on Beville Road. Living here puts you very close to a Walmart Supercenter where you can buy everything you need for Fido including pet food, supplies, and groceries. Living here also puts you close to the airport, Daytona Beach International Speedway, and several of the finest restaurants in town.
One of the great things about having a home here in Georgetowne is that, no matter what you might need or want, most of it will be just a drive away.
If you are a sun lover, you are going to love living here. The summers are exceptional with temperatures in the 90s for weeks at a time. You can even stay for the winters where the average temperatures range in the 50s and 60s with a few rainy days. You'll still have plenty of good walking weather, no matter the season.
The terrain here is what some might call "manufactured" in that the entire area has been flattened by bulldozers with streets laid down in very precise patterns that give both you and your pup plenty of choices for walking.
To get the most out of your walks, simply create a number of walking routes that take the two of you around different parts of the community each day. Just keep in mind that walking on paved surfaces can be hard on your dog's paws and may lead to damage. The rough surface acts like sandpaper and, if you push them to walk on pavement too far, too soon, it can lead to some moderate discomfort and difficulty walking.
At the same time, during the summer months, paved surfaces can become hot enough to cause burns. Exercise caution no matter what time of year it is to ensure that your dog's paws are comfortable and taken care of.
The Georgetowne community has three small lakes for you and Fido to walk around as well as a small section of woods in the southeast corner. But if you want room for you and Fido to put in some serious hiking, then you have only to drive to the west.
The drive will take you to the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area. The WMA covers more than 30,000 acres of pine-palmettos, cypress swamps, and miles of hiking trails for you to share with horseback rider and cyclists. You can use the trails to hike for miles together while searching for as many of the local inhabitants of the park as you can find.
You might see a family of deer nibbling at the grass in one of the many meadows or many species of birds in the trees. The WMA is home to these and many others. The more you visit, the more of them you are likely to find!
