Living in the Georgetowne Duplex community puts you close to important amenities in Daytona Beach such as the airport and Daytona International Speedway. It also puts you close to shopping amenities such as the Walmart Supercenter and Publix grocery store, giving you places to buy dog food and supplies.
There are several restaurants nearby, offering you a pleasing mix of fast-food and family-style restaurants to choose from. While you might feel as though you are living far out from the center of activity, the beach, the nightclubs, and some of the best natural areas for you to enjoy are all within a ten to twenty-minute drive.
For those of you who love the sun and sand, you are going to love the summers here. They tend to be in the 90s with weeks of endless sunshine. Remember to take your walks with Fido in the morning during the hottest part of the summer so they don't succumb to heat stroke.
"Flat suburbia" would be a good way to describe the terrain around the Georgetowne Duplex area. From the loop street the duplexes sit on to the many surrounding residential neighborhoods, everything has been carefully laid in such a way as to ensure maximum land use. However, as a side benefit, this pattern of streets can be used to create an endless variety of walking routes for you to make use of for your daily walks.
Living in Florida means dealing with scorching hot paved surfaces in the summer months. One quick way to see if the pavement is too hot for Fido is to place the back of your hand on the pavement. If you can hold it there comfortably for at least 10 seconds, it's safe for your pooch to walk on. If not, you'll need to start taking your walks earlier in the day to reduce the risk of burns and discomfort.
Living out here presents you with a community that, while close to several small green spaces, doesn't necessarily have much for you to walk around. However, maybe the state was thinking about you and your pooch when they decided to set aside 30,000 acres for the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area. This area includes a number of small lakes and ponds along with miles of trails that cut through the area for cyclists, horseback riders, and those taking their dogs for a hike.
Keep in mind that during the summer months, you should be taking your walks early in the morning before things start to heat up. Remember to pack your mosquito repellent and plenty of water for both you and your dog. A few snacks and treats aren't a bad idea either if you plan on taking a long walk as both of you are likely to get hungry and thirsty along the way.
