Homan Terrace is a charming community on the shores of the Halifax River. While the homes here may be older, the entire neighborhood is well-kept. The Terrace itself dead ends before it reaches the river to allow for two very nice houses to be built. While there are a few places along the A1A to eat, if you want a dog park or pet supply store, you have to drive to Daytona Beach on the mainland side. Once you get to the end of the street, you have to cross S. Peninsular Dr. to find a sidewalk.
You should be aware that this is a bustling thoroughfare, so pay attention to the traffic and wear light clothing. You should also be aware that summer temperatures here range in the low to mid-90s, so be sure to go walking in the morning when the sidewalks are not hot enough to burn your pooch's paws.
The terrain on beachside is quite flat and unremarkable in itself, but on one side, you have the Halifax River and on the other lies the glorious sandy beaches and the Atlantic Ocean. If you and your pup get bored with walking on the pavement, you can always go for a walk on the beach. The sand at low tide offers you the option of two different styles of walking. First, the dry sand is fine and tends to make walking harder, whereas the sand down at the water's edge is wet and much easier to walk on. Keep in mind that just like the pavement, the sand tends to heat up as well. On a sunny day, the sand temperature can reach 120°F, which is hot enough to cause severe damage to your pup's paws. To avoid this, try going for your walks early in the morning before everything heats up.
There isn't much in the way of parks or greenways in this part of town beyond the beach which isn't really green but is a great place to take your pup for a walk.
If you really want a great place to visit on your outing, try cruising up the A1A to Bulow Creek State Park or Tomoka State Park. There are enough trails in these parks to make your hikes fun for a very long time.
One of the great things about this area of Florida is that when the cities were built, many areas were left in their pristine condition for future generations to enjoy. They offer trails to hike, levees to walk along, and a myriad of different types of wildlife to see as you walk along. Be sure to make use of the many different state parks and preserves to be found in Central Florida as they have so much to see and do.
