Lantana Terrace is a small community of single-family homes sandwiched between N Halifax Avenue and the Halifax River over on the edge of Daytona Beach. Living here puts you within a short five-minute walk of the coast and right next door to Colin Park.
If you like to eat out, living on the beachside affords you the opportunity to sample the wares of many fine restaurants that serve a variety of foods to sample. If you like to trip the light fantastic, some of the best dance floors in town are on this side of the Halifax River as well. If surfing is your game, then you are going to love the endless blue skies and 90-degree weather found here in July and August. The winters tend to cool down with average temperatures in the 50s, even in January, perfect for bundling up and taking Fido for a walk on the sand.
As you might expect, the terrain here is like the rest of beachside Daytona. In other words, it's very flat with plenty of residential blocks to walk around and sidewalks for you and your pup to take your daily strolls along. Although the ground here is flat, there is no reason why you and Fido can't get in plenty of exercise. You just have to be a bit more creative.
For example, trace out a few different walking routes the two of you can rotate through. The more routes you can put together, the less likely your eyes and your pup's nose are to become bored with your daily walks. Be sure you take your walks during the early morning hours during the hottest months of the year to avoid succumbing to heat stroke. Hot temperatures can also leave pups susceptible to burns from hot pavement. Take extra precautions around this time of year.
Colin Park is right next door with a small area of grass and some walking trails for the two of you to share. But, by far, the largest green space is the beach with its miles and miles of sand and surf for you to go for walks on. The beach is a dual-purpose terrain with the soft, white sands up against the property lines of the many condos and hotels lining the beach. This space offers both of you the opportunity to work your leg muscles and lungs.
Remember that, like pavement, the sand can reach temperatures that can cause discomfort and burns. Luckily, the best part about the beach is that the two of you can walk back on the wet sand at the water's edge to keep cool. This is a great time to have a little fun playing in the ocean together on your way home.!
