Pleasant View Circle is a small neighborhood located on the Halifax River over on the beachside of Daytona Beach. The homes here are all larger single-family homes and, no matter which end of the street you live on, you are only a ten-minute walk from the water.
Living here gives you all of the advantages of living near the beach without the hassle of tourist traffic all day long. For the foodie in you, there are dozens of restaurants and eateries lining A1A, serving up an incredible variety of seafood, steak, and cuisine from all around the globe.
One of the best things about living on beachside has to be the summer breezes that help keep you cooled down. Winters here are nothing to complain about either as the coldest it gets is in January. There are few days where you and your pup can't get out and stretch your legs.
The terrain here is typical of what you might expect on the peninsula. It's very flat and heavily built-up. Don't let this make you think you can't find ways to keep your walks with your dog interesting, however. Instead of walking to the end of the street and back, try going to the end of the street and turning left, right, or cross over in the rest of the residential area where there are plenty of sidewalks to utilize.
Try going around as many different blocks as you can on a regular basis or perhaps go for distance by walking as many blocks as possible before heading back home. You would be surprised at how doing something so simple will not only make your walks more enjoyable, but over time, they will help build muscles, improve stamina, and help you stay happy and healthy. Luckily, it will also do the same for your pup!
The biggest green space nearby has to be the World's Most Famous Beach with its miles of sand. Up close to the condos, the soft sand presents its own unique form of exercise by dragging at your feet with every step. Walking in this type of sand will work leg muscles you never knew you had! In time, your leg muscles will get over the pain of walking in soft sand and will start to become stronger, more well-defined, and have far more stamina.
You can also enjoy easier walks on the way back by sticking to the wet sand next to the surf. It presents a harder surface you won't sink into and gives your dog a chance to play in the surf.
On the beach, you can walk as far as you want! Try to take your walks early in the morning before the beaches are packed with tourists, making walking with your pup a much more difficult task.
