Raceway Pointe is home to a couple of apartment communities located behind the Volusia Mall, putting you within walking distance of the many shops and places to eat there. If you are a NASCAR fan, you can walk to the track during Race Weeks instead of trying to find somewhere to park.
Living here also puts you close to a small selection of restaurants, but if you want restaurants like the Chart House or the Cellar Restaurant, you have to drive to them. The same applies to the those who like to dance the night away as all the best clubs are over on the beachside.
Speaking of the beach, summers in Daytona are meant to be spent on the beach with temperatures staying in the 90s for weeks on end! During the summer months, even the surf is warm. In fact, it feels a lot like bath water at 82 degrees.
The terrain here is a blend of urban and suburban, but no matter how you look at it, the ground is flat. There are little to no variations to traverse. But then again, it's up to you to find ways to make going for walks at least a little more interesting!
You can walk around the paths within the apartment communities, but even this will get boring after a short period of time. Luckily, you're within walking distance of several patches of open ground and woods for the two of you to play around in.
The most important thing to remember is that you and your dog need to get out and explore the communities that make up this part of town! You might be surprised at how much open space there is for the two of you to explore in an area of town that appears to be heavily built up.
The one thing about living in the Race Pointe community is that there are plenty of wooded areas nearby for you and your pup to wander around in. Most are easily within walking distance of home. Parks, however, are a bit more challenging to find as the nearest dog park is the Community Dog Park at the Halifax Humane Society. Here, you will find two separate fenced-in areas to enjoy with your pup, no matter their size. There are agility courses in both sides for your dog to play on, water fountains for all, plenty of toys, and lots of shade for you to relax in while your dog plays with the others.
If you are feeling particularly energetic, why not take Fido out to the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area? This space covers thirty thousand acres of forest land with miles of trails for the two of to explore every chance you get.
