Royal Park Dayton is located within in a couple of blocks of Bethune Cookman University and only a ten to fifteen-minute drive from the World's Most Famous Beach. Living here puts you close to several of Daytona Beach's most popular attractions without being right on top of them.
For instance, you are near the Daytona International Speedway and NASCAR museum with the Volusia Mall right across from the track. Over on the beachside, the nightlife comes alive as the sun sets at numerous beachside clubs. No matter what your tastes are, you can find at least one restaurant that serves what you want from seafood to steak and everything in between.
Come for the warm winters where temperatures are in the 50s and 60s, but stay for the summers where the temperatures are in the 90s. The sun never seems to stop shining! Life in Florida is a lot like living in a sub-tropical paradise.
The terrain here is typically suburban in nature in that there are blocks of residential neighborhoods, many of which have sidewalks for you and Fido to take your daily strolls along. There are several vacant lots and large open areas you can use as long as you remember to keep them on a leash and clean up any messes.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that Fido needs to get their daily exercise if you want them to remain healthy! While you may be used to walking on paved surfaces, your pup probably needs time for the pads on the bottoms of their feet to toughen up enough to handle both the rough surface of the sidewalks and the heat it can produce.
You should also be aware that in the summer months, the pavement can reach temperatures in excess of 135°F, so be prepared and exercise caution in these conditions.
There is a lake next door in Roosevelt Park with a walking trail around it. You and Fido can walk to it and then enjoy a nice leisurely stroll around the lake before coming home.
The next nearest green space you and your pup can check out is Tuscawilla Park. Here, you will find the Daytona Beach Zipline Adventures and a 65-pin disc golf course to play a few rounds on. There is also a large area of woods with walking trails running through them for the two of you to mess around in.
Beyond small parks, if you want somewhere with plenty of room for the two of you to stretch your legs, it's going to be a bit of a drive. Take LPGA Blvd. out to the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area and State Forest. The WMA covers over 30,000 acres and offers miles of trails for you and Fido to explore.
