Staying at the Silver Beach Condo Club in Daytona Beach is a fun way to see all that the World's Most Famous Beach has to offer. It also gives you time to explore downtown Daytona Beach, famous for Spring Break, Bike Week, and all-around fun in the sun. At one time, the condos and most of the hotels in the area were landlocked as they were packed so tightly together. Following Hurricanes Irma and Matthew, several vacant lots have appeared. They offer a place to walk your dog. But, if you feel like seeing what beachside Daytona has to offer, the two of you need to take a stroll down A1A where multiple businesses are ready to sell you souvenirs, surfboards, and gear as well as plenty of eateries. There is more than one reason they call this the World's Most Famous Beach, besides, of course, the beautiful white sands and pristine shorelines.
The terrain around the Silver Beach Club Condo is all manmade parking lots. Not only does this look less than spectacular, but it also provides your pup with nowhere to walk or go potty. Worse yet, during the hottest part of the summer, the surface temperature of the parking lot can burn the pads on your pup's paws in seconds. Walking is something that is best done in the early morning before the sun has had a chance to heat the tarmac to a melting point. When you hit the road early in the morning, the sidewalks also tend to be less crowded. If you prefer to stay off the sidewalks, there is always the beach. Dry sand tends to suck your feet in, making it harder and more challenging to stroll in. Wet sand, on the other hand, is easy to walk in and is just like walking on a sidewalk!
Unfortunately, the ground immediately around the condo building is all man-made parking lots. However, where once the entire beach was lined with hotels, motels, and condos, after Irma and Matthew, there are numerous vacant lots where buildings once stood. Beyond this, the only nearby green space is the beach. The sand and vegetation not only form a vital part of the local ecology, but they do offer you and your pooch a place to go for long refreshing walks early in the morning when few others are around. This environment is perfect to get in a relaxing amount of exercise with your pup at your side. It could be many years before any of the vacant lots are filled, but the beach itself should provide you with plenty of walking space for plenty of months, and even years, in the future. Despite the lack of green spaces, you'll have options, regardless!
