Tanglewood Court is a small residential community located close to the Halifax River and Fairview Bridge sitting between N Ridgewood Ave and N Beach St. Living here puts you close to several popular restaurants such as Caribbean Jack's and Chez Paul Gourmet. Along with these, there are plenty more to choose from both here on the mainland side and over on the beachside. If clubbing is more your thing, then hit the beachside where you can dance the night away in places like the Ocean Deck and the Mai Tai bar.
The beach is only a ten-minute drive from home and makes a great way for you and Fido to get in a little bit of extra exercise. Speaking of the beach, did you know you can take Fido there for walks almost every day of the year? You can even go in January when daytime temperatures are typically in the upper 40s with plenty of sunshine!
"Mostly flat and suburban" would be a good description of the terrain all around Tanglewood Court. Thankfully, the developers did think to add in sidewalks for you and Fido to make use of. It can be pretty hard to get in much strenuous exercise on level ground.
When you don't have hills to climb, the next best thing you can do is exchange climbs for distance. Living here gives you plenty of residential blocks to use for your daily walks. Try your best to go around different blocks each time you go out with your puppy pal. On some days, take short walks while using other days for long walks. At the same time, you can always get up early in the morning and go for a jog instead of a walk. The more variety you can build into your strolls with Fido, the more enjoyable both of you will find them.
The nearest greenway is the trail running along the west bank of the Halifax River. The trail runs from the Main St. Bridge south past the News-Journal building and down to City Island Park. Although the path itself is paved, Fido can run alongside on the grass. While you are walking, you can watch the boat traffic out on the river and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine.
When this isn't enough, you can head over
to the beach. This is one of the most substantial greenways you are likely to
find in the area as it runs for 23 miles in either direction. The beach offers
two different types of walking. The first
is the soft sand that is difficult to walk in. While it might be awkward, it presents an excellent challenge. Then when you get tired of the hard slog, you can take to the wet
sand for a leisurely walk home.
