Widmer Circle is a street running between S. Peninsular Dr. and the Halifax River. There are several large homes along the road ending in a cul-de-sac. The houses here are quite large and only a couple of blocks from the beach. Speaking of the beach, A1A which runs alongside the beach for miles is home to a fantastic selection of restaurants serving up anything from seafood to steaks. If you are looking for a dog-friendly park, you are pretty limited here as the good ones all require you to go for a drive.
Daytona is home to spending Christmas on the beach for the many people who come down from the "Great White North" thanks to the lack of snow and temperatures in the 40s and 50s. If fun in sand and surf is more your speed, then summers here are spectacular with endless sunny days in the 90s and hardly ever a cloud in the sky.
The terrain here is like most of the beachside which means flat and sandy. While this may not present much of a challenge for athletic dogs, it is perfect for young puppies, old dogs, and those who have managed to pack on a few extra pounds. The sidewalks make walking a little safer and easier, giving both you and Fido a chance to build up your muscles and endurance. It will also provide both of you time to get into good shape for longer walks on the beach, around your neighborhood, or in one of the many state parks found all around the city.
One thing to remember is that when the temperature outside is over 80°F, the temperature of the pavement is going to be in the neighborhood of 145°F which is hot enough to cause some burns to your dog's sensitive paw pads. Consider doggy boots or heading out earlier or later in the day.
Like most of Beachside Daytona, there isn't much in the way of green space or parks for you and Fido to play around in. But there is always the beach itself which run for miles up and down the coast of Florida and beyond.
Here, the beach offers you a choice of terrain to walk on. The first is the deep dry sand that almost never gets wet. This sand grabs at feet and paws, making it hard to walk and giving everyone's leg muscles a serious workout. You can then turn around and head back on the wet sand which is easy to walk on and gives Fido a chance to play in the surf on the way home.
If you don't mind the drive, there are several large state parks within a small radius that offer miles of trails under the shade of pines, oaks, palms, and more for you to enjoy.
