Citrus Manor is a neighborhood of single-family homes on Wayne Avenue close to the Chisholm Elementary School and the New Smyrna Beach Golf Course. Living here puts you in a nice central location for just about everything you could ever need. The homes here are newer and the neighborhood is well-kept. Being here also puts you right next door to the beach.
At the same time, you are within five to ten minutes of essential amenities such as grocery stores, pet supply stores, bars, and plenty of green spaces. The community is only ten to fifteen minutes from the beach where you will find miles of spectacular sand to walk on, incredible waves to surf, and the spectacularly warm summer waters of the Atlantic. Summers here are hot and humid, but the winters offset this with mild temperatures in the 60s and 70s, ensuring you and your dog can go for walks every day.
Because Citrus Manor is primarily a residential community, you and your dog should have no problem going for walks. The only times of the day you are likely to encounter heavy traffic in the neighborhood are during rush hours in the morning and evening. You will also have to deal with the school buses coming through. To avoid this, all you have to do is plan your long walks around these times.
Do keep in mind that Wayne Avenue is a bustling road serving a number of residential communities and it tends to be very busy during rush hours. There are plenty of other places you can take your dog for daily walks without having to cross this road at any time. There are sidewalks around the outside of the community, but not on the residential streets themselves. You must pay attention to the traffic to ensure your safety.
The nearest green space is the golf course, but you are not permitted to walk your dog on the greens. However, you are only a few minutes from several of the entrances into the Spruce Creek Preserve. Here, you and your pup can hike along miles of trails that run through the swamps and forests ending at Rose Bay. It's a great place to walk your dog and very popular with dog-walkers and hikers!
On the other side of the bridge is the beach, a fifteen-minute drive to the east. The beach is an amazing green space! Starting at Ponce Inlet, the beach offers you plenty of soft sand to give legs muscles and lungs a good workout. It also offers you wet sand that is fun to walk on and the warm water to go swimming in to cool off before heading back home.
