Driggers is a residential community of single-family homes sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River North. Living here puts you less than a five-minute walk from the beach. It's the perfect location for those who love to swim or enjoy the amazing surf. It's also the ideal place for those who love hot summers and warm winters. Living here means being able to take your dog for walks on most days of the year!
The community is close to historic Flagler Avenue where you can enjoy the many boutiques and eclectic shops that line the streets, along with great restaurants and taverns to spend evenings in. If you need more in the way of shopping, there is a Publix grocery store where you can stock the fridge and pick up food for your dog. They also carry a large selection of essential pet supplies to help keep your pup happy and healthy.
Being this far north on the peninsula and having a home in the residential area means being in a relatively quiet area of town. The only real traffic you and your dog are likely to encounter is during morning and evening rush hours and along N Atlantic Avenue which is the main north-south road in this part of town.
During peak tourist season, N Atlantic Avenue tends to be a bustling road for both vehicular traffic and pedestrians thanks to the many condominiums lining the beach. When walking your dog on this road, you need to keep them on a short leash and pay close attention to the traffic to avoid the risk of being run over by a wayward car or tourist. The same applies to the beach. Motorized vehicles are allowed on the sand, making it a little less safe than others where vehicles are not permitted.
The biggest green space near Driggers is, of course, the beach which runs for many miles to the south from Ponce Inlet. The sands here offer the two of you an unusual and excellent place to get in plenty of exercise. The dry sand tends to be soft, making it harder to walk and giving your leg muscles a great workout. For the return trip, you can stick to the wet sand at the water's edge. It is much easier to walk on and you have the water in case you decide to go for a dip.
A few blocks to the north will take you to the Grayce K. Barch Park and North Beach Community Park. Both offer shaded trails to walk on and the Community Park adds direct access to the beach and one of the few beachside firepit areas in Volusia County, making it a great place to take the entire family for a day out.
