Lee of The Wind is a modern community of single-family homes sitting on the Turnbull Creek tributaries that lead out to the Halifax River. If your idea of a great day off is getting in 18 holes, you live just down the road from the New Smyrna Beach Golf Course. However, if you need pet supplies for Spot, it's a bit of a drive to the nearest pet supply store. The same applies to finding restaurants as they are all back in the center of town.
For those that love the beach, it's only a fifteen-minute drive to the east. Lucky for them too, beach weather persists year round as the area spends a large part of the year in the 80 to 90-degree range. Even January is comfortable with temperatures in the upper 60s. You and Spot won't find many days during the year when you won't be able to go for a walk.
The terrain here is what you might expect of a carefully planned community. There are no steep hills to contend with as the entirety of the community is really just one main street! But that does leave you at a bit of a loss when it comes to places to stroll. Watch for private property and stay on Sea Street which will take you out and into other nearby neighborhoods for a bit more options for your daily walks.
Avoid venturing to the west, as there isn't any paved walking space for you to utilize. The river and swampland are your only options in that direction, so you'll want to explore further east instead. Sea Street will take walkers down to Fairway Drive which will provide multiple other opportunities for walking.
Luckily, with how well the streets are laid out in this neighborhood, you'll never struggle to find your way back home.
Lee of The Wind sits on the tributaries for Turnbull Creek and numerous man-made canals on one side. It also sits next to the New Smyrna Beach Golf Course on the other. Beyond this, if you want a little open space for you to stretch your legs, the best place to go is over to the beach and then up to Smyrna Dunes Park.
The park offers plenty of room for you and your pooch to romp around on. The park is home to several different ecosystems to explore, though you'll want to keep your pup on a leash as there are no fenced-in areas for pups only. Once you have both gone through your daily exercise regiment, you can consider finding a place to swim along the Halifax River, provided the regulations allow it. This could be the perfect way to cool off for both you and your four-legged friend.
