Seaside Villas Condo sits on the west side of A1A, which affords you a spectacular view of the sunrise while you are out walking your dog. Living here, you will find that most of your neighbors are more condos filled with others who come to enjoy the great weather New Smyrna Beach experiences all year round.
There are a few small restaurants nearby along with several stores, but if you want anything else such as groceries, dog food, or more restaurants, it's a short drive to E 3rd Avenue where there is a Publix and several more places to eat. However, this a bustling area, so take care driving here.
Living here puts you between the beach to the east and an aquatic preserve to the west. Both offer you and your dog things to do together. One offers playing on the coast and in the water while the other is going for a canoe or boat ride in the waterways!
This is a relatively busy area with lots of vehicular traffic on A1A and plenty of people wandering around on the sidewalks as they go to and from the beach. Taking your dog out for walks can be challenging, depending on what time of day you go out. The best time of day is early in the morning. Not only will you find it to be more comfortable temperature-wise, but you will find the streets far less crowded.
One thing you will find on the beach that you might not find in many other places is motorized vehicles. Anyone can drive on the sand here which can be a lot of fun for the driver, but at the same time, can pose serious risks to anyone walking on the dunes, including your dog. To avoid the cars and people, the best time of day to get out is in the early morning before it gets busy.
When it comes to green spaces, you have the beach to the east with miles of sand for the two of you to hike along. Keep in mind that you can use the soft sand to build stamina on the way out. You can also use the wet sand and surf for much less strenuous walks!
Grab a canoe or boat and take your dog for a ride in the many waterways that comprise the Mosquito Lagoon Aquatic Preserve. The preserve covers many square miles, though you should probably travel with your GPS set to track your trip to prevent you from joining the dozens of others who get lost here every year.
If you are ready for some serious hiking with your dog, it’s a very short drive to the Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve. Here, the two of you can hike over three miles of nature trails running through the forests, swamps, and scrub lands within the preserve.
