For those who live on the western side of Tumbleweed Trail in Hidden Village, there is a creek at the end of your backyard. For everyone else, this is just your average suburban neighborhood with modest homes packed closely together, creating a tight-knit family atmosphere. You are close enough to the main shopping area of town to find what you need, but far enough out to enjoy a little peace and quiet at the end of the day.
For shopping, all up and down Dunlawton Avenue, there are strip malls, a Publix supermarket, and a Walmart Supercenter. You should be able to find everything you need within a ten-minute drive of your home without having to deal with crowds of shoppers right on your doorstep.
Living here also puts you close to parks and other green spaces where you and your dog can go for walks and enjoy a little playtime together in the fresh air and sunshine.
Hidden Village lives up to its name. It's a quiet little community tucked away, just off busy Spruce Creek Road. You and your pooch should be able to walk around the neighborhood at most times of the day. There may be a little traffic during rush hours, but even that is limited to residents!
The ground is flat, but there are sidewalks for the two of you to use for your walks together. If you cross Spruce Creek Road, there is a footpath that runs from the industrial park to the north down to Buschman Park at the corner of Sanders Road. Just the hike to the park and back is an excellent way to add distance to your strolls when you need more. There is also a walking trail all the way around the lake in neighboring Margaret Buschman Parcel for the two of you to enjoy. That should keep you going for a while!
The two most obvious green spaces are Buschman Park and neighboring Margaret Buschman Parcel. Together, these parks cover a vast area that includes places for the kids to play, shade to hold a picnic in, a lake to walk around, and plenty of room for you and your dog to run around and play.
From your home here, the beaches of Wilbur-by-the-Sea and Daytona Beach Shores are only a few minutes' drive to the east. Dunlawton Avenue will take you all the way there and you can park your car on the sand! From here, you can use the soft, dry dunes to give your legs a good workout. It's a great way to build both leg muscles and stamina. Then you can use the wet sand for the walk home, making sure you take out a little time for a refreshing swim with your pup in the warm waters of the Atlantic.
