The Americano Beach Lodge Resort sits on the beach a little north of the main attractions of beachside Daytona. You are close enough to the action to be able to enjoy it while you are staying here without being on top of it. If you like to eat out, Steve's Famous Diner is five minutes north on A1A and to the south, you have places like Atlantic Jack's, Doc Bales, and the Ocean Deck Restaurant and Lounge. The Ocean Deck is also one of the most popular nightclubs in town with an open-air deck right out on the beach that is open most evenings for dancing.
The summer weather here is lovely with temperatures in the 90s, long days of seemingly endless sunshine, and only the occasional thunderstorm to worry about. Winters offer mild temperatures in the 50s and 60s with never a sign of snow in the forecast!
The terrain here is a blend of beach on one side and residential on the other. How you use it to take your pup for walks is entirely up to you. To get the most out of your walks here, you can take turns walking through the neighborhoods to the west using their sidewalks on certain days and walking on the beach the rest of the time.
Both the pavement and the sand do present a heat issue in the summer as they can both become hot enough to burn your dog's paws. The sidewalk, however, has another problem you need to be aware of. This is that it can grind away at the skin covering Fido's paws. This could lead to infection or serious injury. With this in mind, if you are going to let your pup walk on the pavement, keep an eye on the condition of their paws as you go along.
You live next to the largest green space in the area: the beach! It offers soft sand on one side for you and Fido to slog through on your outbound journey and easy to walk on wet sand for the two of you to return home on. While the seagulls are fun to look at on your walks, remember to never feed them! They can very easily get a little overwhelming.
For somewhere different, you and your pooch can take off for the Addison Blockhouse Historic State Park. Here stand the ruins of the Addison Blockhouse or what is left of this coquina rock building. Like the neighboring Bulow Plantation, the Addison Plantation, owned by Duncan McRae at the time, was destroyed during the Second Seminole War. The park offers plenty of cabbage palms and live oaks creating a shady canopy for you and your four-legged friend to hike under.
