Botefuhr is a street running between S. Peninsular Dr and A1A on the beachside. This street is home to single-family and multi-family homes. While the area might be :well-established," those who live here work hard to keep their street clean. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from all up and down A1A serving up a wealth of international and American cuisine.
Being sandwiched between the beach and the Halifax River offers you the best possible living conditions during the summer when the temperatures are in the high 90s. The breezes coming in off the ocean help keep things cooled off, especially at night. While summers here can be brutally hot, winters are the opposite in that they are comfortably mild. Most people who live here will only require a light jacket in January and, by the time February comes, the weather is already starting to warm up!
Like most of the Daytona Beach area, especially on the beachside, the terrain here is pretty flat and uninteresting. Luckily, most of the streets here have sidewalks for you and Fido to walk on.
Being flat doesn't mean your walks have to be dull. In fact, flat terrain is perfect for young puppies, overweight dogs, and older dogs who are starting to slow down. The only real trick is to keep your excursions interesting. The way to do this is to choose different blocks to walk around each time you go out or perhaps shake things up by taking a different route.
Of course, you do need to be careful about what time of day you head out for walks. The heat of the day can cause the pavement in the streets and sidewalks to heat up, causing some pain and discomfort to unprotected puppy paws. Consider heading out earlier or later in the day to prevent injury.
When it comes to green spaces along Botefuhr Ave., the only thing you have to work with is yards and the free beach parking lot at the end of the street. There are several small parks up and down A1A you can cruise up to for a quick jaunt out on some grass.
If you are up for some challenging terrain and miles of trails to walk along, it's only a short drive to Tiger Bay State Forest. The forest is a unique blend of embedded pine islands, vast areas of swamp, and an untold quantity of the local wildlife. Although approximately 15,000 acres of the forest burned in the Summer Wildfire Firestorm of 1998, it has since been reborn with all new growth and offers you and your dog a spectacular place to go walking on the weekends when the weather is good. Don't worry! The weather is good almost every day of the year!
