Brinkley is an area of single-family homes near the Samuel L. Butts Archeological Park. For those of you who like to dine out from time to time, you are short drive away from several outstanding places to eat such as Robinson Bros BBQ and the Chart House. Daytona is a "foodies" paradise, no matter what type of cuisine your tastes run to.
Daytona has something going on for just about everyone! For NASCAR fans, there is the Daytona International Speedway. For the beach lover and surfer, there is the World's Most Famous Beach. For the dog lover, there are numerous state parks located all around the area and, of course, for those who love the nightlife, the beachside is lined with outstanding nightclubs.
If you love the sun, it stays in the 90s all summer long! If you hate the snow, it doesn't snow here. Take your pick as there are plenty of good reasons to live in this area!
Despite the fact that the terrain here is pretty flat and boring, there are plenty of opportunities to get out there and take your pup for walks. The blocks of houses here are laid out in a grid-like pattern which you can use to create different walking routes for each day of the week. Your dog does their exploring with their nose, so as far as they are concerned, the more changes you make to where you take your walks, the happier they are!
At the same time, however, you should be aware of the potential damage to your dog's paws. The roughness of the paved surfaces can rub through the protective layer, causing pain and discomfort. Protect your pup's paws from both abrasion damage and burns by investing in some doggy boots or taking your walks during the cooler times of day. You dog will surely thank you for it!
The nearest green space is the Samuel L. Butts Archeological Park which is now home to a large lake with an island in the middle. You and your dog can use the walking trail running around the park and out onto the island as an alternative to walking along the streets.
If you would like to have somewhere to go with the whole family for a picnic, there is Tuscawilla Park. This park was built as a disc golf course in the early 90s and now includes trails in the woods, places to picnic, and the Daytona Zipline Adventures to keep the kids happy.
If you don't mind a bit of a drive, there is always the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area. With over 30,000 acres of forest and trails to discover, the two of you should be quite happy wandering around for hours at a time searching for a glimpse of the many different creatures who call the WMA home.
