Calmar is a small residential neighborhood along Beach Street, close to Bethune Point Park and the Halifax Harbor Marina. For those who like to put in a few rounds of golf on a regular basis, the Daytona Beach Golf Club is within walking distance. For the foodie in you, many of the city's top restaurants are within a fifteen minute drive. However, if you want a pet supply store or shopping amenities, you may have a little drive ahead of you. Fortunately, almost everything you need is nearby, keeping your commuting time down and ensuring that you can reach whatever you need fairly easily.
Daytona is definitely the place to be in the summertime with daytime highs in the upper 90s and lower 100s. The only hard thing to get used to is the humidity which typically matches the outside temperature and can make you miserable if you're not prepared for it!
As a residential community, the flat terrain is the epitome of suburban Daytona without being so far from the amenities you need and want. When it comes to walking, you have a little more of an advantage in that you are a short walk from Bethune Point Park, a sports park with plenty of grass for you to enjoy. The rest of your walking nearby will likely be done on the sidewalks and streets.
Once the outside temperatures hit the 80s, you should be taking your walks in the morning before paved surfaces reach extreme temperatures, especially in the Florida climate which can be moderately unforgivable. Stick to areas with plenty of shade or take advantage of the local greenways to keep your pup's paws comfortable and safe. Alternatively, invest in a pair of doggy boots that can help protect your dog's feet on even the hottest of days in Calmar.
The nearest green space is Bethune Point Park which is virtually across the street. The park has room for multiple sports fields and lots of grass for you and your pooch to run around on. However, be sure your dog stays on a leash and that you take bags with you to clean up.
If you don't mind walking to the end of S Beach Street, there is a small park-like area of trees and grass or, alternatively, you can take the footbridge over to the island in the Halifax River. There is plenty of room for both of you to stretch your legs and there is a small beach for your pup to use if they want to cool off in the Halifax River.
Finally, you are only a ten to fifteen minute drive over to the beachside where you and your pooch can enjoy all 23 miles of Daytona Beach.
