Cedar Point is a residential community sandwiched between the Samuel L. Butts Archeological Park and the Daytona Beach Golf Course. Living here puts you close to the action without having to live on top of it. For example, when NASCAR is in town, you will be able to hear the cars, but you won't have to deal with the heavy race traffic!
You are close to many of the top restaurants in town, some on this side of the Halifax River while others are over on the beachside. Daytona offers an incredible variety of cuisine to sample including Italian, Jamaican, Chinese, and many others.
If you are a sun worshipper, you are going to love the summer here with temperatures in the 90s and endless weeks of clear blue skies. Luckily, the winters are nothing to sneeze at either with January temperatures in the low 50s and never a sign of snow in the forecast.
The terrain here is relatively flat and suburban in nature with block after block of single-family homes to take Fido for walks around. You can also take them for walks around the lake in the center of the Samuel L. Butts Archeological Park. The park itself is an aquatic and waterfowl preserve founded on the site where Samuel L. Butts discovers a mound of artifacts such as bone joints, spearheads, and more left by the Timucuan Indians over 1,500 years ago. He also found parts of the skeletal remains of a wooly mammoth from the Ice Age.
Between walks around the lake and taking in as many blocks as the two of you can handle each time you head out, you and your playful pup should be able to put in some serious walking time which will go a long way towards helping both you and your dog to remain happy and healthy.
Beyond the archeological park, the next nearest park is Tuscawilla Park. This park started out in 1993 as a 65-pin disc golf course. Since then, the park has grown to include Daytona Beach Zipline Adventures and a large section of woods complete with picnic areas and a nature trail for.
Beyond this, you can go east to the beach or west out to the Tiger Bay State Forest and Wildlife Management Area. The beach is a great place to take Fido for walks as the soft sand will give both of you a great workout. But if it's woods and trails you desire, then the Tiger Bay WMA might be a better choice as there are over 30,000 acres of dense woods and miles of trails for the two of you to hike along. Be sure you bring plenty of water for everyone, including a water bowl for your dog along with your favorite mosquito repellent.
