The Concord Condos are located along US-1 only a block from the Halifax River and just north of the Daytona Beach Golf Course. Living here puts you within an easy driving distance of a fabulous selection of restaurants serving up a wealth of international cuisines for you to sample. Pet supply stores are only a short drive away as are dog parks, but there is a large island just off the west bank of the Halifax River with a footpath out to it where you can take Fido out for walks.
For anyone who is new to the Daytona Beach area, the summers here are to die for and consist of weeks of blue skies and temperatures in the 90s. Living here in the winters is even better. December is warm enough to go for walks on the beach and January is the coldest month, but it only goes as low as the upper 40s during the day.
The terrain here is urban in nature in that the condos sit right on Ridgewood Avenue, one of the busiest streets in town. Luckily, you are close to the west bank of the Halifax River and a small island that gives you somewhere besides the pavement to walk on.
If you choose to walk on the sidewalks, be sure you try to vary the blocks you walk around as often as you can. The more variety you can build into each of your walks, the more your pup will enjoy them! Remember that they use their nose to explore and the more "new" scents you can expose them to, the more they will look forward to your daily walks!
Remember to keep an eye on the temperature of any paved surface you expect your pooch to walk on. If you can't hold the back of your hand on it for ten seconds, don't expect puppy paws to walk on it!
There are several greenways nearby, including the Daytona Beach Golf Club, the island just to the east, and Bethune Point Park. At least two of these you can take your pup out for walks on as long as they are leashed.
If you don't mind going for a bit of a drive, you can take your pooch out to the Ocala National Forest which is listed as the "southernmost forest in the Continental U.S." The forest covers 607 square miles and includes over 600 lakes, springs, and rivers. The forest is home to a vast network of hiking trails that take you and Fido through some of the most pristine forestlands you are likely to encounter anywhere in the state.
Be sure to keep your eyes peeled as you hike as the forest is home to bears, wild boars, and numerous other animals, many of which can be hazardous to humans and dogs.
