Davis is short street over on Beachside from which you can see the ocean and go to sleep with the sound of the waves crashing on the beach each night. This is an older area of the beachside, but the houses here are in good repair. While most of the houses are single-family, there are apartments nearby and you are only a short walk from the beach. Like most of the beachside, there are plenty of places to eat, including a restaurant serving Indian cuisine right on the corner of the street. There are parks and pet supply stores within driving distance.
Summers on Beachside are superb with endless days of sunshine and temperatures in the 90s. Even the winters are great here. It's warm enough to spend Christmas Day on the beach and Spring Break leaves the town filled with thousands of college kids who come here for the warm weather.
The terrain on the beachside is flat, sandy, and, in this particular case, old. The sidewalks are often cracked and crumbled, but they beat walking on the streets. While Davis might be a short street running between S. Grandview Ave. and A1A, no one ever said you have to stick to walking on just one street.
If you want to stick to walking on paved surfaces, there are plenty of blocks for you to explore all up and down the peninsula. Living in Daytona Beach also means living with pavement that is far too hot for Fido to walk on during the hottest parts of the day. When the sun is shining and the outside temperature is in the 90s, the pavement can be 145°F or more. Since you can fry an egg at 120°F, imagine what 145°F can do to your pup's paws. Take your walks early in the morning before things have a chance to heat up.
Being on the beachside gives you access to miles of beach, but if you want green space, you won't find much more than a couple of smaller parks. They are good enough to take Fido out for short walks and a little bit of play time. However, you are only a short drive from Bulow Creek State Park to the north on A1A. This free access state park covers approximately 5,600 acres of which over 1,500 are underwater. The park has multiple trails for you and Fido to explore, including the Bulow Woods Trail that measures almost seven miles long. The hike will take you and Fido to the Bulow Plantation Historic State Park.
The park is also home to the Fairchild Oak which is reputed to be one of the oldest live oaks in the southern U.S. It is estimated to be 400 years old and has seen much history, including the Second Seminole War, fought in 1836.
