Edmondson is a neighborhood of single-family homes off of South Street and Dr. MLK Jr Boulevard. While the houses here are older, the community is very well-kept and centrally-located to just about everything the city has to offer.
For those of you who like to eat out or enjoy the nightlife, it's only a short drive to a fabulous selection of restaurants and clubs both here on the mainland side and over along A1A. Living here also puts you close to the Samuel L. Butts Archeological Park. As an added plus, the Daytona Beach Golf Club is only a few blocks away.
Summers here are in the 90s with lots of blue skies while winters are mild with the temperatures in the upper 40s and low 50s. Just keep in mind that your dog can be susceptible to heat stroke when it's hot outside. Be sure to take your walks in the early morning in summer when it's cooler outside!
The terrain here is mostly flat and suburban in nature. To find ways to keep your walks with your dog interesting, you will need to put on your thinking cap.
Keep in mind that your dog loves to explore by using their nose which is 40 times more sensitive than yours! If you want your pup to really enjoy their outings with you, your best bet is to keep changing the areas you walk around. While dogs are creatures of habit to a certain extent, they don't like smelling the same strip of sidewalk day in and day out. The more variety you can put into your walks, the better.
As it's something worth noting, the pavement on a summer day in Florida will quickly heat up to temperatures above 120°F. You can fry an egg at this temperature, so be especially careful with your pup's sensitive paws when you venture out for your daily walk.
While there is not much in the way of green space in the neighborhood, just a few blocks away, you have the Samuel L. Butts Archeological Park where you and Fido can make circuits around the lake on the walking trail. Luckily, it's only a few minutes-walk along South Street to the west. It's also a good place for you and your pup to stretch your legs and go somewhere you can walk without cement.
A little further away on Nova Road is Tuscawilla Park, the home of Daytona Beach Zipline Adventure and a 65-pin disc golf course. It's also home to a small copse of woods, walking trails, and places for your whole family to have a great picnic. This is a good place to spend time with friends and other locals, play a little Frisbee golf, and get in some play time with your dog! They are sure to enjoy it with you.
