The community of Fairway sits on the southwest side of the Daytona Beach Golf Club and Course. The community as a whole was carefully planned by the developers and laid out in perfect grid-like fashion. Between this and the cookie cutter style houses, it can take a bit of getting used to before you stop getting lost on your way home.
However, living here puts you close to everything you could ever want. There are excellent restaurants nearby. There are also public parks you can enjoy with your pup at your side. Pet supply stores, however, will require a little bit of a drive outside of the neighborhood.
Like the sun? You'll love Daytona as the area starts to warm up in February and hits the 90s in June where it will stay for weeks on end before cooling down to the 50s and 60s during the winter months.
The terrain here is very regimented suburbia with block after block of homes that look the same and where the ground is almost entirely flat. There is a golf course next door, but chances are pretty good that no one will appreciate you taking Fido out on the fairways for walks.
This being said, it's time for you to put on your thinking cap. You might be surprised at just how much you and your pup can get out of the terrain. The trick is to use the blocks of houses to create a variety of walking routes that take you around different blocks and in different directions every day. The more you can do this, the happier your pup is likely to be and the more willing they will be to go out walking.
Remember to take your walks early in the morning during the summer months before the ground becomes hot and uncomfortable.
Within Fairways itself, there isn't anything in the way of usable green space. But you are close enough to the Samuel L. Butts Archeological Park to walk there.
The park was once a dig site back around the turn of the 20th Century in which Samuel L. Butts found countless spearheads, pottery shards, and more from the Timucuan Indians who called this area home some 1,500 years ago. He also discovered skeletal fragments from an Ice Age Wooly Mammoth!
If you and Fido don't mind going for a bit of a drive, you can cruise out west to the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area and Tiger Bay State Forest. Covering well over 30,000 acres of Florida pine-palmetto and cypress swamp, the WMA offers miles of trails for you to hike along. Be sure you bring plenty of water, mosquito repellent, and a bowl for your pup to drink out of when they get thirsty.
