Fairway Estates is a single-family home community on the west side of the Daytona Beach Golf Course, making it the perfect place to live if you are an avid golfer. The beach is a fifteen-minute drive as are many of the top restaurants and clubs.
You are close to a couple of small parks that are dog-friendly, but if you want a fenced-in dog park, it's going to be a bit of a drive. This being said, living in Fairway Estates puts you close enough to everything the city has to offer without being on top of it. You are only a short drive from the Daytona International Airport, Daytona Beach International Speedway, the home of NASCAR, and the Volusia Mall.
Summers here can be a lot of fun if you like hot weather as the temperatures spend weeks in the 90s. This is perfect for surfing, playing on the beach, swimming, or hiding in the air conditioning.
The terrain here is what you would expect to find in a planned community in Daytona. The ground has been bulldozed flat, the streets were laid in grid-style, and the houses were built from a small selection of designs. At least the developers thought to put in sidewalks for you and your pup to walk along and to provide you with endless blocks of similar neighborhoods to walk around!
In fact, with the absence of hills of any kind, you and your pup will need these blocks to ensure you get enough exercise every day. When faced with terrain such as this, the best thing you can for your dog is to change which blocks the two of you walk around on a frequent basis. The more variety you add to your walks, the more fun both of you will have and the more you both will look forward to going for your daily hike.
Greenways only count if you and your pup are welcome. This means that the Daytona Beach Golf Course doesn't count! But there are a few parks nearby for you, your family, and and your dog to visit from time to time.
The nearest is the Samuel L. Butts Archeological Park. In this spot, Butts not only found hundreds of spearheads and tools left by the Timucuan Indians, but he also found parts of a Wooly Mammoth skeleton from the Ice Age! Today, the park is a small lake with a walking trail running around it.
A little further away is Tuscawilla Park that started as a disc golf course with 65 pins and lots of obstacles. Today, the park includes a large area of woods with trails for you and Fido to enjoy and the Daytona Beach Zipline Adventures attraction which the kids are sure to enjoy while you and your pup check out the woods.
