Gordon Court is a small area of single-family homes near the Halifax River and the Fairview Avenue Bridge. For those who like to eat out, there are a few restaurants nearby on US 92 International Speedway Boulvard and the best eateries over on the beachside. You'll enjoy being in the heart of town where no matter where you go, you can find great places to eat, outstanding nightclubs over on the beachside, and even a few acres of grass to enjoy. On top of this, you are only a short drive from the World's Most Famous Beach where you and your dog can wander along the soft sand dunes or go for a jog along the edge of the surf.
With summers in the 90s and winters in the 50s, you won't find many days where the weather will keep you from venturing out on your daily walks.
The land here is flat enough that it has absolutely no exciting hills to climb. But if you let that dissuade you from doing more than the obligatory walk around the block, you will be cheating your pup out of much-needed exercise!
You have so many walking opportunities in this area. The only limitations to where the two of you go are your imagination and your desire to get out there.
For example, if you walk to the east end of Michigan Avenue, there is a walking path running along the Halifax River that goes north past the Main St. Bridge or south past W International Speedway Blvd. The path can also take you out to an island in the river where the two of you can run around and play. The more you put your imagination to work for you, the more fun you and your dog are going to have on your daily walks.
With so many advantages to living in Gordon Court, there has to be a downside. This downside is the lack of useable green space at hand. The nearest is the Riverside Park. If you would prefer something a little bigger, you must be prepared to drive. No matter which direction you go, the Daytona Beach area has something to offer.
To the east is the World's Most Famous Beach with miles of beautiful sand and surf to enjoy. To the south is the Smyrna Dunes Park with sand, scrub, the beach, and the ocean for you and your dog to play in. To the north are Bulow Creek and Tomoka State Parks with plenty of deep woods, the Historic Bulow Plantation ruins, and the 1,500-year-old Timucuan Village of Nocoroco to explore.
Finally, to the west, you can enjoy miles of trails taking you through over 30,000 acres of Florida forests and local wildlife to search for on your hikes.
