The community of Indigo is broken into several sub-divisions surrounded by the golf course. The community as a whole runs along I-95 to the west and International Speedway Blvd. to the south. If you're a NASCAR fan, you will love being here as the track is literally right across the street. For those who travel, Daytona Beach International Airport is right behind the track.
There is no lack of places to eat along this section of US 92. You'll also only be a short drive from pet supply stores, the Volusia Mall, and three Walmart Supercenters.
If you like hot weather and hanging out in the hot sunshine, you are going to love living here. Grab your clubs and head out on the links for a round of 18 holes or grab Fido and head for the beach. Either way, with highs in the 90s all summer long and moderate weather in the winter, you are sure to have a good time.
The terrain here is a blend of suburbia and golf course with a few small spots of woods tossed in for good measure. For walking your pup, you will have to stick to the sidewalks which, fortunately, run throughout the entire community. You can start with walks within Indigo until both of you are ready to take on more distance. By the time you can walk around all the neighborhoods in the Indigo Lakes, you two will be ready to take on a marathon!
There are a few things you need to know about walking on the paved terrain in Florida. First, the surface of the pavement can be exceptionally rough. Second, this can cause serious damage to your pup's paws. Finally, in the summer, the pavement can reach temperatures in excess of 135°F. Temperatures this high can cause discomfort and burns. Avoid any damage by investing in some doggy boots or venturing out at more appropriate times.
While Indigo might be sitting in the middle of a beautiful golf course, this is not a place for you and Fido to go walking. If you are looking for a fenced-in dog park where your pooch can run around, it's a short drive up I-95 to the Community Dog Park at the Halifax Humane Society. Here, volunteers have built a wonderful park with sections for larger and smaller dogs, designed to give them plenty of room to run around. Each section has watering fountains for the dogs, agility obstacles, and lots of shady seating for owners to relax on.
If you're looking for trails to hike, then you can always take your dog and cruise out to the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area. Here, you and them can hike the miles of trails running through the 30,000 acres of cypress swamps, pine-palmettos, and more that go into making up the WMA.
