The Landmark Condominium sits on a prime location directly across from the Daytona Marina on Beach Street. From here, you can walk to City Island and the Jackie Robinson Memorial Stadium and a walking trail that runs along the Halifax River. For those who like to eat out, you are ten minutes or less from many of the top restaurants in Daytona Beach. You are also a ten-minute drive from the beachside where there are nightclubs, restaurants, and 23 miles of coast for you and Spot to take your walks on.
If you like the nightlife, imagine being able to dance on a beachfront deck under the stars with summer lows in the 70s, allowing you to dance the night away. As a bonus, the winters here average in the 50s and 60s, making it possible to hit the trail or the sand almost every day of the year.
Beyond the lawns around the condo building, the bulk of the terrain here is flat and urban in nature. Thankfully, most of the blocks have sidewalks and there is plenty of grass on the other side of Beach Street if you take the path leading to the Halifax Harbor Marina. The path allows you to walk on paved surfaces, but at the same time, it allows your pooch to walk on the grass, which will be much easier on their paws.
The sun in this area of Florida can be brutal around the warmer months. Exercise caution as you venture out onto roads or sidewalks to ensure that your pooch doesn't harm their paw pads. Alternatively, keep to the grassy berms on the sides of the road or venture to a nearby park to allow for lots of playtime on cooler surfaces like dirt and grass.
Although the condo does have its own landscaped lawns, they are really not the place to take Spot for walks. Thankfully, there are the grassy areas alongside the trail out to the marina. If you don't mind walking north on Beach Street to the other side of Orange Avenue, there is a walking trail the two of you can follow all the way up to the Main Street Bridge. The trail takes you along wide areas of grass where your pup can run around on their leash. Please be sure you carry bags with you clean up any messes along the way.
Then there is the beach which is only a ten-minute drive over the Silver Beach Avenue Bridge. With soft sand that can give you both an intense workout and wet, hard-packed sand and surf to play in, you can't beat coming out here early in the morning before the beach fills up with cars and tourists.
