Marine Terrace, also known as Marine Terrace Resort, is a condominium located right on the beach, next door to the Hampton Inn Daytona Beach Beachfront. Being located right on the beachfront offers you a chance to sit back and watch the sunrise over the ocean. It also offers you excellent access to a vast array of restaurants serving up international and domestic cuisine for you to sample.
If you want a dog park or pet supply store, however, you should be prepared to drive as there aren't very many of them in the area. But when you stop to consider the fact you live on the beach and you have miles of sand to walk on, what more could you ask for? Good weather? There's no shortage of this with winters in the 40s at its low point and summers in the 90s. You won't find many days when you can't go for a walk.
Living on the beachside means living with flat, sandy ground. Living in a condo means living
not only with flat ground, but with very little in the way of grounds
around the building. When it comes to going for walks, you have only
two choices. First, you can use the sidewalks running up and down A1A and let them use the empty lots to use the bathroom. Alternatively, you can do the right thing and take your pup out in the early morning hours when the weather is cooler and the beaches haven't
had time become crowded.
The beach offers two types of walking: a hard slog through the soft sand that will give both of you a workout and much easier walking on the wet sand for your trip home. As an added bonus, your pooch gets the chance to run around and play in the surf, something they are sure to enjoy.
Like many areas of the beachside, there really isn't much in the nearby vicinity. Most people find the beach to be enough of a green space to make up for the lack of parks. Thankfully, you are only a few miles from Tomoka State Park, Tomoka Marsh Aquatic Preserve, and Bulow Creek State Park.
Between the three of these parks, you will find thousands of acres that include swamps, pine islands, dense, old growth forests, places to go fishing, place to canoe and kayak, and places for you and your family to have picnics. At the same time, there are miles of trails to explore.
While you are hiking the various trails, be sure to keep an eye out for the many hundreds of different animals, reptiles, and birds who call this area home. These are only three of the state parks and preserves in the area. There are still others such as the Tiger Bay State Forest and the Relay Wildlife Management Area.
