Mediterranean Condo sits right on Daytona Beach and is close to the Bellair Shopping Plaza anchored by a Publix grocery store. Living on the beachside puts you close to some of the best restaurants in town serving everything from seafood to steaks and everything in between.
If you live for the nightlife, beachside Daytona has several fantastic nightclubs where you can dance the night away to your favorite music. Some like the Ocean Deck have outdoor decks that let you take the dance out under the stars. However, if you are looking for a dog park, it means making a trip across to the mainland side of town.
Summers here are nothing less than spectacular with daytime temperatures in the 90s and seemingly endless blue skies for you and Fido to enjoy. When the temperatures get this hot, however, consider taking your walks early in the morning before things get too hot to handle.
The terrain around the Mediterranean Condo is suburban in nature with beachfront on the other side. If you prefer easy walks, you can take your daily strolls on the sidewalks and use the many nearby residential blocks to create a variety of walking routes. The more variety you can build into these walks, the better.
Do keep the temperature of the pavement in mind when you decide to go for your daily walks. By midday in the hotter months, the pavement can cause some pain if it lacks proper shade. This is another good reason for taking your walks early in the morning.
The other alternative is to visit the beach where you can use the soft sand to build up the muscles in your legs. When you reach the end of your walk, you can come back using the cool, wet sand and surf or you can utilize the sidewalk running along A1A.
The only significant open space in the area is the beach which gives you miles of sand and surf to walk, jog, and play on. But if you want something a little greener, it's only a short drive north over on the mainland to Tomoka State Park.
The park straddles the Tomoka River and offers a half-mile long nature trail for the two of you to walk on. Tomoka State Park is also home to the remains of a 1,500-year-old Timucuan Indian village. This village was built here because the river and nearby ponds and lakes were overflowing with fish which provided a primary food source. Today, the park is home to more than 160 different species of birds along with numerous other animals including black bears, whitetail deer, and many more. Be sure to keep your eyes open. You never know what you might see as you walk along!
