Noble is a small section of single-family homes over on the beachside, two blocks from the coast. Living here puts you close to the Peabody Auditorium where you can catch some concerts and events. There are plenty of great places to eat! For those who are into Bike Week, the only way you could live any closer to Main Street would be if you had an apartment above one of the stores or bars along it.
While there might not be much in the way of parks nearby, you do have the beach where you and your pup can walk and play to your heart's content. Summers on the beachside mean temperatures in the 90s, endless days of sunshine, and lots of time to go walking on the sand. Luckily, you don't have to wait for summer to go for walkies. You can even walk along the beach in January as the winters are nice and mild!
The terrain here is densely packed with older homes surrounded by the businesses along Main Street including several bars and restaurants. Thankfully, there are plenty of sidewalks for you and your pup to use for your daily walks. The ground is pretty flat, however, and doesn't have a lot to offer in the way of a challenge.
While there is nothing wrong with taking Fido for walks on paved surfaces like sidewalks and paved roads, there are risks that you should be aware of. One, paved surfaces are typically rough in texture that has the ability to cause some abrasions and discomfort to your dog's paws. The rough surfaces can rub them raw unless you give them time to toughen up. Two, during the summer months, paved surfaces are hot enough to become hot and uncomfortable. This can lead to a serious damper on your walking time. Exercise caution around this season to prevent injury.
Unfortunately, living on this part of the beachside doesn't come with much in the way of parks. But with the beach only two blocks away, this might not be a problem! The coast is a wonderful place to walk, jog, and play. The soft sand makes for a great workout. Not only does it help build up leg muscles, but it also builds endurance and stamina.
Luckily, you don't have to stick to just the soft sand. You can walk, jog, run, and play in the wet sand next to the surf as well! This sand is much easier to walk on for both of you. It also offers the time to run around and play in the surf.
The best time of day to go for walks on the beach in the summer is in the early morning hours when the sun is just coming up and you're free from the crowds of tourists.
