The Ocean Walk Resort Condo sits right on the World's Most Famous Beach and offers a luxurious place to stay during your Daytona Beach vacation.
Daytona has a lot to offer while you are here. Start with the "Birthplace of Speed," Daytona Beach International Speedway and add in several world-class golf courses, the boardwalks, and a selection of amazing restaurants. If clubbing is more your scene, the beach is lined with great nightclubs. But if you want dog parks and pet supply stores, you should be prepared to drive to find them as they are over on the mainland side.
The best time to visit Daytona is almost any time of the year as even the winters here are mild with daytime highs in the low fifties. But if you crave hot weather, then the endless blue skies and temperatures in the 90s during the summer months should be perfect for you.
Even though you might be on vacation, your pooch still needs to go out for walks. Depending on where you come from, you might find the flat ground here a bit on the boring side. But that only applies if you are used to hills where you live the rest of the year.
What you may not realize is that you don't have to use the sidewalks to take your walks. In fact, unless your pup walks on paved surfaces regularly, making them do so here can cause damage to the pads under their paws. A much better choice would be to take them out on the beach!
You can use the soft sand if they need a good workout or hang out by the surf if all they need is a good daily walk. Or go all out and take the soft sand on the way out and the wet sand on the way back in.
Besides the beach, the nearest green space of any real size is back over on the mainland and then north on N Beach St. This will take you to Tomoka State Park straddling the headwaters of the Tomoka River. The Timucuan Indians once called the lands here their home and built the village of Nocoroco where they had ready access to a seemingly endless supply of fish in the Tomoka River and the many lakes and ponds in the nearby area. Take Fido for a walk along the nature trail that runs through a hardwood hammock.
A little further up the road is Bulow Creek State Park where you can still see the ruins of the Bulow Plantation destroyed during the Second Seminole War of 1836. The park features a selection of trails for both you and your energetic pooch to go hiking along including the 7-mile long Bulow Woods Trail.
