Rowe Terrace is an upscale single-family community right off of E International Speedway Boulevard on the beachside. The neighborhood sits along the Halifax River, but is only a couple of blocks from the beach to the east.
There are many amazing advantages to living on the beachside beyond the beach itself. You are close to several of the best restaurants and nightclubs in town that are perfect for those of you who love to get out and about for the night. Luckily, living closer to the river than the beach does help keep the tourist traffic to a minimum. At the same time, you are right next to one of the main bridges for when you need to head into town for work or to the nearest pet supply store.
You are going to be happy living here when the summer sun hits the 90s and you can take Fido out to the beach in the morning!
The terrain here isn't anything to get excited about as it's mostly flat and sandy. The streets are
laid out in grid-fashion, giving you and Fido plenty of choices when it comes to
going for a walk.
Despite being so close to the beach, that's definitely not your only option. The sidewalks offer a nice easy terrain that is perfect for a pudgy pooch who needs to shed a few pounds or an older one who has a little arthritis. You can take your time walking around and only go as far as your pup can handle.
Alternatively, the beach offers two types of terrain. There is the soft dry sand that can be hard to walk in but is a good workout and then there is the wet sand that is easy to walk on. Like the sidewalks, the wet sand is a good place to take a dog who has a few mobility issues.
As you can probably imagine, the nearest green space of any kind nearby is the beach. It runs for miles in either direction! The best time of day to go walking is early in the morning before it has a chance to fill up with tourists. Be sure you make use of both the soft sand to build up muscles and the hard packed sand to build stamina.
On the other hand, if it's flora you crave, then you and Fido need to hop in the car and drive north until you run into Tomoka and Bulow Creek State Parks. Between the two parks, there are almost 8,000 acres with miles of trails for the two of you to hike along. The parks sit along the Tomoka River and offer dense shade, places to have a picnic, and places for you and Fido to play together. Remember to bring your mosquito repellant!
