There is nothing quite like the condo life in Daytona Beach and living at the Royal Palm Condos puts you in an excellent position to enjoy all the city has to offer. The condos are close to LPGA Blvd which takes you west to the LPGA Golf Course and then to the Tiger Bay State Forest. Going east, the road will take you back into town and to the beachside.
There are several restaurants nearby but you must drive to find pet stores and parks where you and Bowser can go for walks. There are plenty of residential blocks to walk around and very few days when you and your pup can't get out and about.
During the summer months, the temperatures hover in the upper 90s with the occasional rainstorm. In the winter, you can expect a few more rainy days and temperatures that range in the low 50s in January.
The area is typically suburban in that beyond a few businesses, the rest of the community around you is predominantly residential and mostly single-family homes. This gives you and Bowser the opportunity to make the most out of the many blocks to vary your daily strolls.
No one wants to walk the same paths day in and day out. This is especially true of Bowser who does most of their exploring with their nose. You can also use the grass around the condos to give them a break from the rough surface of the pavement from time to time.
Since you are asking your pup to do the majority of their walking on paved surfaces, keep a close eye on the condition of their paws. If they show signs of excessive wear and tear, let them take it easy for a few days and stick to the grass to give them time to heal.
There is a fair amount of lawn around the condo buildings and a small wooded area across the street where you and Bowser can have a bit of "off-road" fun. But if you want somewhere a bit larger to walk around in and explore, hop in the car and head west out to the 30,000 acres that make up the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area and Tiger Bay State Forest.
Back in 1998, over 15,000 acres of the WMA were destroyed and damaged during wildfires. Today, thanks to a lot of hard work, the area has been restored and is now an amazing place to take Bowser for hikes. There are miles and miles of trails to hike along, plenty of wildlife to look for, and lots of places to bring the family for a picnic. Be sure you bring water and a water bowl for your pup. You'll also want to remember the ever-important mosquito repellent!
