Sunny Pines Circle is a single cul-de-sac of larger homes branching off of S Peninsular Dr. and ending just short of the Halifax River. Living here puts you within a five-minute drive of a Winn-Dixie grocery store, a Metz Lounge, and a Dollar General. It also puts you within driving distance of several of the best restaurants and nightclubs in town like the Ocean Deck Restaurant and Beach Club and Anna's Trattoria Italian. You also live within a two-block walk of Daytona Beach which covers a total of 23 miles. The one thing you won't find here is a dog park, but you do have the coast which is a great substitute.
If you like hot summers, you will love Daytona where summers mean temperatures in the 90s for weeks and endless blue skies. Winters here are short and mild with daytime highs typically in the 50s, making perfect weather for taking your dog out for long walks.
The terrain in Sunny Pines Circle is flat and very suburban. While some of the roads here have sidewalks, many do not. Be sure you are wearing something light-colored to help motorists see you, especially if you go for your walks early in the morning or later in the evening.
If you decide to stick to paved surfaces for your walks, be aware of the risks to. It will take a little time and plenty of short walks to toughen your dog's paw pads up to the point at which they can handle going for longer walks on paved surfaces due to its rougher nature, especially if you're walking along roadways.
Also keep in mind that during the summer months, the pavement can easily become too hot for your pooch to walk on. You can take your walks during these months early in the morning when everything is still cooled off.
When it comes to finding green spaces for you and your pup to enjoy, the only real option is the beach. With 23 miles of sand and surf to walk on and play in, you and Fido have plenty of room to walk, jog, run, and play.
The beach offers you the soft sands on the inland side of the coast and the wet sands next to the surf. The dry sand is hard to walk in and will give your leg muscles a good workout. You can take the soft sand on the outbound leg of your walk and then use the wet sand for your walk back. The wet sand is much easier for the two of you to walk on and you have the added advantage of being able to walk and play in the water, offering a great way to cool off at the end of your walk.
