If you want to be where all the action is, then Sunset Pines Townhomes are the perfect place to be. You are within walking distance of the many shops in the Volusia Mall and, for the race fans, within walking distance of the Birthplace of Speed, better known as Daytona Beach International Speedway. But this is only part of what makes living here so enjoyable.
Whether you like fast-food or prefer something a little more along the lines of fine dining, you can find it all within a short drive of your townhome. If you are in the market for a dog park or pet supply store, it's going to be a bit of a drive.
Keep in mind that the summer temperatures are in the 90 to 100-degree range with humidity to match. Since dogs don't sweat, try to make sure you take yours out in the early morning hours before the things heat up.
The townhomes in Sunset Pines sit in a carefully manicured and landscaped environment, but beyond that, the area is mostly paved and built-up. There are sidewalks for you and your dog to go walking on around the neighborhood with more than enough mileage for the two of you to get plenty of exercise. To go with this, there are several small areas of woods in the areas, some of which have trails for you to explore.
Be aware that this is a busy part of town and you need to pay close attention to the traffic wherever the two of you go. Walking on paved surfaces tends to be hard on a dog's paws. If your dog is just getting started walking on paved surfaces, you should to start out slowly to let them toughen up enough to handle longer walks in the future. Your pup is certain to appreciate you looking out for their safety.
There are few areas of woods nearby, but nothing in the way of true parks or green space. Thankfully, the Halifax Humane Society and a group of volunteers have built an excellent fenced-in dog park with large sections for small and large dogs to play separately and safely. The park offers agility courses, water fountains, and plenty of shady places for you to relax under while your dog hangs out with their four-legged buddies.
For something a little larger, it's only a short distance to the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area and State Forest. Back in 1998, almost half of the 30,000 acres were destroyed in wildfires. Since then, with lots of help from Mother Nature and a team of volunteers, the area has been fully restored and the miles of trails inside offer you an amazing place to spend your days of hiking in some of the most beautiful forest in the area.
