Located over on the beachside of Daytona Beach, Triangle Park runs between S Peninsula Drive and A1A. This is a well-established neighborhood that is exceptionally well-kept with suburban-sized yards.
Living here puts you within walking distance of the beach and the Halifax River, but if you want to eat out, the best restaurants are a bit of a drive north on A1A. However, you won't be disappointed as they serve everything from seafood to a world of international cuisine. Dog parks, on the other hand, are more than just a little drive down the road, but you do have plenty of beach to play on.
The beach is the perfect place to spend the many days of 90-degree weather Daytona Beach enjoys all summer long. It is also the ideal spot to go for walks in the winter months when the temperatures are only in the 50s and the winds are bringing in plenty of fresh air.
Living over on the beachside means dealing with flat ground and lots of sidewalks for the two of you to take your daily walks on. Before you say this sounds pretty boring, consider this: you have so many blocks to walk around you can create a different route for each day of the week! The trick is to make as many changes to your walking routes as you can. Even slight changes in your walks will be enough to keep your pup interested and happy.
But you certainly don't have to stick to walking on the sidewalks when you have the beach to go walking on. Nothing beats a good walk along the ocean's edge with a gentle breeze blowing on a sunny day. The best way to make the most of where you live is to vary up your walks between the beach and the sidewalks for the best exercise and most fun.
The only real open greenway nearby is the beach. But it does offer you a choice between hard to walk in soft sand that will give both of you a good workout and wet sand that is easy to walk on and a great way to cool down. One thing to keep in mind during the summer months is that the dry sand can be hot enough to burn paws. At this time of year, be sure to take your walks early in the morning before things start heating up.
If you want trees and shade to walk in, to the west is the over 30,000 acres that make up the combined Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area and Tiger Bay State Forest. The WMA and State Forest offers miles of trails for the two of you to go hiking on while looking for the many forms of wildlife that live here.
