Vantage Pointe Condos have the advantage of being just across A1A from the beach. You have all of the pleasure of being this close to the beach without being right on top of it during the peak tourist season.
While living in a condo may not seem like the best place to have a dog, being this close to the beach and having access to it makes having a dog much easier. Living on beachside also means having access to some of the best restaurants in town. A1A is filled with great eateries all up and down the coast serving both meals and yummy snacks. When it comes to pet supply stores and places to take your dog, you may find the other side of the Halifax River has more to offer.
Come for the sun and stay for the fun with summer temperatures in the 90s and winters in the 50s. It just doesn't get much better than this!
As you might expect here in the heart of beachside Daytona, the terrain is mostly artificial with the exception of the beach and neighboring yards.
If your dog is not used to walking on paved surfaces, you will need to give your dog's paws time to get used to the rough surface. The best way to do this is to start with short walks a couple of times each day and then slowly start adding to the distance.
The same applies to walking on the beach. The sand on the beach can do as much damage to your dog's paws as the pavement, so be sure you give them time to toughen up. However, the one thing you cannot do is make those paws tough enough to withstand the high temperatures of the pavement once summer arrives. During this time of year, it's best to take your walks in the early morning hours when everything is still cool.
Living on the beachside offers you the opportunity to enjoy a different kind of green space or, in this case, sand-colored space in the form of the World's Most Famous Beach.
Here, you can enjoy miles of sand dunes and wet sand. The soft sand dunes are sure to give both of you quite a workout as it keeps trying to suck your feet in rather than letting you walk easily.
If you would prefer something a little greener, it's only a short drive up the coast to Tomoka State Park. The park covers over 2,000 acres and spans the Tomoka River. The park is situated on the site of an ancient Timucuan Indian village that existed here over 1,000 years ago. Today, it is home to nature trails and dozens of species of birds and other animals. It's a great place to take the whole family out for a picnic and a hike through the trees!
