Majestic Oaks is a single developer community on Oak Branch Drive off of Glenwood Drive and South Ridgewood Avenue. Like most newer pre-planned neighborhoods in Florida, there are sidewalks along both sides of the streets and a few lakes thrown in for good measure. The homes and public areas are well-kept. To the south, there is a modest area of woods with plenty of trails.
While not on US-1, you are close enough to it to take you to the nearest grocery stores, pet supply stores, and restaurants. Keep in mind that Edgewater is a small city with limited amenities, but there are plenty to the north in New Smyrna Beach or to the south in Cocoa. There are supermarkets within a fifteen-minute drive of your home, including both Winn-Dixie and Publix supermarkets where you can find plenty of food for everyone in your family, including Fido.
Within Majestic Oaks, the terrain is quite flat and includes one looped road with a central road connecting everything together. Each street has fifteen houses on each side and there are more on the outside of the main ring road. Along with this, there are sidewalks everywhere for the two of you to use for your daily walks.
This is a working family community, which brings with it the usual morning and evening rush hour traffic that can make walking at these times of day, even with sidewalks, a bit trick. All this traffic tends to take up a fair part of the hours out of your typical schedule.
The best time of day to go for a walk with your dog is during the early morning hours before rush hour. Not only will the two of you have less traffic to deal with, but the air is cool and far more comfortable to walk in.
Immediately to the south is a modest area of woods with plenty of trails running throughout them for you and your dog to explore together. During the warmest months of the year, both of you are sure to enjoy the shade. The woods stretch south to 27th Street and should give you plenty of room to stretch your legs.
If you prefer more space, it's going to take you about 30-35 minutes to reach the Tiger Bay State Forest. This forest is part of the 30,000 acres of the Tomoka Wildlife Management Area. Over half of the area was badly burned or destroyed during the 1998 summer wildfire, but since then, it has been restored thanks to the help of the Forest Service and a host of volunteers. Today, it makes a fantastic place to take your dog for long walks out in the woods.
