Riverfront Estates sits between US-1 and the Indian River North. It is home to Boston Whaler Inc., a manufacturer of large pleasure boats and a small community of older homes on Jones Fish Camp Road in the southern half of the area. There are several spots close to the river where everything is laid in for homes to be built, but have yet to be constructed.
On the east side of US-1 is the Florida Roadhouse, a combination restaurant and bar that offers comfort foods along with both food and drink happy hours. Beyond this, if you need supplies, the nearest grocery store is six minutes to the north in Edgewater Commons. This shopping plaza is anchored by a Publix supermarket and a Walgreens. The Publix carries a large selection of premium brand dog foods and treats that should keep your pup happy. For anything more, you must go further into town.
The terrain in Riverfront Estates is mostly heavy woods, but at the northern edge of the community is the Boston Whaler boat manufacturer. The terrain around it is mostly paved, but at the same time, the company has ensured that there are plenty of open areas of grass. Jones Fish Camp Riad is a narrow-paved road that leads past the few older homes to the edge of the river. Most of this area, while still covered in dense woods, is expected to be part of a much larger housing development in the future.
Living along Jones Fish Camp Road puts you far enough away from the highway that you aren't likely to hear much of the traffic noise. This road may not have sidewalks, but there is plenty of grass running along both sides that you can use instead. The grass will be easier on your pooch's paws and never gets as hot as the pavement.
With the exception of the Boston Whaler facility and the houses, the entire area is one vast green space covered in dense woods. There are several trails running through them for you and your dog to explore in the cool shade of the trees. You can hike all the way to the river on Jones Fish Camp Road or follow it along the riverbank to its end and back. It will make a relaxing walk for both of you.
If you are willing to cross US-1 with your dog, there are more dense woods on the west side of it to explore. Much of this area has been marked for development with areas where the trees have been stripped in long lines as if to build streets for future development. Depending on how ambitious the two of you are, you can hike for miles, deep into the woods. The only thing you have to look out for is the wide variety of wildlife in the area.
