Flagami is a pleasing blend of single-family houses, duplexes, and affordable apartments. This is a bustling mix of shopping centers, bars, dinner clubs, and more that are favorite gathering places for people from all over the city. Since Flagami is not close to any of the Miami attractions, it has managed to maintain a local identity. While it might only be a 20-minute drive to downtown Miami, the neighborhood offers a tranquil environment for you and Fluffy to go walking for fun and exercise. Pet supply stores and dog-friendly parks are all within comfortable driving distance.
If you are new to the neighborhood, you might be surprised to learn that there are virtually zero days you and Fluffy can't go walking. Daily temperatures range from the low 90s in July and August to the low 60s in January. The only thing you have to be concerned with is the occasional rainy day and plenty of thunderstorms.
This is suburbia at its best where you can find block after flat block of single-family homes, duplexes, and apartments. In the very northern part of the community on the shores of Blue Lagoon are a number of condos and hotels. No matter which area of the town you live in, there are plenty of different directions you and Fluffy can take to keep your walks fresh and exciting.
There are two cemeteries in the middle of the northern section of town with footpaths through them, but you may not want to walk your dog here. Walking your dog continuously on paved surfaces creates two potential risks of injury to Fluffy's paws. The first is the constant wear and tear. The second is the temperature paved surfaces can reach when its hot outside. In either case, you'll want to go walking in the early morning when all paved surfaces are still lovely and cool.
Flagami has an odd mix of greenways starting with the two cemeteries in the middle of the community. There are several small parks within the boundaries of Flagami for you and Fluffy to check out. Just remember that you and Fluffy are welcome to enjoy these parks, but you must keep them on a leash and make good use of waste bags when the time comes.
Since small parks aren't much of a challenge, a trip down to the R. Hardy Matheson County Preserve might be in order. The preserve covers over 800 acres of mangroves and Snapper Creek, a well-known area where archeologists are still finding remains from the Tequesta Indians who once called this area home. It is a fantastic place to go hiking with Fluffy by your side. There is nothing like getting back to nature to refresh your mind and body. Not to mention that Fluffy is going to love all the new smells!
