Whether you are into surfing or surf fishing, having a unit in the Colony Beach Club Condo is the perfect place to be. The surf here is excellent on most days of the summer, but on any given day, you are just as likely to see anglers as you are surfers. The Colony Beach Club Condo offers plenty of well-manicured lawns for you to take your dog out along with direct access to the beach.
Living here takes you just far enough from the bustling downtown area to be away from the bulk of the noise and congestion to enjoy a little peace and quiet. At the same time, you are only a ten-minute drive from the shops, restaurants, and main action. There are a couple of places to eat within walking distance for a quick bite instead of heating up the kitchen on a sultry summer evening or first thing in the morning.
This is a very busy area, even being this far from the center of the city. There are condos as far as the eye can see in any direction. This means a lot of vehicle traffic on the main road along with plenty of pedestrian traffic. These conditions can make taking your dog out for daily walks a bit challenging if your pup isn't used to being in congested areas.
The best way around this particular issue is to get up early in the morning and take your dog out walking on the beach. The earlier you can get out, the fewer people there are likely to be on the beach or the sidewalks. This will allow you to enjoy your walks together rather than trying to fight your way through the crowds. The other advantage of walking in the early morning is the cooler temperatures which are much more pleasant to walk in.
When it comes to green spaces around the condo, there are several to choose from. The beach runs for miles to the south, offering plenty of wide-open sand to walk on and the ocean to cool off in.
Across the other side of the peninsula is the Mosquito Lagoon Aquatic Preserve which is part of the Indian River Lagoon Network. This is a great place to go kayaking, canoeing, and rowing with your dog. Be sure you use your GPS to track your movements as it is very easy to get lost in here.
If you prefer to take your dog for walks in the woods, you are only a fifteen to twenty-minute drive to the Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve. Here, you and your dog will find miles of trails to hike in the shade along with plenty of wildlife to keep an eye out for along the way.
