Dresser New Smyrna is a rural neighborhood located on South Myrtle just off 10th Street. Living here puts you right next door to New Smyrna Beach Middle School and on the shore of a small lake. The area is heavily wooded with large yards, helping to further add to the rural image. At the same time, you are on the other side of a small copse of trees blocking your view of the railyards and some of the sound.
Whether you need groceries, are looking for a place to buy pet supplies, a groomer, or great places to eat, you can find just about anything you could ever need with just a short commute. That includes the beach, although it could take a little longer depending on the time of day and the traffic. The earlier in the day you head east, the less traffic you are likely to have to deal with.
"Country Quiet" is a good way to describe living out here. You and your dog won't have to worry much about traffic during most of the day. You might see a little during rush hours and, of course, there is the twice daily school bus. But for the most part, the two of you should be able to hike along South Myrtle uninterrupted.
The land around here is predictably flat with nothing to make your walks exciting or challenging. You may, however, find a few trails running through the woods behind you no matter which side of the street you live on that offer at least a cool shady place for the two of you to walk. Alternatively, if you don't mind the drive to get there, the beach is only ten minutes to the east and offers a range of terrain for you and your four-legged friend to use.
Living in Dresser New Smyrna means being virtually surrounded by green spaces while still being close to the heart of the town. You and your dog should be able to find trails running through the woods to help you take walks in the shade or you can take your pooch over to the lake so that they can cool off in the water.
The beach is only a few minutes to the east and offers miles of soft and wet sand for the two of you to hike along. The dry sand makes walking hard and will work both your leg muscles and your dog's with every step you take. The wet sand will feel like a breeze after that! Of course, as long as the weather is warm, both of you can also take a refreshing dip in the waves before heading home. Just don't forget to rinse the saltwater off of your dog!
