Hamilton Street is a short thoroughfare of single-family houses running from Martin Street to the north to Enterprise Avenue on the southern end. Living here puts you next door to the New Smyrna Beach Municipal Golf Course. But unlike living next to some of the other golf courses further out, you're also close to things like excellent restaurants, places to buy food and supplies for your dog, and parks to go for walks in or play in.
Also, unlike many other communities surrounding a golf course, these homes tend to have much larger yards and are a spaced out enough to give you the privacy you deserve. One thing you won't find here, unfortunately, is sidewalks for you and your dog to go walking on. Shade is an issue along the streets which can make for some very hot walks during the summer months unless you take them early in the morning.
The one thing you won't find around here is hilly terrain. Unfortunately, the entire area is flat and relatively dull. Within a short walk of your home, there are a few small parks worth taking a look at. As a residential area, the streets are relatively quiet during the day with the exception of rush hours.
There is not much for either of you to look at while you take your walks around the neighborhood, but as long as you switch blocks from time to time, things don't have to be boring.
With no sidewalks for you to walk on, you will be stuck using the roads. This does mean taking extra precautions such as not taking your dog out for walks during rush hour. Not only is this unsafe for you and your dog, but it also poses a serious risk to motorists. Plus, the added traffic can make your dog nervous and behave out of character.
The largest green space by far is the golf course to the north, but it's only useful if you play golf. Dogs are not allowed on the course for both safety and hygiene reasons. But there are several small parks in the area to explore that are within walking distance.
For larger green space, a short drive west will take you to North and South Otter Parks. Between the two parks, there are acres of woods filled with walking trails that will keep you and your dog happily exploring for hours at a time.
No matter which of the many parks you choose to visit with your dog, be sure you use plenty of mosquito repellent as they are vicious here. Make sure you bring water and a dish for your dog if you are taking a long hike and water for yourself as well. The forests and woods might feel cooler, but you can still become quickly dehydrated.
