The Reserve at Spruce Creek is a modest sized community of single-family homes on the west side of I-95 and to the southwest of the Spruce Creek Airport. One of your next-door neighbors is the Cypress Head Golf Club to the east. To the north are the exclusive communities surrounding the airport. At one time, John Travolta owned a home here and parked his 1964 Boeing 707 behind his house! Spruce Creek Fly-In sports a 1.4-mile long runway that is perfect for aircraft of this size and smaller.
Your home here puts you close to the South Tomoka Wildlife Management Area and less than twenty minutes from the beach. It also puts you a short drive from essential amenities such as grocery stores, gas stations, bars, and places to buy food for the furry member of your family as well along with plenty of treats and toys.
Living this far out from town means being able to live in relative peace and quiet. In fact, three sides of the community are wide open fields and woodland. Like many residential communities in this part of Florida, there aren't any sidewalks for the two of you to walk on, so you're stuck with walking on the streets.
Like most residential communities, the Reserve at Spruce Creek tends to see a fair amount of traffic during the usual rush hours and when the school buses are running. However, as long as you plan your walks together for other times during the day, the traffic should not be a problem. If you find yourself with little choice but to take your dog out during these times, be sure you keep them on a tight leash to help keep your dog under control just in case they happen to get spooked!
There are fields around the community for you and your dog to play on if you want to stay close to home. However, if you don't mind going for a short drive together, you have options. To the west on Pioneer Trail is the South Tomoka Wildlife Management Area, part of the 30,000 acres of Tiger Bay State Forest. Here, you and your dog can hike the miles of trails for hours and never have to see the same scenery on any walk.
A short distance to the east is the 1,637 acres that make up the Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve that offers you miles of trails running through dense woods. If you feel ambitious, you can hike the 6-mile round trip down to New Smyrna Beach and back.
Speaking of the beach, it's only a fifteen-minute drive to the east and offers miles of sand and surf to enjoy.
