Spruce Creek is one of the more unusual neighborhoods you are likely to encounter. This neighborhood is part of the Spruce Creek Fly-In community. In the center of it all is the Spruce Creek Airport with a pair of runways, one of which is 1.4 miles long. Many of the homes here have garages large enough for personal aircraft. At one time, John Travolta parked his personal Boeing 707 behind his house in this neighborhood! The area is also home to the Spruce Creek Golf Course and Country Club.
While this is a private community located on the west side of I-95, a ten-minute drive will take you to most, if not all, of the essential amenities you are likely to need. This includes grocery stores, clothing stores, hardware stores, places to buy pet supplies, and a selection of great restaurants to take your family when you don't feel like doing the dishes.
Spruce Creek sits alongside one of the many lakes surrounding the entire community. Most of the homes sit on large lots and have garages large enough for light aircraft parking. Many of the roads running through the community double as taxiways that lead to the runways. Not only do you have to deal with traffic that can be heavy during the morning and evening rush hours, but you have the distinct possibility of the occasional encounter with aircraft!
Keep in mind that there are no sidewalks out here for the two of you to walk on. However, providing you avoid the rush hour traffic, this shouldn't be too much of a problem as long as you keep your eyes open. The roads are wide enough for an airplane to taxi on with room for a car to pass by, so there is plenty of room for you and your dog as well!
Within the boundaries of Spruce Creek, there are only a few green spaces for you and your pup to go walking on. Most are simply the few open lots in the area. There is, of course, the golf course, but you and your dog are not particularly welcome here as per the course regulations.
Outside of the community, there are large areas of woods with plenty of trails running all through them to enjoy with your pup at your side. They make a nice shady place for you and your dog to go for walks in the summer heat as the trees will help keep the sun at bay. If you don't mind a bit of a drive, the Tiger Bay State Forest is only a few minutes' drive from your home and offers miles of trails running through the trees for hiking, horseback riding, cycling, and dog walking.
