The homes of Sugarmill sit between Nixon Lane and Herbert Street, close to Dunlawton Sugar Mill Gardens, the home of a 19th Century plantation. The houses here are slightly upscale and laid out along a "U" shaped road. There is a lake in the middle of the community for you and your dog to enjoy and sidewalks to make good use of.
Living here puts you close to South Nova Road, one of the busier north-south roads through town. Along this road, you will find a number of stores and restaurants to check out and, if you follow this road to the south, it will take you to Dunlawton Avenue. Here, you will find the bulk of the shopping to be found in town.
There are a number of green spaces nearby, some within walking distance and others you must drive to. Luckily, you will find the journey to be more than worth the effort as they all have a lot to offer you and your pup.
Within the community, you will find the entire area well-kept and peaceful. With only a small number of houses, you won't be dealing with the massive rush hour traffic issues that some neighborhoods have. This means that the traffic in this area is minimal and should not present a problem when taking your dog out for a walk!
The ground here is flat and has little to offer in the way of a challenge on its own. Luckily, there are plenty of residential blocks for the two of you to enjoy walking around. The neighbors around here are a friendly lot and you are just as likely to spend as much time chatting with them as you will walking your dog, if you aren't careful. The good news is that there is plenty of shade here to keep you and your dog cooled down in the summer sun!
Right next door is the Dunlawton Sugar Mill Gardens, along with the ruins of the 19th Century plantation that once occupied the space. In this area, there are plenty of carefully maintained botanical gardens to enjoy and nature trails to hike along.
To the north and within walking distance is Reed Canal Park. This is an amazing park that sits in the middle of the border between South Daytona and Port Orange. It offers a large area of woods to explore, a lake to hike around, and a vast area of grass where you and your dog can run and play.
Ten minutes to the east will take you to the beach. You can drive your car on the sand and park it. From here, the two of you can hike for as many miles as you can handle. With varied terrain, warm coastal waters, and plenty of sights to see, the beach offers a great opportunity to get out and about!
