"Beach life in the shadow of condo's..."

An older beachside street with a mix of retirees, families, and beach vacation renters. Less expensive than "The Shores" but the same quality of life!

Since the condo craze has hit Daytona, the eastern (ocean) skyline view has been blocked with one completed massive high-rise condo and an even larger one is planned for the near future where the abandoned Treasure Island hotel sits at the end of Park Ave., which sure cuts into the formerlly enjoyable pretty ocean sunrise sky views.

A nice street in general that is close enough to the beach ramp for walking and also close to a bridge (Silver Beach/Orange Ave) in case you ever have to evacuate for a hurricane.

Since they closed the scooter rental store at the end of the street, there is less "drive-thru" traffic on the street, but it's still common to see non-residents speeding down the street cutting from A1A to Penninsula.

Home values have skyrocketed here in recent years almost as fast as the unreal insurance rates (beachside+old houses=ouch!) and property taxes. Still a decent value for beachside property when compared to other cities, and this street may be located in Daytona Beach, but it feels more like a street in Daytona Beach Shores.

Crime is not as bad here as it is a bit more to the north, but there have been home and car break-ins and petty thefts, so keep your doors locked and eyes open. There are a fair amount of homeless and area youth who walk the area who look for opportunity. Not a dangerous or violent area by any stretch of the imagination - just a beachside street with transient traffic that one needs to be aware of. Our family has had a neighbors home burglarized, a garage broken into more than once, and things stolen from the backyard in 15 years there.

There are some nice residents on the street and the area is friendly and open, so get to know your neighbors!
