Deland, FL

A Southern Community with Charming Porches

On the road van
Dave and I visited the enchanting town of DeLand FL located in Volusia County midway between Orlando and Daytona Beach. Deland is often referred to as "the Athens of Florida".

Deland's lively and vibrant downtown area has been the recipient of the "Great American Main Street Award".

Known as one of Florida's "small town treasures", we enjoyed visiting their historic downtown - which is lined with all kinds of fun gift and artsy shops as well as inviting local restaurants.

About Deland

This small Southern town with a population of 27,000 was founded in 1876 by Henry DeLand. Because of its wonderful year-round climate and southern location with nearby beaches, it is a mecca for outdoor activities.

Not only did we find many beautiful porches, but we also got a peek at Manatees, blue herons, turtles, eagles in their nests and many alligators and their young. Did you know that the St. John's River is the longest river in Florida?

Deland is the home of Stetson University. This historical campus is surrounded by tree-lined streets and beautiful homes. Nearby parks offer camping, picnicking, swimming, scuba diving and canoeing.

Deland has three area golf courses including one of the top ten courses in Florida: Victoria Hills. We found it to be a charming town for residents and tourists alike. There is plenty of culture, art and outdoor entertainment in Deland year round!
