Nature & Outdoors
DeLand and Volusia County sit atop the Floridan Aquifer, a vast and fragile reservoir of fresh water that underlies the entire state. Within twenty-five minutes you will go from extensive marshlands to a broad expanse of undeveloped, Atlantic Ocean beach. This makes for exciting discoveries in natural habitats—bears, reptiles, fish and birds. The area’s robust system of hiking and bike trails connects many of these areas and opens up natural wonders for you to discover including one of America’s best lakes for rowing, Lake Beresford.
Dining & Shopping
The dining scene is bursting with life and innovation. From Zagat-rated fine dining, smaller intimate spots, mom and pop restaurants, coffee shops, wine bars, walk up food stands, fish camps, homemade chocolates to microbrews and sports bars, DeLand has it all—something for every palate and at any price range.
