Guide to DeLand

DeLand is called the “Athens of Florida” and was originally founded in 1876. Conveniently located in Central Florida between Orlando and Daytona Beach, it is the county seat of Volusia County. And you will also discover that DeLand is home to Florida’s oldest college, Stetson University. Stetson University, a hallmark prize of DeLand, brings with it annually, theater, musical events, year-round sports, internationally acclaimed discourses, and an air of vivacity that keeps DeLand spirited, dynamic and rich with opportunities. Currently, DeLand has an estimated population of over 30,000 residents.

Majestic oak trees line the streets everywhere; the result of a planting project during the city’s foundational frontier years. DeLand is encircled by lakes, the St. John’s River, and gorgeous, lush state and local parks. Over the years, DeLand has grown to become one of the most impressive destinations in the heart of Central Florida. Not only are there many special events, but there is a robust hospitality lifestyle that brings people globally to either live, work or have fun! The museums, art programs, recreational facilities and nationally celebrated sporting organizations cement DeLand as one of the best places to live-year after year.

DeLand is also home to the world-renowned Skydive DeLand, as well as the artist-and collector-coveted DeLand Fall Festival of the Arts. Additionally, DeLand houses some of Central Florida’s largest events, including the annual Volusia County Fair, hosting upwards of 250,000 every November! As one of the fastest growing cities in its county, DeLand continues to carve its niche in the market as a destination that can simultaneously embrace its rich history and satisfy a sense of community everyone can appreciate.
