This is the first in a series of posts that will feature communities within 3 hours driving distance of Orlando, Florida.
DeLand, at the far edge of commuting distance from the Orlando area, is conveniently located halfway between metro Orlando and the charming beach town of New Smyrna. It is home to a well-know private university too – Stetson University.
As if that wasn’t enough, this college town with beautiful, historic downtown area was the first town in Florida’s to receive an offical “Main Street” designation and blocks of the town as well as some Stetson buildings are included in the National Register of Historic Places.
I was only passing through when I took these few photos, but I’m sure I’ll return.
