For you history lovers, the Stetson Mansion, one of the city's best preserved Victorian mansions, gives a glimpse of life for society's upper crust in a bygone era. For those into military history, the DeLand Naval Air Station Museum lets you step back to the 40's with exhibits containing equipment, uniforms, and photographs. In addition, the museum includes an Avenger torpedo bomber and an F14.
DeLand's local attractions make it easy to find something to do regardless of your age or interests. The Volusia County Farmer's Market is the largest in the area and is open every Wednesday. If getting a little exercise is more to your liking, DeLand has an extensive network of parks that offer a variety of free and convenient activity options.
DeLand lies just off Interstate 4 between Daytona Beach and Sanford and is close enough to the coast to make day trips to the beach an easy option. For those wishing to venture a bit further, Orlando offers a wide variety of activities and entertainment that will keep travelers busy for days.
