RELAX in West Volusia

Conveniently located between Orlando and Daytona Beach, the West Volusia County Region encompasses 14 distinct communities along the St. Johns River, I-4 and U.S. 17/17-92. A variety of unique accommodations and an eclectic mix of attractions, restaurants, shops and boutiques make this a popular spot for visitors from all over the world. The area is known for its diversity of vacation experiences, including houseboating, manatee viewing and bird watching, skydiving, golfing, fishing, touring authentic Florida heritage sites and art museums, a number of family friendly activities, and enjoying endless outdoor recreation on the St. Johns River.    The Daytona and New Smyrna area beaches and Orlando theme parks are just minutes away.   Whether you are looking for an affordable family vacation or you want to experience nature at it's finest ; there is something for everyone.  
There's no need to go far because West Volusia is well within reach, but a world apart!   

The summer months in West Volusia are known to be hot and humid.  Lucky for us that we have two of the most beautiful, sparkling, and clear springs in Florida right in our own backyard.  At both Blue Spring State Park and DeLeon Springs State Park, you can cool off in refreshing spring waters with a constant temp of 72 degrees.  Go swimming, snorkeling or inner-tubing down a natural lazy river.   Both parks are great for water activities, but they also have trails, eco/historical river cruises and plenty of nature and wildlife to see.  DeLeon Springs State Park also has paddle boats that you can rent as well as the Old Spanish Sugarmill Restaurant, where you can make your own pancakes on a table top griddle. 

Swimming and Tubing are some of the most popular summertime activities
at Blue Spring State Park in Orange City and DeLeon Springs State Park in DeLeon Springs.

Make Your Own Pancakes at the Old Spanish Sugar Mill Restaurant in DeLeon Springs State Park.

If you're staying in Daytona Beach or another surrounding community, come for the day or better yet plan for a weekend getaway in West Volusia and experience the manatees and the beauty of nature firsthand.
