    Congratulations! Moved here last year and I’m so happy I choose DeLand. The history is amazing and I love the historical sites and buildings. Restoration is a big thing in keeping a city alive. The Downtown area is so quaint and everyone appears to have a “togetherness “ aura about them. I love getting lost and finding my way. I’ve come across some beautiful nature sites. Laugh at myself when I go miles out the way when I could have gone minutes. I love it here and the best part is being close to my granddaughter and watching her grow and having “nana “ dats together. ❤️
