Downtown DeLand

DeLand, Florida

DeLand is a growing community centered around Stetson University and the revitalized main street/downtown district. The small town feel and being the skydiving capital of the world, it is no wonder our community was the first community to receive the MainStreet designation and was the sole recipient of the "Great American MainStreet Award." DeLand has been voted as the best MainStreet in Florida from 1999-2003. All these things and more make DeLand, and Stetson University a great choice.
