Overview

Introduction to Deltona, Florida

The Florida city of Deltona is located in southwestern Volusia County, midway between Daytona Beach (30 miles to the northeast) and Orlando (30 miles to the southwest). Access to both cities is afforded via Interstate I-4, which passes through Deltona. Nearby communities include Enterprise, DeBary, Orange City, DeLand, Lake Helen, and Sanford.

The area of southwestern Volusia County now comprising Deltona was originally inhabited by Timucuan Indians. The surrounding area became the site of a small town known as Enterprise, near which Baron Fredrick DeBary bought several hundred acres and built a winter home in 1871 where he regularly entertained several prominent guests. The character of the area didn't change significantly until 1962, when the Mackle Brothers bought a large tract of land consisting of over 17,000 acres slated for development of a community and named the area Deltona. Over the ensuing decades, Deltona experienced steady but rapid growth. Two attempts at city incorporation (1987 and 1990) failed, but the third time was the charm and Deltona was finally incorporated as a city in 1995.

Deltona and Volusia County Attractions

The city of Deltona boasts over 100 lakes within its boundaries comprising a total of over 8 square miles of water. Not surprisingly, there are numerous opportunities for water-related outdoor recreational activities that can be enjoyed.

Daytona Beach also serves as the headquarters of NASCAR (National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing) and of the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association).
