Top Rated Downtown: DeLand

Posted · Add Comment

DeLand was the first community to receive the MainStreet designation in Florida

The authenticity travelers are looking for is here, in DeLand.

This “real Florida” downtown has taken the top rating as best downtown outside of Orlando.  It’s a destination that combines a sense of history and a contemporary vibe. It is home to shops and boutiques, galleries and (nine!) museums as well as a slate of annual events. All this plus live theatre, fabulous restaurants, microbreweries and a series of murals – including number one selfie spot #DeLandWings – combine in this delightful downtown setting.
