DISCOVER YOUR HAPPINESS IN WEST VOLUSIA - UNCOVER THE TRUE NATURE AND HISTORY OF OLD FLORIDA
 
(2014 - Fall/Winter Issue)

Writer: .



Experience nature at its finest by treating your family to an unforgettable Florida vacation in West Volusia, nestled between Orlando and Daytona Beach. 

Visit the official winter home to more than 250 manatees at Blue Spring State Park. Hike trails through lush landscape to spy indigenous wildlife and a variety of birds. Tour the magnificent St. Johns River, learn about its rich history and view native vegetation and wildlife on scenic two-hour narrated river cruises. Set off on your own to explore the river aboard a rental canoe or kayak.

Cook pancakes at your own table at the Old Spanish Sugar Mill Restaurant in DeLeon Springs State Park, originally home to Native Americans more than 6,000 years ago. After filling up on cakes, take a ride on the Fountain of Youth Eco History Tour Boat.

Feel the New England-Southern vibe, intermingled with a unique cultural ambience in historic Downtown DeLand. Shop the boutiques, antique stores, galleries and gift shops.

Don’t miss the Museum of Art–DeLand, featuring the Blatt Collection, which represents works by Pablo Picasso, Raoul Dufy and others, as well as an exhibit showcasing Paintings of Mellencamp through December 28.

Finally, step back in time at the Stetson Mansion, Florida’s first luxury home, built as a winter retreat in 1886 by famed hat maker John B. Stetson. Meticulously restored, it was recently voted TripAdvisor’s “Most Popular Tourist Attraction in Florida.”
