Traveling the back roads of Florida in search for scenic views and old Florida towns is a popular activity for weekend trekkers. One of those nostalgic Florida towns that is not too far off the beaten path is Lake Helen. The community is literally right off I-4 near DeLand. This quiet town has managed to preserve and maintain one of the most delightful and eclectic historical districts in Florida.
Many DeLand residents are passionate about Stetson athletics, notably baseball. In recent years, the Stetson baseball team has received national fame, thanks to a few alumni who have have made it to the big leagues. In 2014, New York Mets pitcher and former Stetson player, Jacob deGrom was called up to the big leagues and received the National League Rookie of the Year award. Also in 2014, Cleveland Indians pitcher and former Stetson standout Corey Kluber received the American League Cy Young Award.
It is no secret that the buzz around DeLand has been the commercial development along S. Woodland Blvd near the Publix shopping center at Country Club Corners. With the new Starbucks, soon-to-be Chick-fil-A, and other establishments to come, the area is becoming a popular hub with a lot to offer. Now, a new residential subdivision is within a short walk of these new retail outlets and restaurants.
Floridians, like most, have family traditions when it comes to celebrating our nation's birthday. Memories of kids jumping in the swimming pool and the smell of hamburgers on the grill often flood our minds of Independence Days of the past. If you have never made one of the professional fireworks displays in the area part of your family’s celebration, this is the year to check it out. Volusia County has a multitude of different options when it comes to fireworks displays.
The goal of a real estate agent is to facilitate the buying or selling of property, while protecting the interests and confidential information of the customer. Many times this goal gets clouded and detracted, due to larger real estate agencies that do not have a grasp on the local community and have to look out for other interests such as stockholders, board members, and other stakeholders.
