The city of DeLand has been coined "The Athens of Florida" because it’s a community centered in arts, education and culture: There is always something to do, see and learn in this town. The heart of DeLand is its beloved downtown area, which is directly situated next to Stetson University. Stroll through the unique shops and dine at world-class eateries before taking a walk through Stetson’s beautiful campus. Sit in on a performance by the university’s award-winning symphony orchestra, snack on some peanuts at a Stetson ball game, or even take in a lecture that is of interest to you in a historic lecture hall.
If you yearn to learn or have a passion for art appreciation, a day in DeLand will be a delight. Some of the many museums in town include, The Museum of Florida Art, The Naval Air Station Museum, The Gillespie Museum of Minerals, The Florida Museum for Women Artists, and The African American Museum of the Arts–just to name a few. Choosing a residential care facility in DeLand affords you the opportunity to learn and explore to your heart’s content. If you prefer to learn outdoors, there are amazing state parks to take advantage of, like Blue Springs State Park, Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge and Hontoon Island State Park. DeLandites are especially fond of these parks during bird watching months and manatee seasons.
No matter what the season may be, DeLand offers its residents excitement on the downtown strip. Some highlights include, chili cook-offs, dog parades, fall art festivals, craft shows, classic car shows, Christmas and homecoming parades, as well as once-a-month art walks, and even a yearly beer festival! Residents of Monastery Oaks can enjoy the culture, beauty and excitement this town offers year-round, and that is what makes assisted living in DeLand so desirable.
