Deltona is a city located in Volusia County, Florida. Home to over 85,000 residents, Deltona sits as the largest city in the county. Deltona is a bedroom city of Orlando, located roughly 20 miles northeast of the larger city, and has been since its founding in the early 1960’s. Because of the way Deltona has grown, today it is primarily residential and a popular snowbird destination – customers living in northern states around New England or the Great Lakes will often own winter homes in Florida or other southern states, and will ship vehicles down south to enjoy the nice winter weather in Florida and then back up north in the spring and summer to avoid the heat.
Deltona was originally founded in early 1963 and was a planned retirement community, conceived of and developed by the General Development Corporation and, more specifically, the Mackle Brothers, land developers who oversaw development of not only Deltona, but other cities such as Marco Island. The city grew rapidly after its founding, and today is a major bedroom city of Orlando. Because of the way it grew, much of it is residential, and many permanent residents of Deltona often work in Orlando, commuting back and forth via Interstate 4. Deltona was incorporated in December 1995, after two previous attempts at incorporation – once in 1987 and once again in 1990 – failed to pass.
During the summer month, average daily highs in Deltona usually reach into the low-to-mid 90’s during the day, with overnight lows generally dropping down into the low-to-mid 70’s. During the winter months, average highs usually only reach into the low-to-mid 70’s, with overnight lows usually falling into the low-to-mid 50’s. As mentioned, Deltona is a popular snowbird destination because of its mild winter weather, and can also be a good substitute for shipments into Orlando along some routes, as it sits a bit north of Orlando.
