I'm from a small town in Upstate New York. Deltona reminds me of exactly that. It's not overly busy but it has just enough to keep you here in the town. With the growth of new buildings and businesses coming in during 2019, Deltona will become a bigger attraction, bringing the potential for more feet to land here! Its conveniently close to nearby towns and cities that help level out what Deltona may be missing (breweries, restaurants, etc). It's a very cute little town!

Its a very quaint suburban community. Having a community college nearby makes going to school for both returning students and high school graduates incredibly affordable. There are plenty of ways to get involved with the community, whether that is volunteering at any church service aimed at helping the needy, or at the local hospital or rescue center for aquatic and marine life, and more. Working as a tutor, I also get a feel for the education system here in the county, and though it may not be the best in my opinion (as far as standardized testing goes), it does help students here be more prepared for post-secondary education. Unfortunately, starting businesses such as restaurants may be rather difficult, as there is usually not enough flowing traffic to generate a meaningful amount of income for small business owners.
Two things that really attracted me to move to Deltona were affordability and the quietness. The housing price was below what I expected to pay compared to the surrounding areas. Along with the affordability also came the quiet and tranquility in most areas. Fortunately, the areas that I've lived have been great neighborhoods, with good neighbors. A few things I would change, would be the school system. It seems like Deltona lacks schools for the amount of children. Perhaps building more schools to have a better ration in the classrooms would be beneficial for students. Overall, Deltona is a great place, affordable and good city to raise a family.
