A few months ago I met my aunt for coffee in DeLand.
Boston Coffehouse was my choice place to meet because when you’re a Yankee living in the south coffee and Boston in the same title draws you in like a moth to a flame.
After our visit and visiting a few stores we said goodbye.
I still had time to burn before I needed to pick up Aubry from school so I hit the streets of DeLand. I pulled up my trusty google map app and walked to the closest green space.
If you drive through DeLand on Route 44 then you’ve passed this park. Chess Park is on the north side of Route 44 about a half a block west of Woodland Blvd.
I walked though Chess Park to W. Indianna Ave, past the Volusia County Courthouse to Athens Theatre.
I then double backed on W. Indiana and walked around the long reflection pool on my left. Then it was back to Woodland Blvd where I weaved in and out of some interesting shops, a record store and quickly past Mr Bill’s Donuts, because I was trying to avoid donuts that day…. I plan to return.
If you go and need a lunch spot then Taco Amigo, corner of N. Florida Ave and Woodland at an auto shop on Woodland Ave, is the place to go. It’s been called a “hidden gem”. Closed Monday and Tuesday, great prices, great food.
I’m sure there’s lots more to see and I hope to visit again soon. If you’ve been and have some favorite places let me know.
