Deland is truly unspoiled america, I can see why the Spanish thought this place was a fountain of youth.
Eat: The park is well know locally of having some of the best pancakes around but that depends on who's cooking. Since the griddle is in the middle of the tables that who, is you! In the Old Spanish Sugar Mill resturant you can enjoy all you can eat pancakes for $4 bucks. My todler who is obsessed with cooking had a ball.
Swim: The year round 72 degrees warter is pure heaven in the hot Florida summer. The Spring is surounded but cement walls it has a spill way on the West side that creates a nice little warterfall. While most are swiming and snokeling in the spring pool, De Leon Springs atracts lots of Scuba divers getting there open warter certification. The springs are the perfect dept for this and it looks like great fun.
Play: Kayaks, paddle boats, and Cannoes Oh My!!! The have a geat rental post in the park with really resonable prices to get on the spring run and the rent just about anything you can think of except for bike which is a shame because thier is a lot of great bike trails in the park.
If you are in the area this is a great Natural Florida Destination. Filled with Food and Fun too of my favorite things. Added Note this is a Florida State Park the entrance fees are $6 buck a car load. If you wanna see more check out the video I made last time I was there.
