Do not move to DeLand. Rehab centers, a lot of homeless people, highest AIDS rate. Drug dealing and gangs. Yes, they did restore the old corroded buildings downtown in a failed attempt to encourage new gowth. During the day I have no problem eating at one of the quaint little eaterys outside because there are a lot of business people there. However, I wouldn't be caught dead outside at night. Very high crime.

I found my trips around Florida a real eye opener. Many places were not as nice as I had expected, or had some drawbacks that ruled them out.

I looked at Victoria Gardens in Deland and liked it, but ended up at Plantation Bay in Ormond Beach. I like being closer to the coastline and to St. Augustine, and am very happy with my choice.

What a silly statement. Situational awareness is key to safety regardless of where you live. I was born and lived in NYC for 30 years and believe me, it is crowded with some of the most oblivious people in the world. Deland is beautiful just, as in any area, be aware of your surroundings.

According to google, this is what's wrong with it in the instance that the poster that you are trying to provoke was referring too.

"For DeLand, we found that the violent crime rate is one of the highest in the nation, across communities of all sizes (both large and small). Violent offenses tracked included rape, murder and non-negligent manslaughter, armed robbery, and aggravated assault, including assault with a deadly weapon."

That website the information was pulled from states that kind of BS in about 80% of the cities it reports on. Crime stats are largely useless in current day America and anyone who uses them as a primary resource for where to live deserves the contradictory storm of misleading information they'll no doubt become buried in via analysis paralysis. Very few cities in this country are that dangerous where finding desirable neighborhoods within them is so difficult. Seriously in other words, get a grip.

By the time I decide to move in there, it will be back clean as a whisttle .. Love The Town and it's Magic...Perfect distance from the Beaches, and laid back atmosphere.
