What Bert Has To Say About Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach Metro Area


On the map, Daytona Beach is a typical Florida East Coast city with a barrier island, wide beaches, and an inland town and residential area, known for its motor sports, beach racing, and the world-famous Daytona International Speedway. But this metro area starts with the name “Deltona”, one not familiar to many outside the state but actually the largest of the three cities in this metro area. Deltona is located some 25 miles inland along Interstate 4 about half way between Daytona and the booming metropolis of Orlando. Having incorporated in 1995, it serves mainly as a bedroom community for both Daytona and Orlando, with affordable housing, much of it in planned communities and developments, and a high percentage of permanent residents. It is not a tourist place, and in fact, seems to hide behind lakes and woods from touristy Orlando and from the coast.
