Our first stop will be the quaint  downtown of DeLand, "New England in Florida”. Drive by charming turn of the century homes on Minnesota St and see the campus of  Florida's oldest private university on Woodland Blvd. Stroll down main street and shop for antiques or unique gifts at places like Wolf Gallery.  Sip a glass of craft beer at Persimmon Hollow Brewing Co or enjoy 2-4-1 cocktails before lunch (on your own) at Byte Bistro or Brickhouse Grill. Taste the most delicious confections at Sweet Things.

 

Then we're off to the Stetson Mansion  Christmas Spectacular Holiday Home Tour: The Mansion is still a private residence which welcomes guests for tours and elegant celebrations in the Stetson tradition of excellence.  Each year's decorations are always different. This year's theme honors the 200th anniversary of the song Silent Night.  Designer decorations from around the world will adorn the Mansion. Visitors will be guided through the first and second floors of the home by a knowledgeable tour guide providing lively commentary as holiday music from the baby grand player piano wafts in the background. The owner/designer usually stops in to chat to each group. These enchanting tours include the 3 main bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and the secret master closet while. Guides share the history of the mansion, details of the decorations as well as relate the inspiring story of the current owners extensive restoration.  Just when you think you have seen it all you are then treated to a visit into the original schoolhouse which has since been converted to a Zen like cottage featuring a soaring 15 ft ceiling. The school house might offer a few gift ideas including a picture book featuring the best of the last 8 years of Stetson Mansion Christmas designs by JT Thompson.
