Originally a planned residential community called "Deltona Lakes," the city has since grown to become larger than many of its Volusia County neighbors, and is in fact the county's largest city by population. Many people who work in Orlando or Daytona Beach live in Deltona.
The city continued to grow during the 2010s, and during this decade a movie theater, a satellite Bethune-Cookman University campus, and a Halifax Health emergency department facility were opened in Deltona.
Deltona has a semi-tropical climate, with precipitation highest during the summer, as is common for cities in Central Florida.
