The small, unincorporated community known as Osteen is located in southwestern Volusia County.  Residents enjoy the serenity and closeness of a hometown atmosphere in close proximity to the expanded amenities in Deltona, the county’s largest and most highly developed city.  Recreational opportunities in this area are outstanding, encompassing nearly 50 miles of Atlantic Ocean beaches that create a world-class natural playground.  Beachfront cities such as Daytona, Ormond, and New Smyrna as well as regional parkland and preserves make this an ideal location for a four-season, outdoor lifestyle.  The scenic St. Johns River, most famous for bass fishing, connects magnificent parks with wildlife preserves along the county’s western border.  Local youth receive a quality education at the Osteen Elementary School, where students from preschool through fifth grade can take advantage of programs for exceptional students, comprehensive guidance programs, and a wide range of extracurricular programs and activities.
