Originally founded by The Walt Disney Company in the mid-‘90s, the master-planned community called Celebration was fashioned after historical American small towns, with civic buildings designed by world-famous architects like Robert A.M. Stern.
Today, Celebration is a charming small town with tree-lined streets, captivating architecture and a welcoming mix of shops and restaurants. In fact, Celebration was named one of America’s 10 prettiest towns. The picturesque downtown is compact and walkable. The community features a diverse and interesting mix of housing, from grand estate-style homes to condos, all of which are situated on pedestrian-friendly streets.
Residents and their guests can learn a lot about Celebration by taking the self-guided walking tour, a horse-drawn carriage ride, a Segway tour or by renting bikes to ride through the scenic trails.
Celebration is also home to many annual events such as Now Snowing during the holidays and Oktoberfest, which celebrates the beginning of fall. Be sure to check out the weekly farmers market every Sunday and the monthly art and wine strolls. If you’re there, stop by to see Peggy at the Better Homes & Gardens Fine Living office right there on Front Street!
