Fit in a visit to Celebration
Celebration is a small town situated just off the Highway 192, very close to the junction with the 417 and is well worth a visit. It may be an area that you will pass almost daily as you travel between your holiday villa and the parks.
It is a modern development, but built in the old colonial style. A community where there is everything that you need but all very tastefully thought out.
The homes there are all individual – and it is fascinating to drive through the residential area and marvel at the various styles. All are kept to a high standard – and if you visit during the Christmas period you will be in awe at the fabulous Christmas decorations that owners put up!
The main shopping street is well worth a visit! Here there are eateries and individual stores selling a variety of goods. There is also a cinema – so why not make an evening of it and enjoy a film and a meal in one of the restaurants!
The main shopping area leads down to a picturesque lake. Why not grab a coffee here and relax whilst enjoying the view of the lake, or if you have more time, have a meal in one of the restaurants. If you are a Brit feeling homesick, or if you have never been to the UK and want to sample some traditional British fare, there is a typically English tea shop!
At Christmas time the shopping area and lake front are alive with Christmas festivities! Santa has his grotto near the lake and welcomes all the younger visitors! There are horse and carriage rides, a huge Christmas tree, shops selling Christmas goodies and of course the ultimate…. . snow which falls every hour – much to the delight of the children (some of whom have never seen snow before and believe this is real! ).
In the autumn, the snow machine turns to a leaf dropping machine to simulate the turn of the season!
At the side of the lake is a fountain which ranges from no water to high spurts – children love to run through it and chance getting wet! A great way to cool down on a hot day!
Celebration has been so well thought out – the residents are encouraged to use electric cars to keep it a pleasant environment! There is a golf course on the perimeter and also a state of the art hospital which serves a wide area (hopefully not something you will have to visit during your trip – but good to know it’s there! ).
All in all – Celebration is well worth a visit. Even if you have a full schedule – maybe just a drive through – it will only take a few minutes of your time to get a flavour – and you may then decide to make time for a longer visit!
