Downtown Celebration has always been one of our favourite local haunts. It is a scenic little town just south of Orlando, built by Disney, it has an almost theme park feel to it. It’s town centre has an selection of independent local restaurants, bars and shops, a Sunday farmer’s market as well as regular seasonal events. Celebration is situation on the shores of a picturesque lake and an abundance of animals and birds call the lake side home.
This morning when I arrived to the lake the sun was just rising and there was a mist on the water. It made for a heavenly picture. I set out along, the shoreline trail and greeted herons, egrets, ducks and other water fowl along the way. Squirrels and raccoons joined me further along and as I made the turn to head back, several hot air balloons floated silently overhead. You will normally see alligators and cruising in the waters of the lake but it was too early and too chilly for any self respecting alligator to be on the move this morning.
When you are next in the Orlando I encourage to check Celebration out, you won’t be disappointed. I’m also happy to recommend some good local dining options.
