An Overnight in Celebration, FL

Description:

Pleasantville literally came to life in 1996 with the creation of the Town of Celebration. As eerie as this might sound,
this quaint little town is tucked just far back enough from Disney and its related tourist hot spots to make it a quiet place to spend an overnight.

Totally tranquil and endlessly unhurried, the only time Celebration gets busy is during a Town Center events (which thankfully only happen a few times a year). The rest of the time, visitors, but mostly residents meander through downtown Celebration window shopping, grabbing a bite to eat, or catching a flick. There just the right amount of stuff to do in this 24-hour getaway to a picturesque place that's worth an overnight jaunt.

Day 1 - Orlando


Start your visit by heading down to Market Street, where you’ll find lots of parking on the adjacent streets. For dinner, you can make a reservation at one of the many great restaurants. Columbia is my favorite, but there is also Seito Sushi, Cafe D’Antonio, Market Street Café, as well as a few other great restaurants. Then you can spend a couple of hours prior to your reservation exploring the town.

Day 2 - Orlando


Celebration is a very walk-able community, with sidewalks on every street and wooden boardwalks throughout. Boardwalks lead through wetland areas where you might catch a glimpse of the many forms of wildlife that also make their home here. There have been many sightings of deer, turkey, and even alligators.

Another option, and my personal favorite, is to take a horse-drawn carriage ride from Front Street and around the main village. For a nominal fee, you can take a romantic, 20-minute ride while you admire the manicured lawns and traditional architecture.
