Get to know Celebration

Celebration was founded by Disney back in the 1990s, as sort of a picket-fence EPCOT — a city of tomorrow built on theories of New Urbanism. It’s an idealized community where everything you’d need is nearby and happens to be housed in a building designed by a super-famous architect. Residents get around along wide bike paths or take casual strolls through picturesque parks or along the ubiquitous sidewalks. Though Disney is no longer involved, Celebration is close enough to the parks that it’s something of a destination itself. That sense of community is important here, and the town is kept clean and manicured. Celebration has a full slate of activities such as weekly farmers' markets and monthly art strolls, as well as bigger events — celebrations, if you will — throughout the year.

Living in Central Florida

Central Florida runs on tourism, but the draw of this place was felt long before a mouse ever got into the act. It’s a land of tremendous natural beauty, riddled with glassy lakes that teem with water birds, century-old oak trees that take up half a city block, and a climate that is ideal about 80 percent of the time — and it’s better than most other places when it’s not postcard-perfect. The region is a mix of former agricultural towns (quaintly preserved) and planned communities (luxuriously appointed), and in between are gardened lots along shady streets and long docks stretching into blue waters. Tourism fuels more than the economy here, which thrives with a vibrant food scene and a healthy arts community. Rich with parks, trails, and other recreational opportunities, Central Florida is a paradise al fresco for most of the year. The rest of the time? Well, that’s why everyone seems to have a pool.
