CELEBRATION: THE COMMUNITY FOUNDED BY DISNEY
Celebration, Florida is a community founded by the Walt Disney Company in 1996. Today, however, all properties in the community are privately owned.
It is considered an example of "New Urbanism", a concept based on how towns looked in earlier times.
It focuses on walkability, neighborhood parks, convenient shopping, and traditional home designs.
Although not located on the Disney resort properties, it is close. The original main entrance - Celebration Avenue - is on US-192 slightly more than one mile east of the I-4 interchange.

May is a good month for Florida weather. It is still mostly cool, but it still gets hot all too often these days. Florida is open for business even during this pandemic, but most restaurants still require you to wear a mask when you go inside. Once you're inside, you can usually take off the mask. Servers and
other restaurant staff wear masks and do a good job cleaning up between customers. Everybody is doing their best.
HERE ARE SOME INTERESTING FLORIDA EVENTS FOR MAY:
FLORIDA WINERIES. Check the Florida winery nearest you. Many of them have wonderful weekend events that include music and wine tastings. Our site has information on 27 wineries scattered across the state. We plan to add even more when we have time to visit them.
FLORIDA TOURIST ATTRACTIONS. We have an extensive list of Florida Tourist Attractions. Some of them are well known; other are a wonderful step back into Old Florida.
FLORIDA TOWNS. We have profiles and histories on hundreds of Florida
towns and cities.
FLORIDA FESTIVALS. There are several outside events this time of year. Among these are outdoor art festivals and folk and bluegrass music festivals.
BEST BEACHES IN FLORIDA. Almost anything you decide to do in Florida can be enhanced by spending some quality time at a great beach, and best beaches in Florida will guide you in the right direction.
FLORIDA DAY TRIPS BY LOCATION. Hundreds of destinations within one hundred miles of eight major Florida cities.
FLORIDA DAY TRIPS BY THEME OF INTEREST. Many people like to take day trips to destinations
that reflect their interests.
FLORIDA ROAD TRIPS. Hundreds of recommended road trips with maps that let you explore all regions of the state.

Our most visited author pages are those of Randy Wayne White, the creator of adventurous marine biologist Doc Ford, Tim Dorsey and his unlikely protagonist, serial killer Serge Storms, and Robert N. Macomber, and his historical novels featuring Captain Peter Wake of
the U.S. Navy.

FLORIDA FESTIVALS AND OTHER EVENTS FOR MAY 2021
Information on the towns and places hosting these events, or near them, including lodging, can be found at our web page "Florida Towns."
A few events are cancelled on very short notice. I do my best to ensure that our information is correct and current, but I recommend you call before leaving for the event to make sure it's still on.
