Celebration, Florida is an idealized vision of small town America.

The master plan for Celebration, Florida was created by Robert A.M. Stern and Jaquelin Robertson. They modeled Celebration after small American towns and neighborhoods from the early 1900s.

Businesses mingle with living quarters in the Celebration Town Center. Shops, restaurants, offices, banks, a movie theater, and a hotel cluster along a walkway that circles a small, manmade lake. This arrangement encourages leisurely strolls and lingering meals at outdoor cafes.
