Exploring Nature Trails in Celebration

One of my favorite activities is to get outside and enjoy nature. We are lucky here in Florida to be able to enjoy the outdoors year round. While there are many lakes and parks where you can sit and enjoy the sights I prefer walking on trails. I have been on some trails that are a bit desolate for me and some that have lots of folks out enjoying them. I like walking the trails in Celebration because it's a bit of both.Celebration Florida Town Center

The local girl scout troop put together a useful *map of the different trails scattered about the neighborhood.  I enjoy the 2.6 mile Downtown Lake Loop. The Town Center is a good base to start and end your walk.  You can grab a bite to eat before or after your stroll. There are many local eateries to choose from; a few even have lovely views of the lake.

When you are at the fountains keep following the sidewalk away from the Town Center.

It's a good idea to print out the map of the trails before you head out, as these are not all marked.

This was a bit funny because we didn't see any of these animals, but because we came in the spring we saw about eight alligators. I couldn't believe how many were swimming in the lakes.  I have never seen that many gators at once!

There are surrey bikes to rent for the loop around the lake.  Check in with the hotel for more information.

This alligator freaked me out.  We came around the corner and almost didn't see her in the grass.  Then she got up and walked away.  I did not like being that close and seeing those teeth.

Once you go past the nature part of the "trail" the rest of the loop runs through the neighborhood.

If you're looking for a family activity or a stroll with a date I highly recommend taking a walk around one of the trails in Celebration; even if it's just a short walk around Lake Rianhard in the heart of the Town Center.  It's a visual delight worth exploring!
