As a Realtor specializing in Celebration FL Real Estate, I spend a lot of time talking about the amenities here. I am always telling people how much there is to do here and how we are truly a community. I find that this is hard to convey to people who don’t live here yet. We have a community online forum here which posts events and news, so I thought I would share the weekly update, so you can see for yourselves all the things to do here.
