Labor Day weekend’s just around the corner, and in our humble opinion you won’t find a better place to celebrate this traditional end-of-summer bash than Greater Orlando—with accommodations, naturally, here at The Celeste Hotel!
Now’s definitely the time to book your Labor Day escape to our whimsical and luxurious Tribute Portfolio hotel in East Orlando. Use us as a launchpad for holiday-weekend sightseeing, fun, and R&R in the heart of Central Florida!
Orlando marks the spiritual close of summer in style, even though, of course, warm postcard-perfect weather keeps on keeping on here in our subtropical playground well past Labor Day.
Many of the area’s iconic amusement and theme parks are cooking away over Labor Day weekend with special events. Take, for instance, the SeaWorld Craft Beer Festival, which runs through Labor Day proper (Monday, September 4th) and offers 100-plus delicious craft brews complete with food pairings: from street corn and tacos to pulled-pork sliders, bratwurst (plus pretzel-wrapped bratwurst), and the marvelous concoction called “boozy s’mores.” (And if you’re not feeling the brewskis per se, fear not: The festival also pours all manner of other refreshing beverages, including wine, cocktails, and seltzers.)
Over at Walt Disney World, meanwhile, you can do some culinary globe-hopping courtesy of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, which parties along all the way to November 18th this year. Stroll your way between numerous Global Marketplaces to taste specialty and signature cookery representing six continents, with dishes hailing from Japan to Kenya to Brazil to France.
Or revel in the summery sunshine and warmth with some quality time at an Orlando-area waterpark, from LEGOLAND to Universal Volcano Bay to Discovery Cove. (Check out our recent Celeste Hotel blogpost profiling some of these local waterparks as you plan your itinerary.)
Boat tours of the Winter Park Chain of Lakes, good old-fashioned Labor Day golfing, daytrips to the beaches of the Space Coast: There’s plenty more to fill your holiday weekend with a home base at The Celeste Hotel!
Our own Tribute Portfolio hotel on the University of Central Florida campus provides plenty of Labor Day delights: from soaks in our swimming pool to outstanding dining at our Aurora restaurant.
So come take advantage of our luxury accommodations and amenities and our strategic location, and mark labor day in the Sunshine State’s City Beautiful!
