International Drive Has It All.

While International Drive in Orlando may only be 14.5 miles long, it has everything one could possibly want in such a small area. Ranging from impressive theme parks such as Universal Studio and SeaWorld, the massive amount of fine dining options and more than 500 stores will have you wondering how you are going to fit it all in.

Divided up in fives

Did you know that even though it is only 14.5 miles, International Drive has five separate sections? You will come across these different sections:

North International Drive: This is located north of Kirkman Road. While it has almost no hotels, it does have some very good restaurants and outlet malls.

Value International Drive: Between Kirkman and Sand Lake. The second largest McDonalds on earth, the Wet'n Wild water park, buffet restaurants, and inexpensive restaurants. If you want to experience International Drive on a budget this is the place to be.

The Convention Side: Located between Sand Lake Rd and Westwood. Here you will find the expensive gift shops, fancy restaurants, upscale hotels and plenty of attractions scattered throughout.

South International Drive: Between Westwood and the end of I-Drive. Here you find Sea World, a number of restaurants, a large upscale outlet mall, and lots of timeshare resorts.

International Drive South: Granted, this can be quite confusing. It connects to Kissimmee's Highway 192 and has the Gaylord Palms Resort convention center .

It is about traveling smart

Some people go on vacation and have to travel left and right to see all the things that they want, they touch down in a different state and spend hours on end traveling to make sure that they see the attractions that they want. This is not the case with I-Drive, everything is right there for you to enjoy. It is about maximizing your vacation and your dollar.
