With designer shopping bargains and waterparks drenched in that famous Florida sunshine, holidays to International Drive might just be the best of the USA.

A world of entertainment

International Drive is Orlando's version of the Las Vegas strip – a 23-kilometre route that passes tonnes of Florida's biggest attractions. I-Drive, as it's often called, is home to popular theme parks and entertainment complexes, not to mention some of those famous American shopping malls and themed restaurants.

Dining and dancing

I-Drive's loaded with American-sized restaurants and buffets. For added entertainment, lots of themed venues stage comedy shows, music or crime-solving events while you dine. There's plenty more nightlife along the strip too, and some great places to dance the night away.

Raucous resorts

It's always a thrilling day when you hit up one of the world's most exciting theme parks. At Universal Orlando Resort, be one of the first to experience the new Harry Potter ride – Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure™ – or make a splash down a waterslide at Volcano Bay. The parks are just minutes from the International Drive strip.
