Friday, November 22, 2019
November is the beginning of the Holiday season, and with the holidays comes family gatherings and time spent catching up with both old and new friends where we share memories from the past, and make new memories to cherish for years to come. While you and your family are here on I-Drive this month, be sure to make time to stop at these 5 favorite family attractions to make new memories while having a blast!
 
 
       1. Madame Tussauds
 
Every friend or family member is a super star or superhero in their own way, so why not spend some time mingling with the stars and heroes we all know and love at Madame Tussauds! While here you’ll find wax figures and larger than life displays of your favorite movies, the biggest names in the sports arena, the hottest names in TV, musical talents from all eras, historical and political figures, and many other celebs who would find their way onto the guest list at an a-list party! Plus, now at Madame Tussauds Orlando they’ve got the Justice League Heroes ready to give you an epic photo op! Everyone in your group will appreciate the life-like figures at the museum, and will have a blast striking poses with their favorite superstars!
