Take A Stroll on I-Drive

Wednesday, March 11, 2020
Have you checked the forecast? This is not a drill! Mid 80s calls for flip flops, shorts, and sunglasses as we hit the streets of International Drive!
 
Sometimes, the best days are those spent walking around your neighborhood and seeing where the day takes you, especially when you live in Orlando’s most dynamic neighborhood. Check out all of these stops for a walk in the beautiful Orlando weather this week.
 

ICON Park

Park your car in their free, multi-level parking garage, and take just a few steps before you’re in the middle of the action! ICON Park is a 20 acre, walkable entertainment destination right here in the heart of International Drive. It is the perfect place to indulge in the warmer weather, as well as their 40 plus dining options, funky bars, boutiques shops and other can’t miss attractions like The Wheel and The Orlando StarFlyer attraction.
 
While you walk you can pop in and out of various different indoor attractions as well, like the popular SeaLife Aquarium, Madame Tussauds Orlando, Arcade City, and even take a ride on the Pearl Express Train around the entire complex.
 
There’s no doubt that beautiful days like these are meant to be spent outside, and ICON Park is the perfect place to do just that, while still remaining close to some of the best entertainment, attractions, and dining spots that I-Drive has to offer!
 

Pointe Orlando

Rediscover your laugh, your groove, and your voice at one of our favorite entertainment complexes here on I-Drive! Your walk in Pointe Orlando is sure to be vibrant, and eventful! This outdoor dining complex features various al fresco dining options, as well as retail shops that you’ll love popping in and out of. The retail shops here are open from 12pm to 9pm, and the bars and restaurants are open even later, making it the perfect place for a stroll in paradise, night or day!
 
Fuel up for your walk and wherever it may take you at one of the many restaurants here, like Marlow’s TavernLafayettes, The Pub, Taverna Opa and Maggiano’s, just to name a few, and then get ready to hit the streets of Pointe Orlando!
 

Fun Spot America 

Fun Spot America is known for a lot of things, ranging from their various different roller coasters, a 250 ft SkyCoaster, 4 multi-level go kart tracks, over 100 arcade games, and their new gator spot attraction. But, beyond all of this, they are also known as one of the best budget attractions here in Orlando! Many people don’t know, but if you’re not looking to ride, you can still enter and walk around the park for free!
 
Swing by and grab some fair food favorites and watch the rides in action for a day of walking in paradise to remember!
 

The Outlets 

Sometimes, a relaxing day of shopping is just what you need, and luckily you can shop and enjoy the beautiful weather in Orlando at the same time. The Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets houses 160 different outlets store, offering savings of 25% - 65% off on some of the hottest brands, every day! Not far from these shops is the Orlando International Premium Outlets, the largest outlet center in the southeast boasting 180 different stores, all in one place!

Lose track of time!

If you lose track of time during your day of walking in paradise, there are lots of spots along I-Drive that offer nightly entertainment for you to enjoy!
 
Tin Roof Orlando in ICON Park is a local music joint with nightly live music, and is known for their laid back atmosphere, and better than bar eats that are sure to do the trick if you’ve worked up an appetite from all that walking.
 
Or if you’re looking for some good old fashion southern grub, and some soul, B.B. King’s Blues Club in Pointe Orlando also offers nightly live entertainment for your enjoyment!
 
The weather that Orlando is bringing us this week is the weather we look forward to all year long! Don’t waste it indoors, get outside and take a walk in paradise, AKA, our backyard. Happy walking!
