vibrant restaurants and nightlife, and shopping to fit any taste or budget?
It’s called International Drive, a.k.a.

high-tech golfing and even indoor skydiving, here are five brand-new reasons to

New Orlando Attractions in the
International Drive Area

Indoor Karting & Games

Spearheaded by iconic racer Mario Andretti, this
attraction’s raison d’être is, of
course, indoor karting, which turns you loose on a professionally designed,
multi-level track with the best high-speed karts in the industry.

Entertainment also includes an extreme ropes course and
curved-rail zip line, two-story laser tag, virtual racing, hundreds of games
and HD TVs, and 12 lanes of boutique bowling, among other options. You can also
eat and drink like royalty at Andretti Grill – a full, from-scratch restaurant
– and the Sky Bar, which provides full views of the action on the tracks and in
the arcade.

iFly Orlando
Indoor Skydiving

If you’ve always dreamed of skydiving but can’t seem to get
past the “jumping out of a plane” aspect, iFly Orlando Indoor Skydiving can
make that dream come true. Billed by iFly as safe for adventurers ages 3 to 103,
the attraction uses vertical, wind-tunnel technology to help you float in a
wall-to-wall cushion of air. As an added bonus, Visit Orlando can save you $5 on tickets
for this one-of-a-kind experience

Topgolf Orlando

This multifaceted attraction features fun, competitive golf
games for all ages on 102, climate-controlled bays stretching over three
stories. Not a golfer? You might be by the time you leave, as their unique
golf-game concept has a time-tested knack for converting nonbelievers.


Beyond being a golf mecca, the venue also boasts an array of
gourmet food, bars, space for private events large and small, a rooftop terrace
with an amazing view, HD TVs and other features to keep your party going for as
long as you want.

New Orlando Restaurants in the

Pio Pio

Although this restaurant has been part of Orlando’s dining
landscape for years, they debuted a larger, more beautiful location just off
International Drive in 2017.  Founded and
operated by a husband-and-wife team of Peruvian and Colombian descent, the
eatery offers a full range of traditional Latin fare done right, with rotisserie
chicken being their specialty.

Julio’s Mexican Restaurant

Until you read the words “chocolate piñata,” you probably
didn’t even know that such a thing existed. Now that you do, you’ll obviously
want one, and the only place to find it in Orlando is Uncle Julio’s Mexican
Restaurant. There are plenty of other reasons to visit, thanks to the
authentic, all-scratch menu offerings. And if you’re interested in a unique
location for your next gathering, take note that the venue is perfect for large
