Attractions

International Drive is home to some of the world’s best attractions. There really is something for everyone. 

For Families

As a family we all love international drive. There is something there for each of us and lots that we can do together as a family. We like to take a day out of our vacation to simply explore international drive and visit the family friendly attractions. We have even in the past rode the I-ride up and down merely just for the sites of international drive. 

But one of our favourite things to do on international drive is to have a family round of mini golf. We are a competitive family and one of us is bound to come away in tears but none the less we have fun and lots of laughs around the course. The one we visit most is pirates cove adventure golf. It’s in a perfect location as once we are done there is so many other things around it within walking distance that we can get to. Voted the best course in Orlando its theming is striking and hole designs, inventive. Its designed for everyone to have the ultimate enjoyment.
