Orlando Entertainment District

Free-flowing fun on the “Main Street” of Orlando

Entertainment on International Drive

If there was an official “Main Street” of the Orlando destination… it would be International Drive, home to the vibrant, action-packed Orlando Entertainment District.  The heart of The District is I-Drive (as locals call it), an 11-mile stretch that lights up the night – and day – with vibrant sights, sounds and activities including 300+ world-class restaurants, 50+ attractions,  four nightlife entertainment hubs and a non-stop calendar of live music and events. The fun is free-flowing, the good times are rolling, and the party is non-stop in the Orlando Entertainment District, so come check us out!

It’s always fun in the Orlando Entertainment District!

Fun, Thrills and Sights

There is every imaginable sight and thrill to be found along the strip, with 11 miles of adventure —  from sealife and celebrity look-alikes, to a giant observation wheel and sky-high thrill rides.

The ICON Park complex is the epicenter of the excitement, and a great “home base” for  exploring I-Drive, as it has loads of fun choices, a free parking garage and is gate-free with no admission.

Whether your vibe is fun and thrills, world-class eats, daily live music, or hanging on the lawn, this open-air, the 20-acre ICON Park complex spans an entire city block with fun for all ages (and energy levels).

Anchored by the iconic 400-ft The Wheel, the complex encompasses 9 distinct attractions; over a dozen restaurants, funky bars and live music hotspots; shopping galore; and outdoor marketplace perfect for strolling and relaxing on the lawn.

Once you’ve explored ICON Park, stroll down I-Drive for even more thrills, with sights such as “the upside-down attraction” WonderWorks, the weird and unusual artifacts at Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, the wind tunnel at iFlY Orlando and more.

Nightlife and Entertainment

I-Drive also offers a great vibrant nightlife for those looking to let loose a bit, with a wide selection of bars, nightclubs, live music venues and comedy clubs. Start with an ICON Park “bar crawl”, with nightspots ranging from boot-scooting country to the laid-back Keys, and 300+ choices of designer cocktails, fresh margaritas, craft beers and even moonshine. With so many choices, and a unique view of The Wheel towering above, a night out on International Drive is one to be remembered!

Shopping

If your idea of a thrill is shopping, we’ve got you covered with over 160 options to shop along I-Drive. From Build-A-Bear boutiques to our world-famous luxury outlets, the choices are both plentiful and fun.

Places to Stay

Looking for a comfy place to rest that’s close to all the action? The Orlando Entertainment District has a selection of hotels, extended-stay getaways, and luxury resorts — all within walking distance to the fun. The District has a hotel for every budget, and every dream vacation,  from Marriott’s stunning Castle Hotel, to the upscale Hyatt Regency Orlando!

Getting Around – The Trolley

I-Drive is a walkable district, and visitors and local alike enjoy strolling on its wide sidewalks. Or, jump aboard the I-Ride Trolley for a faster way to reach hundreds of hot spots, including shops and restaurants, along this 11-mile stretch.
