Multi-generational travel is a great way to enjoy some quality bonding time with the entire family. However, when traveling with grandparents, parents, kids, and family members of all ages, finding an activity that will please everyone can be quite the challenge. I-Drive 360, International Drive’s newest entertainment complex, is the perfect destination. Open from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. and featuring a variety of attractions and dining, I-Drive 360 offers something for everyone.
You’ve probably already noticed the Coca Cola Orlando Eye towering over The City Beautiful. At 400 feet, the Coca Cola Orlando Eye offers a bird’s eye view of International Drive, downtown Orlando, the theme parks, and the many lakes of Central Florida. A ride on the slow-moving wheel is perfect for the entire family. Each capsules fits up to 15 passengers.
Next door are SEALIFE Aquarium and the Skeletons: Animals Unveiled! museum. Ideal for the youngsters and scientists in the group, both attractions offer plenty of hands-on fun. A rock pool at SEALIFE lets you get up close and personal with the marine life. Skeletons offers interactive exhibits all ages will enjoy.
Older children and teens will enjoy Madame Tussauds. Here they can pose for selfies with wax models of their favorite celebrities, sports stars, and actors. Current wax figures at the museum include Shaquille O’Neal, Ryan Gosling, Audrey Hepburn, Justin Bieber, Oprah, and more.
Dining and Nightlife
When it’s time to eat, you’ll find plenty of options at I-Drive 360. Treat the family to ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s or enjoy coffee and pastries at iCafe de Paris. Enjoy your snacks by the fountain while you admire the Coca Cola Orlando Eye.
If you prefer a full service meal, visit the Shake Shack. There you’ll find delicious burgers, hotdogs, and frozen custard. Gluten-free options are available; if anyone in your family has allergies, this is a good option to consider. Another great casual dinner option is Uncle Julio’s, which offers freshly made Tex-Mex classics. A special kids menu means the little ones will be happy with their meal selections too.
For something a little more decadent, try the Sugar Factory. Popular among celebrities, the Sugar Factory is famous for its over-the-top drinks, milkshakes, and other sugary specialties such as waffles and crepes. All drinks can also be made without alcohol, so those who can’t have alcohol can still join the fun. In case you don’t have a sweet tooth, the Sugar Factory also serves savory entrées.
Music lovers in your family will want to visit Tin Roof. This live music bar features well-known as well as up and coming musicians every night and serves Southern specialties. If you’re looking for a party, I-Drive 360 also hosts Latin Fiesta Nights about once a month with food, drinks, and music for the whole family.
Another important part of multi-generational travel is making sure you have accommodations that suit everyone. At Rosen Inn International, you’ll have quiet, spacious guestrooms so everyone can get some rest, but you’ll also have plenty of entertainment. Two swimming pools, an arcade, and a children’s playground will keep everyone busy, and there are on-site eateries and a mini-mart in case anyone gets the midnight munchies.
