International Drive, Orlando - otherwise known as I-Drive - is a nearly 18 km drive found in Orlando, Florida, located just a few kilometers to the southwest of downtown Orlando. This drive is home to the bulk of the cities tourist hotspots, similar to the Las Vegas Strip, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

There are also numerous museums, theme to restaurants, bars and outlet malls. Universal Orlando also makes its home in this area.
The initial portion of I-Drive was first laid out in the 1960s, and was meant to service the Hilton in South, which opened a few years later. The mind behind both the drive and the hotel was Finley Hamilton, who hoped that the hotel would succeed once Walt Disney World open in 1971. In 1992, the International Drive master trains and improvement District was put into development. The purpose was to manage and improve the massive growth and transportation issues that face the area. Because of this there is now the I-Ride bus trolley system that can transport tourists up and down the Drive, so that no matter where you stay you can partake in any adventure you and your traveling partners wish to partake in.
One of the sights that truly needs to be seen when staying anywhere on International Drive is the Orlando Eye.
