It's usually crowded, traffic is often bad, it's certainly touristy....basically it's Orlando condensed along one long thoroughfare. It's silly to be cynical or condescending, it is what it is; commercial, often a bit chaotic and usually harmless fun. There are mediocre to excellent restaurants, souvenir...More

Traffic is crazy. There are a lot of people and a lot of cars, buses, and more. Plenty of restaurants. Plan on getting caught up in buying junk.

The traffic on I-drive is always a disaster, with every rental car in the world on this street at the same time. If you must drive, go later at night or earlier in the morning, to do your outlet shopping and your visit to Dennys

As a tourist, you can find anything here. I loved just driving and looking. I'm sure the locals did not appreciate but the sights and sounds were awesome.
