“Disappointed”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

stayed in this area for the past 4 years. since last year a lot of buildings have become rundown or derelict...which attracts the wrong crowd..
i was targeted while walking with my 10 yr old n punched in neck and necklace grabbed from it. Some locals and staff in a nearby store were very helpful and calked the police for us. In all the years of coming here i never experienced this or the high level of empty units...signs of worlwide recession i guess!!

“International Drive”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We went shopping at one of the Outlet Malls. We had a much better time shopping at a regular mall and half the traffic.

“Traffic and tourism central ...”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

It has the makings of all kinds of food, shopping , convention center,etc...but International drive is just a bunch of strip malls and a bunch of chain restaurants, bad shops and tons of people..take a ride over to old Orlando or go to Winter park.

“Idrive amust in orlando”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I have been visiting idrive since 1980. Idrive is a unique location for lodging ,dining and shopping. Anchored by the magnificent Orange County convention center. Hotel in every price range most of which are recently renovated,are numerous. Almost every type of dining is in walking distance. The Ilive center presently under construction will add to this already great slice of Americana.
