    We visit I. Drive often on our trips to Florida :yes:

    DH had the best time at SkyVenture and I did nothing but laugh watching him!

    We have gone to Wonderworks a couple of times too. The last visit we did the Outta Control Magic Show with dinner

    On our last visit, we spent the morning at Funspot which was, well, fun! We did all of the go-kart tracks and had a bite to eat. HERE

    We were going to try the helicopter rides but I didn't think I could manage them with the motion sickness I get :unsure:

    We also visited Titanic on our last trip which was interesting HERE

    I admit to never trying any of the mini golf! :lol: We usually spend a full day on I. Drive followed by a meal at somewhere like Olive Garden, then the movies.

    If you are a shopper there are MANY shops at the furthest end of I Drive. Many on the approach to the Outlet Malls (Prime) but not all are good "buys" so be careful of what you choose.

    Festival Bay is along there too, but it's really fallen on hard times. I'm a little surprised it's still open.

    There is an I-Trolley you can take to move up and down I-Drive without having to walk (not always a good idea :eek: ) or drive yourself.

    Wet and Wild is there too. It gets extremely crowded during the summer though.

    The Peabody Hotel has the walking of the ducks :lol: at about 10 or 11 am and then again at 4 or 5 or so. It's been ages since we've been over (years, actually) so I don't know if they've changed the times or not.

    There is a really nice shopping plaza (name escapes me) right by Wonder Works and a Hawaiian-themed mini golf course. The plaza has more "upscale" retailers as well as several restaurants (Maggiano's, Tommy Bahama's, Hooter's (ha!), etc.) I REALLY wish I could remember the name of it...
