Here you can become a racing car champion at the I-Drive NASCAR kart racing, learn to fly like superman at iFLY Orlando and admire the city with a bird’s eye view from the top of the observation wheel, The Orlando Eye. As well as this you can also visit:
- Congo River Golf
- Fun Spot America
- Kings Orlando (bowling and billiards)
- Ripley’s Believe it or Not!

International Drive is a 40-minute walk from the hotel, but a taxi or public transport is better. For public transport walk 15-minute North to Vineland Road and catch bus 37, which will take you to International Drive.
International Drive is just over 11 miles long and is the major tourist strip of the city. You won’t want to walk all of it as the attractions are scattered all along it. Instead, take full advantage of the I-RIDE Trolley. It’s an affordable little green bus that operates from 08:00 until 22:30. A single fare is $2.00, and an unlimited ride pass for one day is $5.00.
SeaWorld Orlando Resort
Past International Drive, a free shuttle bus from the hotel lobby will take you and your family to SeaWorld at 09:20 in the morning and 15:30 in the afternoon. It is located 7.3 miles from the hotel, so the journey is quite short. From the drop off point you can visit SeaWorld or walk to Discovery Cove, to swim with dolphins or get wet at Aquatica, SeaWorld’s official waterpark.
Walt Disney World Resort
Only 10.3 miles from The Clarion Inn Hotel and Suites there is a wonderfully magical place that you have probably heard of. It is of course, Walt Disney World Resort. For many families this is the major draw of Orlando. If that is your main reason for visiting Orlando the Clarion hotel also has a shuttle service that takes you straight to Mickey Mouse’s funland.
After a short bus ride, you can explore Disney’s 4 leading theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. And that is not all! Disney has carefully planned and connected all its exciting locations by a variety of methods. Therefore, you can easily visit the waterparks Typhon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. As well as Downtown Disney, now known as Disney Springs. This is the entertainment centre that includes movie theatres, restaurants and more. It especially comes to life in the evenings. Once the sun goes down the bright lights of Disney Springs switch on and the exhilarating celebratory vibe that accompanies the magic quickly spreads through its streets.
With so many places to visit and enjoy in Orlando the Clarion Inn Hotel & Suites is an excellent choice of accommodation.
