Friday, July 26, 2019
International Drive is Orlando’s most dynamic destination, and no matter what time of the year you come to visit, you’ll be met with tons of new experiences and good times that you’ll look back on for years to come; but, during the summer months… there is no getting around that it can get hot! The heat is one of the things we love about Orlando, FL, and although summertime comes and brings the heat with it each year, we’ve mastered how to make sure that it doesn’t stand in the way of having a blast while on I-Drive!
 
 
The essentials
 
There are a few things that you can bring with you when you are exploring I-Drive that will make beating the heat an easy feat! A few essentials that should make their way into your handbag or backpack are sunblock, to prevent sunburn, a hat to prevent the sun from hitting your face and neck, and of course sun glasses! Drinking plenty of water during your day is pertinent to beating the heat too, and we’d even recommend packing an extra water bottle or two to bring with you on your adventures, just to be safe!
 
Grab your flip flops and tanks!
 
A lot of keep your cool is about wearing the right outfit. Loose-fitting clothes that are lightweight and light-colored are the way to go! Shorts, tank tops, flip flops and a bathing suit are all the items you should have packed in your suitcase and ready to go!
 
Planning your day!
 
There are plenty of ways to have fun in the sun on I-Drive while making sure that a dip in the A/C is never too far away!
