Will be visiting Universal Studios August 25-31, 2013 with kids ranging from 10-16. Staying at the Embassy Suites International Drive/Jamaican Court. We have a rental car. Would appreciate recommendations for restaurants. Steak joints, hamburger joints, breakfast places, diners, nice restaurants for dinner etc.
Would also like recommendations for things to do other than amusement parks. Good shopping/outlet malls? Would like to tour Everglades on airboat. Recommendations for reliable tour operators?
For the airboat tours on the everglades, we used www.bcairboats.com, really great family owned company and everyone else seemed to enjoy it. For shopping, you'll have to check out Mall at Millenia and there's some really great outlet shopping around there too. We stayed at http://www.hawthornsuitesuniversal.com/ so not sure about the Embassy suites and distance.... about 5 years ago
