About Naru Restaurant and Sushi Bar

”Sushi with a Brazilian Flare”

Not only does Naru make tasty sushi in a fine Japanese tradition, but they also have some unique spins with ingredient combinations and preparations that reflect the company's Brazilian origins. One great example come from the bar where they offer Brazil's national drink: the caipirinha which are ma..de fresh and delicious, but then they bring in the Japanese influence with the sakerinha which replaces the churrasca run with fine sake.

They also offer a terrific special menu with salad, appetizers, tempura, sushi and sashimi for only $25 and you can reorder more of any dish except the sashimi. Terrific value!

It's on the outside corner of I-Drive 360 opposite the parking garage so it's easy to overlook, but go find it and you won't be disappointed!

About Skeletons

”Most Unique Collection in Orlando”

Over 500 skeletons on display at Skeletons - Animals Unveiled! This is a surprisingly comprehensive and well-thought out attraction with a very unique collection. It's like a zoo, but only with the bones. There are even some unique human skeletons on display. It's also bigger than it looks from the ..outside and we spent a few hours there seeing everything and reading all the great information on the displays.

The also have probably the BEST gift shop I've seen with some memorable items all with a learning and natural history theme. No cost to go in and shop either so definitely check it out. You can also see a few of the displays from the shop that will give you an idea of what you'll see inside. Very educational but also really interesting. Learning can be fun!

About Tapa Toro

”Fantastic Spanish Food”

Tap Toro offers a unique experience at their "Paella Pit" where you can sit bar style and experience the paella(s) of the day which are fantastic. If you want to go old school, they have tables and you can order some fabulous cold and hot tapas that make for a leisurely and delicious meal easily sha..red with others.

They also have a unique decor element in their "living" pictures. Flat screen monitors disguised as classic paintings come to life with characters playfully changing poses or actions. A fun way to pass the time between dishes!

Would definitely recommend this unique experience over your standard chain restaurant fare!

About SEALIFE Aquarium

”Great Little Aquarium”

It's not the world's largest, but it has a good collection, is very well presented, and a great value for the admission price. Could stand and watch the jellyfish for hours, and of course the sharks are always cool. The have a few large tanks, and in one you can walk through a tunnel and be surround..ed by the sea life. Overall a surprisingly nice experience and a great way to spend part of a day when you don't have a whole day for a park or something.

About Madame Tussauds

”Don't Call It a Museum!”

This is a great collection of very realistic wax figures, but don't let them hear you call it a wax museum! Nothing here is behind a velvet rope. You are encouraged to touch, take a selfie and interact with the figures! Very nice collection all the way from Abraham Lincoln to Will Smith to Peyton Ma..nning. Had a lot of fun there!

About I-Drive 360

”Great Way to Spend Part of a Day”

If you been at a convention or theme park all day or for some other reason find yourself with time to kill in Orlando, this is worth a stop. Nice variety of restaurants with great food, a few shopping options, a nice arcade, and four unique attractions. The star is the 400 foot Orland Eye, but Skelt..ons bone museum is Avery cool alternative to your run of the mill attraction. Also a very cool albeit small aquarium in Sea Life and Madame Tussaud's wax attraction is fun. Plus, FREE parking in I-Drive! Definitely check it out!
