Kennedy Space Center

Kennedy Space Center is truly a fascinating complex of history, science, technology and space exploration. If you've never been before, you should plan a visit here at least once in your life.

We have to admit to a kind of 'love affair' with NASA. Our first thinking was that it's 'a man thing' but ladies love this place too... There is an excitement all around - even in these times. Great feats are performed from here - this is engineering on a massive scale.

There are films and exhibits depicting space travel, robotics, memorials to the astronauts, a 'life sized' Space Shuttle on display, the IMAX Theatre - 'a larger than life Movie' Presentation, a guided bus tour of the space center grounds, and one of our personal favorites - the 'Rocket Garden', a chance for you to really 'get up close and personal' with some of the earliest space missions and of the rockets they used to catapult themselves, defying the forces of gravity.

As far as a description of the Kennedy Space Center, probably no one does it better than the Space Center itself, just click on this link...  to be taken there.

Other links of possible interest:

If you want to track the Shuttle or ISS (International space Station) then take a look here... or if you want to look at the business end of the KSC click here...  or if you want to Listen to & Watch ISS and Shuttle broadcasts click here...  and follow the Resources links to Multimedia.

Shuttle Launch Schedules can be found here...

Visitor Notes:
If you're visiting the Orlando area during the time of a 'Shuttle Launch,' you'll find that guided tours are available to take you to one of the viewing areas at the Space Center. But use your discretion, as 'Shuttle Launches' can easily encounter delays or even a complete 'scrub of the mission' for that day - Only to be rescheduled for another time, another day, with the same possibility of this happening again.

Whenever on vacation, time is valuable commodity, just something to always keep in mind. Besides, if the Shuttle does go off as planned and if it's a 'cloudless' day (or night), you'll be able to see it anyway. Just look to the Eastern horizon. We've seen it many times. In fact the last time we viewed it was from the Kissimmee area, and at that time, we could even make out the separation of the 'Rocket Boosters' as they fell back down to Earth.

Time Needed to Visit: Within a 45-minute drive in both directions, the Kennedy Space Center is a 'perfect' 1-day attraction.

There are no height requirements that we're aware of.

Tickets : See our Orlando Attraction Tickets Pages (in conjunction with our partner; Travel Affiliates) for more information and to buy your tickets - here...

How to get there:
To get to the Kennedy Space Center from anywhere in Orlando, it doesn't matter where you're staying in Orlando, Lake Buena Vista or even the Kissimmee/Walt Disney World area, there's only one way for you to get to get the Kennedy Space Center - Hwy 528 East, the 'Beeline Expressway' - a 'Toll Road' that cuts East across the State. There's really no point in going any other way.
