Just over an hour's drive from the villa this is somewhere that really should be on everyone's list to do at least once. Make a day of it and take in one of the bus tours.
It took just 66 years from man's first powered flight to landing on the moon and here your can see all about our exploration of space. A good cafeteria and an excellent gift shop.
Educational and inspiring.

We travelled to the Kennedy Space Center Complex with two adults, two grandparents and three children aged 7, 5, and 2. We had received an online package that included our tickets and lunch for the day. We brought our own water and snacks. What a great day, they had air conditioned buses for the tour of the facility and then lots to see and do once we got back to the main facility. the lineup to get in was a bit long, but there was lots of shade and toilets nearby.Recommended for:

Even if you're only in Orlando for a couple of days, you've got to make time for a day trip over to the Space Coast. The Kennedy Space Center is an amazing place. At first, it seems almost too much like Orlando's theme parks. But once you walk around, checking out the exhibits (like the rocket park and the space shuttle simulator) and take a bus tour of the NASA facilities, you'll be impressed. Plan on spending the whole day here (arrive early) and if you want to have lunch or a meet-and-greet with an astronaut, check the website schedules and buy tickets in advance.Recommended for:

The Space Center is a must-see for aspiring young astronauts or science lovers. The experience is good for all ages and both informative and interesting. We happened upon a shuttle launch last time we visited which was incredible, even when viewed from the bus stop!

The shuttle program may be over, but the space center still has a WOW factor.
The tour includes a stop at the four-story LC-39 Observation Gantry where you get a bird's eye view of the Space Shuttle launch pads and parts of the world's busiest space launch facility.
The second tour stop is the acclaimed Apollo/Saturn V Center, where you will walk beneath a massive Saturn V rocket, relive Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon, and experience the thunderous rumble of a Saturn V moon rocket lift off.
Your day continues with IMAX movie screenings of "Hubble 3D." Hubble 3D offers an inspiring and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope’s legacy and highlights its profound impact on the way we view the universe and ourselves.

The Kennedy Space Center was something I had seen advertised in the airport on my many trips to Orlando, but I had never gone. Bored with Walt Disney World, I decided to drive out to the Cape to see what there was.
The Kennedy Space Center is a visitor's center for the larger space launch complex. It has several types of rockets on display, a space shuttle, which seems much smaller than you might imagine, especially on the inside. You can have lunch with an astronaut with reservations (although about 200 other people will join you too), and take a bus tour of the launch sites.

Kennedy Space Center is a very wonderful visitor center for those who wish to have their visit to be informative, fun and full of wonderment. It has various tours to certain facilities from the launch pads to the museum dedicated to the various space programs initiated by NASA, they even have a flight simulator for those on the thrills. Also, a good place for photos for those photo hogs.

incredible, fascinating and utterly immersive, Kennedy Space Center is well worth a visit. One of the greatest experiences of mt entire life was witnessing genuine hangers filled with space-rockets and at one part of the tour i was even able to touch a piece of moon rock! (yes, genuine rock from the moon!!!) great for families especially in terms of educational value, highly recommended.Recommended for:

Cliche but space ice cream is kind of weird.
The tour in itself is....
well, it's like watching the playback of that space movie with Tom Hanks but in person...kind of...in a diorama kind of way. I've grown up around these things most of my childhood so I can't say that I'm overly impressed and the fact is that it doesn't seem like much has changed since then.
But I'll tell you this much.... all the people there, visitors from all over and kids with that awe inspired look in their eye, kind of reminds me of a person who can make a baby laugh...that's precious. And anything that can do that to a kid must be good.Recommended for:
