The 200 square mile is part of Florida’s “Space Coast”, midway between Jacksonville and Miami, and 35 miles east of Orlando. Communities here include Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral. The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers many exhibits and experiences for the public; visitors also take a bus tour through restricted areas used by NASA for space launches. The Center is named for the President who committed the US to “race to the moon” in 1962. The Kennedy Space Center is entirely oriented to educational visits and intended to thrill and inspire kids with the history of the space program and the vision of space exploration. An action-packed educational tour starts with a guided bus Tour of Restricted Areas that takes you past: two giant launch pads; the Vehicle Assembly Building, the largest building in the world; the 3-1/2 mile crushed-rock “crawler way” along which the Space Shuttle gets hauled to the launch pad; the gargantuan “crawlers” that do the hauling (and crawl at about one mile an hour, traveling only 35 feet per gallon of gas.) Visitor Complex – your point of entry to the Kennedy Space Center. The Tour includes a stop at Launch Complex 30 Observation Gantry and the Apollo/Saturn V Center. Spend a few hours in the Apollo/Saturn V Center. In this Center is a fully restored 363-foot Saturn moon rocket- click above for a photo. Kids will wonder if this giant rocket is “real”: it is authentic, but is made up of stages for Apollo missions that were canceled. Also at the Apollo/Saturn V Center are the Lunar Surface Theater and the Firing Room Theater, which bring to life dramatic milestones in the Apollo moon landing series. At the Visitor Complex / Space Center, there are lots to see and do: Two I-Max Theaters A $60M “Shuttle Launch Experience” attraction Children’s Play Dome A replica of a NASA shuttle orbiter — you can tour inside Giant gift store, with space-themed Lego, K’nex, and lots, lots more The Rocket Garden at the Kennedy Space Center that includes a resource center for teachers Space Explorer Program Lunch with an Astronaut The Astronaut Hall of Fame has brief simulator “training rides,” such as a simulated mission to Mars: can’t compete with any of the theme parks but still, this area is fun for kids and gives them a chance to run around and try different spacey stuff. Also visit Cocoa Beach & Wal-Mart: Wal-Mart Stores is an American public corporation that runs the largest chain of discount department stores.
