Kennedy Space Center, Floirda

On October 4th Rocket Delta will head up into space! I had the chance to visit the complex this year, its under construction for the new Atlantis Project which they will have Atlantis inside a building and you will be able to touch it and be on the space shuttle! Opens this July.

 Kennedy Space Center is a great place to take your kids for education, I would recommend for kids 10 and up because its a lot of reading, also most of the center is bus trips everywhere. We got the package that included a once in a lifetime up close on site of the launch pads! This was pretty cool although you don't get to get right up there your only less then half a mile away from where they take off at. The tour was about an hour on a bus.

My kids favorite thing of the day was the playground. Lol they wanted to spend all day there! Its a really nice set up which has picnic tables around it for parents to sit and relax, the play area is big enough for parents to run around if you want to. They even have a separate play area for younger kids like 4 and under.


 Kennedy Space Center is right on Cocoa Beach, Fl. So if your coming to florida for our beaches check out the complex tickets start at:
