There is little that is more exciting than the idea of space travel. Much of it still seems like science fiction to us, despite the fact that it is becoming ever more a reality. While there is not quite as much space fever in the United States as there was when Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, there is still a certain magic that surrounds the idea of space exploration and space travel.
If you want to experience the mystery and magic of the work of NASA first hand, there are few better places to do it than right here at Cape Canaveral in Florida. This is home of the Kennedy Space Center, the most important space launching pad perhaps in the United States, perhaps even in the world.
Not only is Cape Canaveral an exciting and educational trip to see the Kennedy Space Center, home of so much of the important work done by NASA, but it is also an extremely beautiful location as well. Although the Johnson Space Center in Houston certainly has its own charm, it cannot hold a candle to Cape Canaveral with its beautiful beaches and gorgeous climate. Even if you aren't into the whole space exploration thing there is still plenty to see and do right here in Cape Canaveral.
Beyond the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral also promises some exquisite shopping and dining, beautiful beaches that are great for swimming, beaching, or just getting a tan, golfing, fishing, and horseback riding: you name it, it’s available here in Cape Canaveral or just a short drive away. When you are coming to visit here on the Space Coast of Florida the only limit is your own imagination!
