45 minutes outside of Orlando you'll take a thrilling 40-minute airboat ride to discover the beauty and diversity of the Everglades. Look for exotic plants, flowers and wildlife such as the Everglades' main inhabitants the famous alligators of Florida. Next, take a 20-minute drive to Kennedy Space Center.
Your visit to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex includes a tour of NASA's launch headquarters, the Shuttle Launch Experience, two IMAX films (Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D narrated by Tom Hanks, and Space Station 3D), all shows and exhibits, and a visit to the Astronaut Hall of Fame. The tour includes a stop at the LC-39 observation gantry for a bird's-eye view of the Space Shuttle launch pads.
You'll also stop at the Apollo/Saturn V Center to 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. Other shows and exhibits at the Visitor Complex include a chance to meet an astronaut at the Astronaut Encounter Show.
On your visit to the Astronaut Hall of Fame you'll discover the world's largest collection of personal astronaut mementos, historic spacecraft and hands-on activities. Sit in a mission control console, take a virtual moonwalk, feel the pull of 4Gs in the G-Force Simulator and land the Space Shuttle!
Once you are all spaced out from Kennedy Space Center you'll head back to Orlando.
