A Day in Space

After spending the past three days at Disney World, we switched hotels and moved to Universal Cabana Bay in preparation for our visit to Universal Studios. After checking in, we visited the NASA Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. It was a really long drive from the hotel, but being able to visit a NASA Center was a big deal so we gave it a go.

Since we had to check in first, we arrived at the space center around 2 pm which was a little late already, hence we were only able to see a small portion of the center. We were greeted by the large logo of NASA at the entrance, and we also saw a rocket garden which showcased the different rocket ships that were used by NASA.

We mainly stayed at the Atlantis exhibit. Atlantis was one of the first space shuttles to be launched by NASA into space and we were able to see the actual Atlantis inside. (It’s the topmost photo of the post!). We were also able to ride the “Shuttle Launch Experience” which is a simulation of being sent off into space.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to catch an actual rocket launch and we didn’t go around that much due to the lack of time and we were still really exhausted from the activities done the past days. Nonetheless, we still had a great time and I’m glad that we were able to see a glimpse of outerspace just for a day.

  1. NASA Center is on my list of places to visit. I visited NASA Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley and I liked that place a lot. But, I think a NASA Center is much bigger and more interesting. Thanks for post.

  2. This is an interesting place to visit. Unfortunately never had time to go there while in Florida. Got a feeling that need to pay a visit there next time when around.

  3. I would love to visit Kennedy Space Centre, what an amazing adventure that must be. I remember that when I visited Moscow I encountered a space shuttle in one of their parks, it was intact and just left there to rot.

  4. Woah, another place to visit I should add to my list – it looks absolutely awesome! Also, I love the video – it flows perfectly especially with that choice of music! Xoxo

  5. I had this silly childhood dream of becoming an astronaut so NASA is up there in my top list of places to visit. So cool!

  6. I’ve only been to the Kennedy Space Center once and it was about to close, so I didn’t get to explore much. Your pictures and story makes me want to go back and fully check it out!

  7. It’s always awesome to learn about space, especially since we know little of it and we have yet to discover what it holds. I think it would be nice to take a tour here with the family! I’m glad you had a lot of fun!

  8. wow this looks like one lifetime experience, we love to visit a space center and see for ourselves the activities and exhibits there. You must have had great time 🙂

  9. I will definitely add this to my bucket list! NASA Center seems like a very interesting place. I have “a thing” for space. I will definitely enjoy visiting it. Thank you for sharing!

  10. I went here with my family years ago. At the time, I remember slightly complaining that we didn’t spend another day at Disney. But looking back I’m glad we went!

  11. Looks like you had a fabulous visit! I have several friends who’ve been to the Kennedy Space Center, but we haven’t made it yet. I hear it’s truly amazing!
