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.
