1. From Orlando: Kennedy Space Center Full-Day Tour
Enjoy round-trip transportation from Kissimmee or Orlando to Kennedy Space Center with a knowledgeable driver who will show you the best way to get around. Be transported to the cutting edge of space exploration through hands-on exhibits, movies, and presentations, including an astronaut encounter. Choose between roundtrip transportation only or select the option to include entry to the Kennedy Space Center. Prior to arriving your tour guide will let you know the best way to see and do the park so you can maximize your time. Upon arrival, start with a bus tour that provides a complete overview of the vast spread of operations, including the massive Vehicle Assembly Building, Launch Complex 39B, and the Apollo/Saturn V Center, with its recreated moon landing and awesome full-size Saturn V rocket. Back at the main complex, visit the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit, with its emotional presentation of one of the four surviving orbiters. Take a ride on the riveting Shuttle Launch Experience, a clever simulator with the inside track on what it feels like to blast off from the Space Center. You can also visit the Heroes and Legends center (including the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame), soak up the grandeur of the IMAX Theater with its eye-popping large-screen movies, or wander the Rocket Garden.
