Kennedy Space Center also has many space history exhibits, a life-size Space Shuttle display, bus tours, restaurants and gift shops.
If your visit coincides with the launch of the Shuttle or an expendable vehicle you can buy tickets to get a close up view from the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
Kennedy Space Center is located about 35 miles east of Orlando International Airport in Brevard County, Florida.
NOTE: If you arrive at any time past six hours before a launch, you will find a guard stationed at the gate. If you do not have a car pass or other valid access authorization, you will not be allowed to enter the Space Center.
