John F. Kennedy Space Center (Cape Canaveral) ... Florida, United States. The site is near Cape Canaveral, midway between Miami and Jacksonville, Florida. It is 34 mi long and around 6 mi wide, covering 219 square miles. Around 17,000 people work at the site. There is a visitor center and public tours and KSC is a major tourist destination for visitors to Florida. Because much of KSC is off limits to development, the site also serves as an important wildlife sanctuary, with only 9% of the land developed. Mosquito Lagoon, The Indian River, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and Canaveral National Seashore are also features of this area. Operations are currently controlled from Launch complex 39, the location of the Vehicle Assembly Building. 3 mi to the east of the assembly building are the two launch pads. 5 mi south is the KSC Industrial Area, where many of the Center's support facilities are located and the administrative headquarters. Kennedy Space Center's only launch operations are at Launch Complex 39. All other launch operations take place at the adjacent Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) which is operated by the U.S. Air Force.
Newest Review: ... The coach driver made 2 more stops on International Drive before we set off for Cape Canaveral although there are actually 10 scheduled as part of the route. As soon as we hit the interstate our driver (who we later found could be a contender for Mastermind on anything connected to space) subjected us to a series of dvds including the space shuttle (narrated by Captain Kirk) and NASA's ... more

Booked through our local Virgin travel store we would stay on the Port Orleans (French Quarter) of the Disney Riverside resort with 14 day ultimate Disney tickets and 14 day passes to Universal Studios and all their other parks. Also included as part of our package was car hire and coach trip to The Kennedy Space Centre at Cape Canaveral. This was my first trip outside the UK, indeed the first anywhere and being afraid of heights I wasn't sure ... Read the complete review

While on holiday in florida we hired a car for the whole two weeks to enable us to cram as much of the sights and parks as possible. So we set aside a day to go to John F. Kennedy Space Center (Cape Canaveral). It took about 1 hours drive from our resort. the parking facilties were very good. We walked into the entrence hall and were really suprised to see aligators basking in the sun shire in the water areas around the site. The site is huge, we were taken to where the launch vehicle is built and attached to the rockets. Then followed the route that the the launch vehicle follows the tour guide had great ifomation not just about the rockets but about the wildlife ... Read the complete review
