"You must take the tour. It's..." Cape Canaveral Favorite Tip by dzni

Cape Canaveral General: 32 reviews and 29 photos


Favorite thing: You must take the tour. It's the only way for you to get close enough to the launching pad to see it, or see the production building for the spacecraft, or see a mock control center... Really, it's a must, and they may even be free! If they're not, it's only a nominal charge for the tour that takes you (in a nice, air-conditioned tour bus ;]) to the different sights of the Space Center.

Pictured here is the production building, one of the largest in the world, where they construct the space shuttles before they're ready to be launched.

Oh wow! I just checked on tour prices, and I'm sorry to say they've jumped astronomically since I visited 8 years ago! It's now US$26 per adult, but there may be more on the tour now, I'm not sure... something about boarding the Explorer? Not sure.

Fondest memory: Got a cool pair of NASA logo reflective sunglasses! :-)
