We have lift-off! For a great family day trip from Miami, visit one of Florida's most popular and fascinating attractions, the Kennedy Space Center. Take a virtual flight to the moon and back, enjoy an IMAX film and visit the US Astronaut Hall of Fame on this kid-friendly, full-day tour from Miami.
Your day trip to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex begins with pickup from your Miami hotel. From there you'll head to up to Orlando and change vehicles to head over to the Space Coast. Your Kennedy Space Center visit includes a tour of NASA's launch headquarters, the Shuttle Launch Experience, two IMAX films, a visit to the US Astronaut Hall of Fame, and additional shows and exhibits.
Visit the LC 39 Observation Gantry for a bird's-eye view of the space shuttle launch pads. Stop at the Apollo/Saturn V Center, where you can walk beneath a massive Saturn V rocket. Relive Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon, and experience the thunderous rumble of a Saturn V moon rocket lift-off. Watch IMAX movie screenings of Hubble 3D, narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, or Space Station 3D, which takes you on a virtual trip to the International Space Station.
Other exhibits and activities at the Visitor Complex include the Astronaut Encounter Show, where you have a chance to meet an astronaut, and the Shuttle Launch Experience, where you can find out what it feels like, looks like and sounds like to launch into space and orbit Earth aboard a simulated space shuttle.
You'll enjoy 4 to 5-hours at the Kennedy Space Center before heading back to Miami.
