Blast off without taking any time off.

Ready to plan your trip? You’ll want to start by flying into Orlando and driving or taking a bus to the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex. The Kennedy Space Center website has directions for finding your way around Central Florida. The facility has put new measures in place for visitor safety, including limiting attendance, encouraging social distancing, and increased sanitization and disinfections.
While you’re in the area, you can fill your itinerary with some of our favorite places to stay, eat, and have fun with your family.
