Have the Time of Your Life in Orlando

Florida Flag

I live in Florida – precisely Orlando! One of the top destinations for families, couples, lone travelers and everyone in between. So, what is there to do in Florida besides Disney World? Most everyone, when they hear Florida, thinks about Disney World and Mickey Mouse. And that’s great, but, there are tons of things to do in Florida other than Disney World.

Kennedy Space Center

For starters, the Kennedy Space Center is located in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers tours and attractions relating back to the beginning of space exploration until today. Do you want to know what it feels like to be an astronaut or be up, close and personal to a spacecraft? This is your opportunity to experience it. Visit Kennedy Space Center and book your visit.
