You have a bit of vacation time coming up and you feel that you should go down south for a while. You want to make the most use of your free time so you need to as much research as possible. In so doing you will be able to full enjoy your Nasa Port Canaveral Tour.
Do budget at least two to four hours if you just want a quick walk through of the entire complex. The basic package should be quite filled with interesting attractions such as peering through a powerful telescope, looking at interesting historical information and spacecraft, and even touching moon rocks. The experience can be made much richer also if you avail of a guided tour with an experienced guide.
Tour options also include a sort of meet and greet with real life astronauts whom you can also opt to have lunch or even dinner with. This first hand experience with our very own space explorers is definitely a great learning experience not only for the young, but for the not so young as well.
If you or any member of your group would prefer a bit of shopping blended in with the tour, this is possible also. A package add on is available where you can head off for a bit of shopping at the center’s very own shopping mall before you do go head back out to the main cities later on in the day.
If driving out from the main cities of Orlando or Miami to Port Canaveral is a bit too much for you, they do have packages wherein there are continuous bus transfer to and from these main cities, so it will make your experience less cumbersome and seamless.
Do take note of peak periods in visiting the place, which will usually fall in between the months of October and April. The weather is much better during these months, with temperatures being more comfortable and humidity bearable. If you do plan to travel here within these inclusive months or month range, it may be best to book your trip and plans way ahead of time to avail of some early bird discounts and offers that may be around.
In addition, do take along warm weather clothing and not anything too heavy. Light clothing, made of cotton or even rayon is very much the recommended wear for this place. Do take along an ample supply of drinking water when going on these tours, which will involve a fair amount of walking also. It may also be a good idea to bring along some insect lotion and also some sunblock as well, in particular if you do want to partake of some additional outdoor activities like taking an airboat ride out in the marshes for example.
