Florida’s Space Coast Adventures Not To Be Missed
Out of this world adventure – A trip to Florida’s Space Coast isn’t complete without a visit to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor’s Complex. In one afternoon you can lunch with an astronaut, touch a moon rock and come face to face with real rockets. Mini astronauts will also have a blast in the Angry Birds in Space exhibit. But the real wow factor belongs to the newest addition to the Visitor’s Complex, the Space Shuttle Atlantis. I get chills each time the doors open to reveal the 122-foot space craft. Space exploration is truly one of mankind’s most amazing endeavors, and you can experience it all with your kids.
Take a walk on the wild side – It’s one thing to walk through a zoo looking at animals in their exhibits, it is a completely different experience when you get to interact with the animals. At the Brevard Zoo guests are welcome to take part in feeding giraffe, the lorikeet and the cockatiels — and it is just so cool. One can’t help but giggle at the giraffe’s long purple tongue grabbing for snacks and lorikeets perched all over mom and dad begging for a bite.
A need for speed – For Florida-style adventure the whole family can enjoy, take a high-speed airboat ride. Midway Airboat Rides takes passengers out into the marshy St. Johns river for a ride like no other. Along the way your guide will point out animal sightings such as gators, bald eagles, herons and even cow. After the ride get up close and personal with a baby alligator, snakes and a pot bellied pig inside the Midway office.
