An Out Of This World Groupon Gift Idea

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Groupon Gift Shop. All opinions are 100% mine.

We have friends who moved to the area less than a year ago, and in that time they have been great explorers visiting local places that my husband and I have talked for years about going with the kids. They are true adventures. So when thinking about their Christmas gift we knew it had to be a family experience. 

One place they haven’t yet visited that we love to take our girls to visit is Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. There is so much to see and do at Kennedy Space Center — plenty for adults to totally geek out to and lots of hands-on experiences for kids. We’ve taken the girls a couple of times, so when I saw the Groupon I knew it would be a perfect.

Who better to present the gift than Barbie — in a space suit! And what’s the next best thing to actual space travel? Why astronaut ice cream, of course!

Space Barbie
(I am currently giggling to myself wondering if their kids have ever had astronaut ice cream, because if they haven’t then that’s another experience!)

There are so many things to see and do at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. The new Space Shuttle Atlantis Exhibit is fantastic. 

I have to admit that I am a little jealous of this gift. Even though we have been to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex several times, we have yet to take one of the tours. Having grown up in Florida watching the Space Shuttle launch I really, really want to take a tour of the VAB (vehicle assembly building for those who aren’t total dorks like me) to see where all of the action took place.

I can’t wait to see my friend’s pictures from her family’s day at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. I am certain the adventure-loving family will have as much fun as my family has there. 

Groupon gift certificates for local experiences make a great alternative to store-bought gifts for all of the hard-to-shop for people on your list. For more Groupon gift-giving inspiration check out my other Groupon gift ideas:

  1. Haha I love it, especially the freeze-dried ice cream. As a child I visited the Kennedy Space Center but unfortunately I don’t remember much as I was too young. I’d love to make a trip back there one of these days.

  2. My husband and I live in Orlando and my husband have never been to the space center! This is such an awesome gift idea! Thanks for the information! 🙂

  3. I love Groupon and I love the Kennedy space center. I went for my first time when I was visiting my grandfather in Florida over Christmas break with my family – we saw Apolla 13 on the launch pad. I’ve gone twice since and would love to go again.
