Space Coast: Kennedy Space Center & Beach Fun in Florida

With spring just around the corner, you may be considering taking a vacation to Florida’s Space Coast. With beaches and activities for the entire family, not to mention the Kennedy Space Center, the time spent here will be well worth the trip.

According to the official website of Florida’s Space Coast Office of Tourism, here are just some of the launches scheduled for April:

  • On April 1: The United Launch Alliance Delta 2 rocket will launch the Space Tracking and Surveillance System (STSS) technology demonstration mission for the Missile Defense Agency. Launch time: noon.
  •  On April 6: The United Launch Alliance Delta 4 rocket will launch the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite O, or GOES O, for NASA and NOAA. The weather satellite will orbit 22,300 miles above the planet to monitor conditions across the U.S. Launch time: noon.
  • On April 10: The United Launch Alliance Delta 2 rocket will launch NASA’s Kepler spacecraft to discover and characterize hundreds of planets. Launch time: noon.
  • On April 24: The United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket will launch NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter to the moon and a lunar impactor secondary payload called the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite. The rocket will fly in the 401 vehicle configuration with a four-meter fairing, no solid rocket boosters and a single-engine Centaur upper stage. Launch time: noon.

Transportation is provided for viewing these launches where you and your family will be only seven miles from the shuttle pads. You can purchase tickets at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.

You can select accommodations at the well-known Cocoa Beach area resorts, situated along 72 miles of beach. In addition, the weather is fabulous and there are an abundance of activities to participate in such as Brevard Zoo, Space Coast Museum, and other exciting venues as well.

Cocoa Beach accommodations are both affordable and family-friendly. Check out the many hotels, Inns, and beach resorts to determine availability and price. Also, call the airlines on any Wednesday to ascertain the lowest fare available if booked a minimum of two weeks in advance.
