Orlando vacations are not complete without a trip to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.

Just east of the most popular Orlando attractions and theme parks, NASA's launch headquarters is the only place on Earth where you can tour launch areas, meet a veteran astronaut, see giant rockets, train in spaceflight simulators, and even view a launch.

Watching a Shuttle launch or even a rocket never loses its "WOW factor"
