North East Florida
Kennedy Space Centre
Your Orlando vacation is not complete without a trip to Kennedy Space Center. Just 45 minutes from popular Orlando attractions and theme parks is NASA’s launch headquarters – the only place on Earth where you can tour launch areas, meet an Astronaut, see giant rockets, train in spaceflight simulators, and even view a launch. Experience more on your vacation to Orlando with a daytrip to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, where the sky isn’t the limit – it’s just the beginning.
Spend a day relaxing on “The World’s Most Famous Beach” and get away from it all. 23 miles of sandy, white beaches are open to pedestrians 24/7 with free access! Cars are permitted in designated areas of the beach from sunrise to sunset, tidal conditions permitting.
Daytona International Speedway is the home of “The Great American Race” – the Daytona 500. Though the season-opening NASCAR NEXTEL Cup event garners most of the attention – as well as the largest audience in motor sports – the enormous 480-acre motor sports complex boasts the most diverse schedule of racing on the globe, thus earning it the title of “World Center of Racing.” In addition to eight major weekends of racing activity, rarely a week goes by that the Speedway grounds are not used for events that include civic and social gatherings, car shows, photo “shoots,” production vehicle testing and police motorcycle training.
It’s been called the quintessential beach town, and Cocoa Beach, an hour’s drive east of Orlando on Florida’s beautiful Space Coast, offers endless ways to enjoy recreation and leisure. Whether you are planning a family beach vacation, leisure travel, a business trip, a weekend getaway, or just a day at the beach, you’ll find everything you need in Cocoa Beach and the Space Coast area to make your stay one to remember. Do Not forget to Visit Ron Jon’s Surf Shop.
Go to St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra and the Beaches for a Florida getaway unlike any other. Here, brick streets lead to historic churches, living history museums, antiques stores, charming restaurants and B&Bs, and shops. A centuries-old fort stands guard, horse-drawn carriages clip-clop through the historic district, and ghost tours show you the area’s secrets.
Family attractions entertain and forty-two miles of pristine Atlantic beaches beckon. Ponte Vedra is a golfer’s paradise featuring the PGA Tour HQ, THE PLAYERS Championship and elegant seaside resorts. A year-round calendar of events keeps things lively. We’re the perfect place for your next family vacation, romantic getaway or gathering of friends.
