Whether you are a Space enthusiast or have zero knowledge of things beyond our earth, the Kennedy Space Center’s Visitor Complex in Orlando holds a lot of appeal for most, young or old, male or female.

And who doesn’t love it when a boat ramps up the speed? Hold on to your hats and enjoy the waves crashing around you. Daytime cruises can be wonderful, but sunset ones magical and certainly more romantic. Watching the sun lower on the horizon while breathing in the salty air can be simply breathtaking.

The fairly recent addition of the Animal Care Center gives visitors the chance to see the vital work of the Busch Garden veterinarians in the state-of-the-art animal hospital.
