Kennedy Space Center
One of the highlights is the Shuttle Launch Simulator, where budding astronauts are strapped into a cockpit and given a high-fidelity ride, which creates the impression of an actual lift-off. Another is the Rocket Garden, which is an awe-inspiring collection of engine replicas, full-size Titan rockets, spacecraft and scale models, and the 363 ft (110 m) Apollo Saturn 1B rocket. Shuttle tours and the Astronaut Memorial round out the attractions.

Doing what: Kennedy Space Center and Everglades Airboat Safari from Orlando
We had a brilliant time. Our tour bus driver was very good. He chatted to us most of the time telling us really interesting facts about the Space Centre and the space rockets.
The Everglades Airboat ride was also fun. We spotted plenty of alligators and eagles etc. A really good, value for money day out.

Doing what: Dine with an Astronaut: Kennedy Space Center Tour from Orlando with Lunch
Transportation was worth it. Do the shuttle sim for sure even if you cant see all of visitor center. Lunch with astro well worth it (good food, presentation, Q/A). Atlantis to be displayed late summer. Bus tour of launch sites, inside VAB, and saturn rocket (skip saturn show) was the best part.
The Kennedy Space Center visitor complex is located on the east side of the Intracoastal Waterway, accessible from Titusville via Columbia Boulevard and from Cocoa Beach and Orlando on Bee Line Expressway. Stop here for pamphlets, lockers, and the Space Shop, which stocks books on NASA and space travel.
