Resorts That Offer You an Out of This World Experience

In 1959, the recently formed National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) took control of a significant portion of Patrick Air Force Base in Florida. Just 10 years later, July 16, 1969, the Apollo 11 launched from Kennedy Space Center – sending a man to the moon.

For years, people traveled from across the country to witness the historic launches. Now it's your chance.

If you want to experience future space launches, plan a trip to stay at a resort in Cape Canaveral or Cocoa Beach, where you can see the launch from your resort.

Spend the day playing a friendly game of mini-golf, floating on the lazy river, or watching a movie in the on-site theater. Other amenities include an activity center, arcade, playground, pools with hot tubs, and a four-story waterslide.
