Cape Canaveral Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About Cape Canaveral?
Cape Canaveral to many simply means the space centre but it’s actually a city at the end of a barrier island called Merritt Island off the coast of Florida. The city sprang up to service the Kennedy Space Centre and is heavily involved in all things space. Whilst everyone comes to visit the space centre, there are other attractions including beaches, several museums and an old lighthouse.

Cape Canaveral Space Centre

How do I get to Cape Canaveral?
The closest airport to Cape Canaveral is Melbourne International Airport, 27 miles away. Its only international flight is a cargo run to Antigua. You can connect to it via Atlanta and Charlotte from the UK. An alternative is to rent a car from Orlando Airport, an hour away but the extra drive is more than made up for by the direct flights from the UK and Europe.

What is There to do and see in Cape Canaveral?
There’s the obligatory trip to the Kennedy Space Centre where the visitor centre has an amazing display of all things space accompanied by the stories of many of the space adventures that have had the world public holding their breaths. The complementary Space and Missile Museum shows how other technologies developed alongside the space program. The tour of the museum site includes other sites of interest such as the lighthouse.

If you’ve got plenty of money you can pay for a zero gravity experience where you’ll board a plane and, in free fall, will experience weightlessness but so will your wallet afterwards with a ticket costing in excess of $3500.
