Cape Canaveral – Kennedy Center
Aren’t we lucky to live in the country who put a man to walk on the moon for the first time? Of course we are. Thanks to an agreement between the Department of Defense and NASA to change Cape Canaveral from a military installation into the Space Coast.
Although it was previously name Missing Firing Laboratory by the Air Force, it was later renamed the Kennedy Space Center, to honor President Kennedy who was responsible to put the first man on the moon.
We all can remember the Space Shuttle Program, the Hubble Space Telescope and the Apollo Missions, which incidentally, is celebrating 50 years this month, July 2019.
Today we can go to the Visitors Complex, offering plenty of activities for adults as well as for children. Make it somewhat an educational vacay for them as well.
This port has become a hub for the Cruise Line Industry. However, having easy access to the Atlantic Ocean, this port in the past was primarily the port of choice to import petroleum from Central and South America.
Rather quickly, it was overtaken by the citrus industry, importing from Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. It was and continues to be the port used by NASA, to retrieve, receiving, tracking space vehicle or/and its components.
Nevertheless, the Cruise Line industry is enjoying this port to conduct their travel business, moving thousands of passengers on a daily basis to destinations like the Caribbean, Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica and more.
