You probably know it as the home of NASA, but Florida's Space Coast has a lot more to offer than just the space shuttle. On this unique outdoor adventure, combine all of the region's treasures into one unforgettable experience that takes you from the launch pad to the lazy river and every local hotspot in between. In addition to fascinating experiences at the Kennedy Space Center, find yourself exploring swamps, backwaters and other eastern Florida ecosystems. Encounter migrating birds and unique wildlife in pristine refuges and come across Native American artifacts on expert-led field trips. Dine at eateries hailed by the locals, sing folk songs and unwind each evening in beachfront accommodations.
