    -US Air Force Space & Missile Museum: After serving as a launch site in the early days of space exploration, this museum showcases the history of rocketry and space flight. The first American satellite was launched from here, as well as the first launches with primates. Experience a little space history!

Best of the bunch is the Shuttle Launch Experience, where you take part in a launch simulation!

    Weather in Cape Canaveral

    With so much water on the coast and in the lakes and rivers of the Everglades, the coastal climate never really reaches the excesses found in inland states. Mild in the short winters, hot in the long summers, most of the rainfall occurs with summer thunderstorms. High temps in the summer get into the mid 30s Celsius, and top out in the winter in the low 20s C, making Cape Canaveral the perfect year-round holiday destination.

    Melbourne International Airport is the most convenient travel hub at 26 miles from Cape Canaveral, but Orlando International Airport trumps Melbourne with direct flights to Europe and a 50 minute drive away. Flying and driving a rental car is quite easily the best way to go in America. Other options include Melbourne's Greyhound station and taxiing. There are no convenient rail facilities.
