The city of Cape Canaveral may be very small in terms of its size and resident population, but its importance is measured on an interplanetary scale. The star attraction is, of course, the Kennedy Space Center – NASA’s main launch site for manned space flights, including the Apollo missions to the Moon.

The area is popular with earthbound travellers as well as astronauts, not least because of its great beaches and excellent weather throughout the year. There are also plenty of visitors arriving by ship (that’s cruise ship, not spaceship) through Port Canaveral. An average of 10 ships enter the port each day, bringing thousands of people coming to enjoy some Florida sun. Will you be among them?
