Cape Canaveral FL: Visit Space Center Launch Pads

According to a USAToday report, the Kennedy Space Center has expanded its visitor program. To allow visitors to get a more detailed understanding of the facility, NASA will give close-up views of launch pads and other areas. Most have been the sites of highly-secret operations for the past half-century.  

One tour feature is to Launch Pad 39-A, famed for the lift-off site of the six Apollo missions to the moon and other space flights. At Launch Pad 39-B, visitors will see where similar missions originated, including shuttles, Saturn and Skylab operations.

Tickets for the NASA launch pad tours are $25 for adults and $19 for children 3-11. There is also a fee of $45 for entering the Kennedy Space Center. For more information, go to kennedyspacecenter.com
