NASA's Kennedy Space Center; Orsino, Fla.

In the inspiring words of Star Trek, the Kennedy Space Center aims to provide each visitor the chance to "boldly go where no man has gone before" -- or woman, for that matter. The vision is simple at the Space Center: explore the limitless world of outer space without the requisite years of training it takes to be an astronaut, and without the heavy funding necessary to support space travel and research.

Instead, all in one day, try meeting a real-life veteran astronaut, experience a simulated shuttle launch, test out inter-galactic travel, watch the breathtaking pictures captured by the Hubble Telescope and walk the Astronaut Hall of Fame. No matter which attractions you choose to explore, you'll walk away light-years wiser than before.
