Today, we went for a drive to Cocoa Beach and the Kennedy Space Center. The drive is about 100kms from Orlando travelling along various freeways and the Florida Turnpike.
We decided to take this trip as it was recommended by our friend in LA (Thanks Jill !!).
The kids had a great time at Cocoa Beach. We went swimming, we watched the big speedboat races and watched heaps of planes and helicopters flying over the beach. It surely is a beach of action!
When we left Cocoa Beach (located in the City of Cape Canaveral) we headed up to the NASA Kennedy Space Center. We have a few pics below from the main road on the way in.
Here are some pics:
