Cape Canaveral is the home of the Kennedy Space Center, the hub of the US human space program. From here, American astronauts confronted and overcame the challenges of space flight, conquered the moon, and set out aboard scores of shuttle flights to launch – and repair – satellites and build the International Space Station. You can learn all about that here and even visit launch pads. But Cape Canaveral, located midway between Jacksonville and Miami along Florida’s Space Coast, also offers fine beaches, an increasingly popular cruise ship port, the nearby Brevard Zoo and friendly hotels, inns and restaurants. Also located near the space center is Canaveral National Seashore, 24 miles of undeveloped beach with 1,045 plant species and 310 bird species.
