    We went to KSC a couple of weeks ago, mainly to say "Goodbye" to the shuttle Atlantis as it was due to take its final mission a couple of days after we returned home.
    It has been a while since I was last there when at the time I did a day doing the Astronaut Training Experience which is highly recommended.
    Even though the shuttle programme is now almost over, there are loads of things there which will occupy you for a full day.
    Take the bus for a narrated guided tour of the complex, followed by some amazing films in the Imax Theatre.
    During the bus tour, you make a stop at the Apollo Complex where you can take lunch alongside a Saturn V rocket from the Apollo mission days.
    At the main centre itself there is a shuttle simulator which is much more realistic than Mission Space at Epcot, not to mention the "Rocket Garden" and other attractions and shops.
    A visit to KSC is highly recommended if you have a day to spare. :thumbsup:
