“The significance of this day cannot be overstated. It’s a great day for America. It’s actually a great day for the world because there are people who thought that we had gone away, and today says, `No, we’re not going away at all.’” said a beaming NASA Administrator Charles Bolden on this morning’s news.
At 3:42 this morning, our friend Matt who is staying in the Havana Room, wandered into his bathroom and peered out the window across Ocean park at the dark horizon, when suddenly an orange glow began to grow out of the water and spread across the surface, and just as the color deepened to red the long white tail of the Falcon 9 rocket rose into the night sky from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
“It was so cool!” Matt exclaimed over coffee and melons this morning at breakfast. “I thought about waking my wife but she looked so comfy I didn’t want to disturb her,” he said.
This year NASA ended the Shuttle Program, but the fun definitely hasn’t ended for space fans here at our romantic getaway in Florida. With lots of rocket launches coming up and new behind the scenes tours of the vehicle assembly building and launch pads, our guests say that Kennedy Space Center visits are even better than ever.
We think a visit to our romantic Florida bed and breakfast combined with a fun, once-in-a-lifetime visit to Kennedy Space Center is the perfect getaway. Here’s how it goes:
- 9 am – Call down for breakfast in bed
- 12-3 – Take a behind the scenes tour of Kennedy Space Center
- 5-6 – Come to wine hour and talk about your cool tour with the other guests
- 7-8:30 – Walk down and watch sunset on the river before having a romantic dinner at Djon’s
- 8:30–9:30 – Listen to a little live jazz in the bar before walking back to our romantic Florida getaway
- 10-? – Sit in our bubbling spa pool with a glass of wine, look at the moon, think about your day and whisper sweet nothings in your partner’s ear…
Doesn’t that sound like a good day?
