Port Canaveral attractionsLooking for an “experience of a lifetime”? Well, that’s exactly what the Exploration Tower at Port Canaveral has to offer. We at Carl’s Van Rentals think that both Florida visitors and residents will enjoy this magnificent seven-story tower and everything it has to offer.

The Exploration Tower is home to multiple galleries and interactive exhibits celebrating Port Canaveral and the greater Florida region. The Tower building itself is architecturally stunning and offers great views of the Port Canaveral coast. Each floor houses a unique display highlighting the land, sea, and sky of Port Canaveral.

Many people come to the Exploration Tower to watch a rocket launch from the seventh-floor observation deck. From this vantage point, you can get a good view of not only Port Canaveral, but also each rocket launch from Kennedy Space Center. The observation deck also has many high-powered telescopes that you can use to watch a launch or to explore the starry Florida night sky.

Here are a few of the other attractions found at the Exploration Tower:

  • Get a close encounter with nature by viewing the Exploration Tower’s interactive movie. You’ll see Port Canaveral like never before on a two-story screen, seated in its 72-seat theater.
  • Relive Port Canaveral’s history by checking out multiple educational exhibits. You can find displays on early occupants and European settlers to more recent Central Florida residents.
  • Explore the waterways of Port Canaveral and the greater Florida region by piloting your own boat in a simulator.
