Exploration Tower in Cape Canaveral, FL

Exploration Tower is a beautiful architectural work in Port Canaveral, FL. With observation decks, exhibits for the whole family, an auditorium, eatery, gift shop, and more, the Exploration Tower is a captivating stop when visiting Port Canaveral, FL. It’s especially wonderful if you time your visit along with a rocket launch from the nearby space center, as well as during times where the cruise ships are coming or going from Port Canaveral.

Hosting Events at Exploration Tower

We often accommodate beach weddings here at the Cape Winds Resort, and a wonderful location for your wedding reception is one of the floors of Exploration Tower. They offer a wide selection of options for your reception, including a variety of approved and licensed caterers that give you standard wedding reception offerings, as well as some options outside of the standard, such as BBQ dinners. You can also choose to have a reception outdoors under the stars in this beautiful location.

The Place to Watch a Rocket Launch

From the 7th floor of Exploration Tower, the views of a rocket launch at Kennedy Space Center will amaze you. Exploration Tower also provides high-powered telescopes along the promenade, so staying after the launch leaves a nighttime filled with star gazing and visual space exploration.

The many exhibits at Exploration Tower are centered on the area—from the history to the wildlife in the area.  There are movies to watch about how Port Canaveral came to be, too.
