GOD SPEED ATLANTIS - A SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH & END OF AN ERA!

Lift off of Atlantis!

Every angle available was used for viewing the launch!  This was taken in our rally lot!

Residents & guests viewing the launch from our golf range.

Seconds after lift off!

Thankfully the clouds parted for just a short period!

We are all elated and sad at the same time as the shuttle program comes to a close after 30 years.  Kennedy Space Center will continue as a top-rated attraction so that you can view the history of the space program, both past and future!  The Great Outdoors RV/Golf Resort continues to welcome RV'ers to the area, where we are just a short distance from all of central Florida's main attractions, and minutes away from the Space Center, Daytona Beach & the International Speedway, not to mention miles of natural beaches!  Spend the summer with us - our summer rates continue with our special Stay 2 Nights, Get the 3rd Night Free!  Call us a 800-621-2267 for more information on RV rental sites and rates!

Waiting For Launch!!!

Cindy Taylor and Nancy Davis were kept busy over the past few days checking in our guests at The Welcome Center!  We had a record number of first-time visitors visiting us for the final shuttle launch of Atlantis.  Our wonderful staff were on hand to welcome everyone with everything from lemonade to wine, donuts to cheese platter!  The party atmosphere was not dampened by the rain, and as I write this - the sun is shining and we are less than 30 minutes from launch.  Keep your fingers crossed!
