RE: visiting for first time
Hi! I hope I can be helpful with your trip. I live right next to the speedway and not too far from Orlando. August is right during Hurrican season, but so far, we haven't had any yet. They say that means that we should be hit later in the season, which is late August, early September. As for your husbands wish, I have the brochure right in front of me for the Richard Petty Driving Experience. I work at a hotel in the area, and I have heard from many guests that this was the ultimate experience, so Im sure your husband will love it! Just call 1-800-be-petty to make a reservation. He can either ride along with a driver or drive on his own! It's a bit pricey (around200) but well worth it if he's a fan.
To go swimming with dolphins (or sharks!) just call 800-406-2244, or you can go online to book. This sounds like fun, but I think I would be scared, even with the dolphins!
As for 0 gravity, Im not to familiar with the Kennedy Space Center. I was there once, they have a great gift shop! And dont miss the Imax show, your kids will love it. To make reservations for the Astronaut Training Experience, call 321-449-4400 to book.
If you want some great souvenirs and have some time on your trip, you should visit the Daytona Flea & Farmers Market. It's huge and full of really great gifts to bring back home! It's open year round and it's great just to look around!
Well, I hope I helped in some small way. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me!
