WUCF TV explores tourism in Volusia and Brevard counties on this week’s Metro Center Outlook

Posted by Jennifer Cook on

Volusia and Brevard counties are working hard to secure more of Florida’s tourism dollars. This week on WUCF’s Metro Center Outlook, hear about plans to get families out of Orlando and into the surrounding areas.

Rich with culture, art and racing history, hear why Volusia County is more than just the beach.

“It’s all about families,” said Tom Caradonio, Executive Director of the Halifax Area Advertising Authority.  “Remind people of their great experience when they were growing up and why can’t they give that to their children and grandchildren.”

Further south, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is luring visitors with space history and glimpses into the future of space exploration. 

“We draw people from around the world,” said Andrea Farmer, Public Relations Manager for the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.  “In fact, 50% of our visitors come from outside the United States. They look at Kennedy Space center and NASA as a landmark.”

Go inside new exhibits that highlight the people, pride and passion that is the backbone of the U.S. space program.

Metro Center Outlook airs each Sunday on WUCF TV at 9 a.m.
