We were fortunate enough to see two shuttle launches.....Both Endeavor
First one we had planned in advance and got reservations at Manatee Hammock Campground right on Indian River across from Kennedy Space Center.
Manatee Hammock Camping Area - Titusville, Florida
They have an 'activity field/boardwalk/dock' so we just carried our lounge chairs down and watched the launch.......LOTS of oooohhhhhhhh's & aaahhhhhhhh's
Second time we hadn't planned as well and it was Endeavor's LAST launch so everything was full close by.
We did get a site up the coast north to Scottsmoor at Crystal Lake CG and then drove to downtown Titusville (20 mins) and parked in a parking lot sat on truck tailgate and watched launch
Crystal Lake RV Park | We are in the Heart of it all!
Not a bad spot in Titusville for viewing----earlier you get into town the better the spot can be had. Some right on beach at Indian River water front.
Also you can park/watch from NASA Causeway
Course there is Jetty Park right at Cape Canaveral
The Official Home of Jetty Park Beach and Campground | Port Canaveral, Florida
Carver's Cove on Cape Canaveral
