- Where's the best place to park to see a Space Shuttle launch?
- Titusville, without a doubt, is the
best place to see a
Space Shuttle launch, if you haven't got a NASA pass! While Cocoa Beach
used to be best during the Mercury and Gemini days, the Apollo program
moved things "up the coast", to Launch Complex 39 - directly across the
Indian River from
Park in Titusville. Besides being part of the
Space Walk-Of-Fame project,
this lovely park is
located two blocks south of State Route 406 (Garden Street - Exit 219 from
Interstate 95), at Broad St and the Indian River. Adjacent
Veteran's Memorial Park usually has
a loud speaker with NASA's audio commentary (I usually
watch launches from here). Many people also return launch after launch to
the area of US-1 and State Route 50.
