The Space Coast Office of Tourism offers the following tips for visitors wishing to view the final launch:

-Arrive early - at least five to six hours - to get a good spot. For a map of locations with great views visit

-Bring sunscreen, water and snacks. Expect temperatures to be in the 90's.

-Plan to hang out for a while afterwards to avoid the traffic. If you're watching at the beach enjoy the ocean or walk to restaurant for a meal.

-The Cocoa Beach and Titusville areas will be the most popular, but spectators can get great views all the way south to Satellite Beach.

-Most importantly - be safe and use good judgment
