the views to the gantry were amazing and this is the closest you can get to the launch site where the space shuttles used to take off
Where the Apollo program launched most and most of the shuttles, 39A is not going to be used anymore unless a private contractor wants it. 39B looks totally different because contractors plan to use it for future flights. I got the closest I have ever been to 39A, Rich in history!
Inc in the tour this is a great stop to see the launch pads the shuttle went from.take a telescope or binoculars for best view of new atlas facility.lifts available for those who do not fancy the high climb in the heat.

there are so many places to visit and experience, but this by far took to the top of the list.
