The Visitor Center is located approximately 4 miles from the launch pads with a perfect view of every launch from ground to sky. Parking is available on a first come, first served basis so please plan to arrive at least 30-60 min before launch time. Please keep in mind pets are NOT allowed on Visitor Center grounds during a launch. All pets must be kept in the vehicle during a launch unless they are a service animal. RV's will NOT be allowed to park in the Visitor Center parking lot and groups arriving in large vehicles (vans, busses, etc) need to give 1 day advance notice. If groups in large vehicles arrive without giving advance notice, they will NOT be allowed to park in the Visitor Center parking lot.
