    You need to get over to Titusville for the amazing US Spacewalk if Fame museum. It's free, they've lots of spec hardware and things donated by astronauts. It makes everything feel more real. Do it.

    Book guided tours in advance to see best sights & arrive early to see attractions on days around launch. "Discover KSC" tour best done after launch, it can't drive by pad when shuttle is out there.

    If you're over the age of 11, the Shuttle Launch Experience is not worth the wait. You're at NASA, not an amusement park. Explore the museums and check out the Saturn V Center — simply incredible.

    Interesting Fun Fact: When astronauts exercise on the Shuttle, lack of gravity prevents the sweat from falling off their bodies. The sweat collects in puddles on their bodies.
