Agreed as an Englishman I found that place superb and didn't want to come away really is a great place to visit and the size of the shuttle hanger is amazing. The weather helped as well even if it was Hurricane season

Cape Canaveral is really great, but I would be remiss if I didn't advise a trip to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum and the Annex at Dulles Airport in Washington DC. They have an amazing collection of Aircraft and Spacecraft. The test Shuttle Enterprise is at the Annex.

Oh yeah! Air and Space museum in DC is one of my favorite places on earth. Definitely worth going to if you're planning a trip to the states.
I've heard of many great leaders. I've yet to hear of a single great committee.

Don't forget that the national history museum is there as well, with Southern Railways 1401, the last remaining Ps-4.

For those that did not hear, OV-103 (better known as Discovery), has made it's final (planned) flight, being ferried from Florida to Washington DC, where it will take OV-101's place at the Smithsonian. Enterprise (OV-101) is set to ferry to New York City to join the Intrepid Museum.

The most famous Apollo spaceship that I remember from my childhood was the unnumbered Apollo that took part in the joint "Soyuz-Apollo" space project and started international collaboration and cooperation in space.
