Has anyone "been there done that" with watching a live launch of a reasonable size rocket? Girlfriend and I live in the PNW and I feel like this is the sort of thing that everyone should see at least once in their lifetime so I'm kind of interested in finding out what is involved in going to watch one. I've done a google search, seen a massively long list of every launch scheduled in the next year but as an outsider I don't know what is what on this. I'd prefer to make the journey really count if we were to go and see something on the larger side. Being that we live in the PNW and it would be a road trip on limited vacation days I think we would need to stay within or along the coast/Idaho/Nevada. California would be ideal, being able to pass by the grand canyon would also be ideal.
Can anyone guide me to a good starting point on what to watch out for?
