Plans changed, boat isn't coming this year as I'm bringing it to the Stuart races the same weekend instead. Kinda ticked off the series' scheduled the same weekend. . Where are some recommended viewing points from land?

Near the pier, that's where they make the turn on the north side and seems the best. Was on it one year but like the beach better so you can move around.

Show up early parking is a bitc#.

Glad to see this reply. Do you know from past experience that the La Quinta is a good viewing spot? I was also looking at the Hilton Oceanfront. I live an hour north, but I'm not familiar with the hotels down there. Of course a balcony would be great, but so would a rooftop restaurant/bar. Any other ideas?

Good deal; glad to hear it. Yeah I'd be bringin' "Miss America" and a large cooler full of adult beverages... Weather forecast looks good so far.... I'm going to thoroughly check hotel prices and availability, and pull the trigger soon. Thanks for the input. And no, Wildman_grafix, I knew the La Quinta he was talking about. I have a really good hotel map on Trip Advisor, overlaid onto the SBI Course Map. OK guys, how about places to eat and drink? I'm going to look at some of my favorite bands' schedules too. Ah, OK, says Hypersona at Grills Port Canaveral Sunday at 3; that's cool! We haven't seen them in a WHILE. There are other bands playing all weekend; you really can't go wrong... and Miliken's Reef is good too... This might be an EPIC weekend!
