Spectators flock to Cocoa Beach to watch historic SpaceX launch

Spectators flock to hotels such as the LaQuinta hotel in Cocoa Beach Pier in anticipation of the SpaceX Falcon 9 launch Saturday. The hotels in Cocoa Beach are completely sold-out. For people visiting Cocoa Beach, they are in for a rude awakening when the book a hotel in Cocoa Beach and see how hold and trashy some are. This is all in anticipation of the first crewed mission since the space shuttle program retired in 2011.
