Where to watch rockets launch?

I'm interested to see a full scale rocket launch and seem to be pretty close to an ideal place. I live on the border of Ventura and LA counties not too far away form Vandenberg AFB. I caught one rocket launch years ago while I was driving down into Camarillo and haven't seen one since. I checked this website for rocket launches and one is scheduled for Oct 24. My question is: Where is a good place to go to watch the launch? I've been driving around the Malibu canyons and farmland of Camarillo to find a spot away from city lights where I could park on the side of the road or rest spot and maybe set up a chair and tripod. I know nothing of rockets and their trajectory from this base other than It's a Delta II and is supposed to be one of the most visible.
