In addition to the ever-important question of “what are you wearing,” everyone’s asking, “where are you watching?” Here’s our guide to viewing America’s famous explosions in the sky….
Private Beach Clubs- If you’re a member of the Bel Air Bay Club, Beach Club or Jonathan Club there is no question where you’ll be spending the 4th. Each of these clubs, located on the Pacific Coast Highway, have their own Independence Day celebrations that, according to the members, are unmatched by any other festivity to be found.
The Pacific Palisades – While we think everyday is a great day in the Palisades, this adorable sea-side town set aside the Santa Monica Mountains considers July 4th to be its Best Day of the Year. Join the locals and camp out on Sunset Blvd to secure a spot for the 64th Annual Parade, then head over to Pali High to see The English Beat headline a two and a half hour concert at The Stadium by the Sea with fireworks to follow.
Marina Del Rey – If you’re partying anywhere from Playa del Rey to Venice Beach perhaps you’ll catch a glimpse of the fireworks that the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches & Harbors are launching from a barge in the main channel of The Marina. The best seats in the house for this show include Mother’s Beach (one block south of Washington Blvd), Fisherman’s Village and Burton Chace Park.
Malibu – The fireworks show at Paradise Cove is popular for a couple reasons: 1. because it is one of the most gorgeous beach spots in So Cal, and 2. because you can drink. There is a cover charge to get in and it gets extremely crowded, so we suggest attending a private BBQ at a beach house in Malibu and watching with close friends from there.
