Best Places to See Fireworks from Your Car

Fourth of July barbecues, annual street fair, and other festivities are always a blast but everyone can agree that the best part of this holiday is the fireworks. Everyone piles into cars and drives to find the best spot to park and watch the explosion in the sky. If you aren’t sure where the best place is to view fireworks this year check out a few of these places in Orange County. 

Every year there is the Annual Street Faire located on Olympiad Road, which has a carnival feel with its games, music, rides, and delicious food.

Dana Point’s fireworks extravaganza has the best aerial firework show. You will be blown away as the fireworks explode over Doheny State Beach and make you feel patriotic. You can also tune into the local KSBR 88.5 Fm radio and listen along to the music. If you don’t want to deal with traffic afterward they provide a free shuttle service to bus you into the area.
