Where To View Fireworks On The 4th Of July *San Diego County*

elvgren pinup firecracker fourth of july

Ah, the 4th of July!  Backyard barbecues, cocktails, sun, swimsuits, and fireworks.   This pinup always forgets to stay up and watch the fireworks.  I’m usually back inside by that time snacking on leftover berry pie.

This year, I have been getting all sorts of questions about WHERE you can watch the fireworks displays in San Diego county.  Some of the cities have cancelled their fireworks, and some have started them again.  So, here’s the list for my Southern California bees.  You can find the whole list for San Diego county here.
