Whether you plan to head out on a camping trip, soak in some sun at the lake or just take a drive to visit family, we’ve rounded up the top Fourth of July 2019 fireworks displays to add to your vacation plans.
Big Bay Boom: San Diego
If you’re heading to the West Coast, San Diego’s Big Bay Boom is considered one of the loudest fireworks shows in the nation.

But here’s an insider tip – the best way to watch is on the water! Consider chartering a boat or renting a kayak to get the best views.
