The 4th of July is just days away and that means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to watch fireworks. That being said, no two viewing locations are the same. So with that in mind, 5 of the best spots to watch the Seattle 4th of July firework.
If you’re not keen on going to Capitol Hill you can always head over to the opposite hill, Queen Anne. There you can head to spots like the Queen Anne Greenbelt, 5th and Lynn Park, and more. Further down the hill you can Westlake Greenbelt.
What’s a better way to view the fireworks than on the water? Many choose to enjoy a float in Lake Union as their viewing venue for the show. So find that friend with a boat or consider renting your own for the big day.
Along the slope of Capitol Hill, you’ll find Lakeview Blvd E. This winding stretch of road has several places where you can find glimpses of Lake Union. Walk up and down the road or find one spot to view the show, the choice is yours.
Want to be in north Seattle but avoid Gas Works Park? Consider Wallingford Ave N. The street runs towards Lake Union and provides some decent views the close you are to the lake. That being said you can also try any of the neighboring streets.
The closest you can get to Gas Works without actually being in the is N Northlake Way. The stretch of road runs along the lake giving you plenty of spots to view the show in all its glory. Just keep in mind that the closer you get to the park, the busier it’s likely to be.
Happy 4th of July, Seattle!
