**== 4th of July in Ft. Lauderdale: Where are the fireworks?

Jump to last reply

We're headed to Ft. Lauderdale on Tuesday for a long-overdue visit to my in-laws. We are me, hubby, and 2 teenage boys. We're staying at the Embassy Suites Deerfield Beach because the in-laws live in Margate and our 2 requirements for a hotel are 1) a suite to spread out and 2) on the beach. We've stayed there before and have been happy with it. (There. That should forestall anyone who wants to talk us into a "better" place to stay!)

My question is: Where, beween Ft. Lauderdale and Boca (not too choosy about the location), is the best place to see fireworks on the 4th? Will any displays be shot off from the ocean, making the beach a good place for viewing? My MIL is planning to look into this too (which tells me they must usually stay home on the 4th!), but I wanted to see if anyone here has a good suggestion as well.

We're staying through Sunday, and as far as the boys are concerned, the highlight of their trip is going to be the parasailing their Nana promised them. I'll post a trip report when we return. Thanks in advance for any help!
