Celebrating Independence Day Near Mission Beach
Coastal San Diego offers a multitude of choices for celebrating the 4th of July with breathtaking fireworks displays over Mission Bay. You can view the fireworks in a romantic evening walk along Mission Beach. If you are interested in a low-key do-it-yourself style BBQ celebration, South Shores Park has tremendous views with fire pits, as does Tecolote Shores Park, although Tecolote has picnic tables and grills, as well. Picnickers can also find gorgeous views at Fiesta Island and Crown Point Park and Beach. Unfortunately these are not “secret spots,” so get there early to make sure you have a great seat!
On July 3rd, Paradise Point Resort & Spa will have its 9th annual “All American BBQ and Fireworks Extravaganza,” San Diego’s largest 25 minute-long firework show over Mission Bay.

Seaworld will be hosting Shamu’s SkySplash Fireworks Finale on July 3 and 4, and on subsequent weekend evenings through Sept. 6.
