There are some of you who live close enough to watch from your house like my parents (lucky you!) or you may choose to sit over by the Batiquitos Lagoon for a nice view. The closest park is La Costa Canyon Park, (not the high school) at the top of the park there is an incredible view of the ocean and the fireworks. Please note there is no parking on La Costa Avenue with views of the fireworks, do not park on La Costa Avenue the police will give tickets to those doing so! If you choose to watch from your car be sure to stay on a side street. The old Vons shopping center would also be a great place to watch the fireworks if there are no signs up. Be safe and enjoy!
