Here are some local tips on the best places to celebrate:
4th of July Fireworks in St. Augustine
Gather close to the Castillo de San Marcos for a great view of the St. Augustine 4th of July fireworks over the bay. The best viewing point is between the Castillo and the Bridge of Lions. The fireworks start at 9:30pm and include a great soundtrack of patriotic music for gazers to enjoy.
Several restaurants in downtown St. Augustine offer rooftop events for the fireworks celebration. The events include dinner buffets, full bar service, great views of the fireworks, and limited reservations. This is the best way to view the fireworks if you are looking for a quaint, romantic atmosphere.
Top of the Lighthouse
Watch the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean and then stay for the fireworks display from the top of the famous St. Augustine Lighthouse. The cost is $40 per person and space is very limited, so make your reservations early. This is a one-of-a-kind experience and offers more romantic ambiance.
