Hey guys, hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. This week, we have July 4 coming up which I’m so excited about. I’m traveling right now but that doesn’t mean I won’t be celebrating Independence Day! It’s one of the summer days I enjoy most because you get to kick back and relax! I also genuinely enjoy the fireworks and comfort food. If you’re planning to be in LA or haven’t brewed up plans for the holiday, I’m sharing my favorite things to do in LA on July 4.

Fireworks at the Chace Park in Marina Del Rey
I love the beach and have always felt that there’s something so special about fireworks over the ocean. One of the best places to catch a good show and experience that chill LA vibe is in Marina Del Rey. You will run into herds of people so go early and snag your spots (fireworks begin at 9 pm). There are also several waterfront restaurants that will allow you to enjoy the view.
Boat Cruise on the shores of Long Beach
I have always wanted to experience the July 4 fireworks cruise in Long Beach! So since I haven’t been able to fit it into my schedule, I’m going to recommend it to you! Don’t you agree that it would be an incredible experience to watch a bright, sizzling show from the deck of a beautiful boat?
Hike up Baldwin Park Overlook Stairs
If you’re an active, outdoorsy person, this spot is a MUST! Hike your way up to the top and you’ll find a blissful view of the the city. You’ll be able to catch all the action from the little suburbs around LA!
Santa Monica Parade
If you have visitors coming in from out of town and need a family-friendly junction, Santa Monica is a great place to be! There is no fireworks show, but there is a July 4 annual parade that starts early. It’s perfect because you can kick the day off here and make your way into Marina Del Rey for the more festive evening activities.
DTLA Block Party
The block party downtown is a classic. It’s inexpensive (love the myriad of food truck options) and it basically lasts all day. Have no fear about a wild crowd because no alcohol is allowed.
What are your plans for the 4th?
