Because the firework are shot from the harbor in the center of town, there are plenty of spots along the beach to watch the display.

Unfortunately the tide is high at 9:16 pm that night, so there won’t be as much beach as usual, but there’s still plenty of room.

Here are a few suggestion.

– Beach behind Whaler’s Wharf. (Town center towards West End) Entrances:

  • Look for the Big Blue Adirondack Chair | Directions
  • Through Whaler’s Wharf | Directions
  • Public landing between The Fire Station #2 and Bubula’s | Directions
  • West End Parking Lot (Far West End) | Directions

– Beach along the back of Commercial St (Town Center to East End). Entrances:

– Restaurants: If you make reservations now at one of the restaurants near the beach, you may get a great view in a comfortable setting. Here are some restaurants to consider:

– Bars: A few bars are located on the Harbor too!
