    Village of Baytown for those of you that do not want to enter the war-zone of Grayton Beach.

    Our tradition is to cruise to the Marina in Panama City via the intercoastal by boat, and watch from there. It's an awesome trip, particularly coming home by moonlite through the intercoastal. The sky reflects on the perfectly calm water creating a beautiful site!

    The best place is Thunder Hill on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Boone, NC!!!! You can see fireworks from at least 10 different towns in two different states.:clap:

    I have seen mention of this several times, but have yet to find an answer.

    Is there a firewords display in the 30-A area? If so when and where?

    In years past, we have seen a display by (I think) the Hilton in Sandestin--not just on the 4th--several times during the week of, also the harbor in Destin...............but I am wanting something in our area--we will be in Seagrove B.

    Also, I just saw something posted about the parade in Seaside at 8:00 (I assume that is PM)--what is that like?

    And while I am at it, does anyone know the dates and times of the display at the Destin Harbor?

    I will have my 2 and 4 year olds with me, safety is a issue. Although they are both fast runners!

    Washington DC puts on a great show, but my personal favorite were viewed sitting on a mountain top looking back over the village of SnowMass, CO, miles away.

    Rosemary Beach Fireworks

    If we are staying on Seagrove Beach will we be able to view the great fireworks that they set off in Rosemary Beach? We heard they are the best but we are trying to figure out if we will need to get closer. Thanks!

    You will need to get closer. The middle of Seagrove (HWY 395) is 8 miles from Rosemary Beach.

    Last year (and probably this year) we went to Inlet Beach. Because of the curve of the Gulf we could see Pier Park, Carillon, and then ROsemary, Seaside and many more up and down the Gulf.

    Plenty of parking and was safe. :wave:

    Seaside usually does a very nice show from a boat in the water. Call to make certain they are doing it this year.

    Grayton Beach is a bit too crazy for me....liquor and fireworks don't mix.

    The Seaside Parade is a lot of funn. Tell me where you will be standing and I will throw you some candy! :wave:

    Ok, since we are not just including SoWal,


    Disney World, all the way, what a show, fireworks in the round, have to see it to believe it.

    Yikes it is getting close isn't it!

    PC-Downtown marina, very crowded and traffic is ungodly.
    PCB-The Princess condominiums has a private show done by a resident. It's actually larger than PC's display.
    Also PCB does one at Pier Park if I remember correctly. Traffic should be better since it's close to a highway.
    Carillon Beach-I've heard of it, but never seen it.
    Rosemary Beach-see above
    Seaside-Very nice display over Gulf, you can sit in the amphitheatre and watch, but again traffic is a draw back.
    Grayton Beach-"amatuer" show, but a lot of drinking, not recommended for small children, pregnant women, or those with heart conditions.
    Anything west of 30A-probably nice, but traffic and crowds will be ungodly! If you do go best bet is to hunker down and wait til most people leave. This isn't always the best option for folks with small children.

    Also a reminder for renters! If you are leaving on Saturday there are most likely people coming in behind you. If you party please remember your check out time and be courteous to those coming in, you wouldn't want to wait to get in because someone couldn't get out of bed in time. ;-)
