Hi...we'll be camping at Fort Stevens State Park for independence day this year. Where is the best place to view the fireworks at Seaside? We'll have 4 adults and 4 kids with us. Thanks in advance for your help!
The fireworks are directly in front of the Broadway St turn-around. We always parked on the north side of Broadway and set up our chairs along the seawall on N Prom, within a couple blocks of Broadway. Lots of people set up on the beach, have a fire, etc. Traffic will be very slow getting out of Seaside and my best advice is to follow Necanicum Dr north to 12th Ave. It's furthest north bridge across the river and 12th Ave has a lighted intersection onto Hwy 101. The scariest thing about the traffic (to me) is trying to turn left onto Hwy 101 from any of the intersections without traffic lights! I notice the Seasideor.com site says: "It is recommended that visitors find parking on the east side of the Necanicum river, in order to avoid a 60 – 90 minute exit time after the show. Please only park in legally designated parking areas and avoid private property."
And it gets cold! Be sure to bring sweatshirts/jackets.
