Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We're still wrapping up June, but the 4th of July is looming, and the celebrations will be underway in full force next weekend. Although some local communities are having to scrap public fireworks displays due to budget concerns, there are still plenty of places around the region where you can join in the festive fun and see the rockets' red glare and bombs bursting in air for the nation's birthday.Travelin' Local has put together an awesome and comprehensive list of The Best Places in L.A. to Watch the July 4th Fireworks.

Their list is pretty thorough, so we'll defer to them with thanks for the work it took to put that together. And now that you know your options...where will you go to watch fireworks next weekend for the 4th of July?
