Where did you watch the fireworks?

Local fireworks The 4th, one of my favorite holidays, has come and gone. I was out of town for it, but wanted to see where people watched the fireworks in and around our area.

I wondered if a usual spot, 13th Street next to Cardozo High School, would still be a good one for fireworks since the construction going on there. Another good spot would be the Old Soldiers Home, who've opened up for a couple of years now. And of course, somebody's rooftop is always good.

But maybe there are other spots? Where did you go? Let everybody know in the comments.


  1. Didn't see DC's fireworks this year. The last few years have left me underwhelmed. Standing on a rooftop with a panoramic view of all the illegal fireworks going off around the city is much more exciting. This year I was at a bbq in Petworth put on by some people who'd driven to Pennsylvania earlier in the day to buy fireworks for us to set off. I got to light my very first one ever. It was a great time!

  2. Considered going to the Mall since I'm working so close, but considering past years and the battle to get on a train afterward, I went to a friend's place in Arlington and all of us watched the fireworks on the rooftop.
