July 4th fireworks Viewing


We will be staying at the Westin downtown July 4th, and want to view the fireworks on Lake Union. Can anyone recommend the best place to view them from? And how to get there without a car?

What floor is your room at the Westin and facing which direction? If it's a high floor facing north that could be about the best view in town!

Actually going to Gasworks Park for the fireworks is going to be extremely crowded and a big hassle. You could work it out on Metro bus, but I'd probably spring for a taxi. Getting home is going to be a problem just because it's so crowded, so many people doing what you describe.

Living here I usually watch the fireworks from someone's balcony or just standing out on the streets in various places around the city that have a good view out over Lake Union (like on lower Capitol Hill for example).
