A colleague asked me this morning what's the best place to park and to watch the Fourth of July fireworks show along the north shore. I have a system that generally works, in which I arrive late -- sometimes 15 minutes before the show begins -- and get home without much hassle from the number of vehicles leaving on Northwest Boulevard, Government Way, and Fourth Street. I also sit on City Beach. Which, as crowded as it appears, always has room for Mrs. O and me. How about you?
Question: Can you offer any tips for newbies wanting to see the fireworks show -- in terms of where to park and where to view it?
