Best Spots to Watch Fireworks in Key West

Let’s face it, the 4th of July is all about the fireworks. If you’re seeking the perfect spot to catch the fireworks show, you have a few choices. Fireworks go off at White Street Pier just after the sun goes down. Smathers Beach and Higgs Beach are two favorite spots to view the show. If you aren't staying in one of beach condos with a private view, be sure to arrive prepared early as those locations can get crowded quickly.
