You'll find the best viewing locations along Christopher Columbus Park and Long Wharf in the North End, the South Boston Waterfront (especially around Fan Pier/Seaport), the Downtown Waterfront, and Piers Park in East Boston.
Even better - watch the show over dinner or drinks at Pier 6 in Charlestown or any of the Seaport waterfront restaurants. You won't be the only one with this idea so be sure to make reservations!
For hotels with views, consider South Boston waterfront hotels, downtown waterfront hotels, and North End hotels. Compare prices online if you like but call the hotel of your choice to book a room with a view or ask if they have a rooftop deck where they can be seen!
The Soundtrack of the Fireworks will be broadcasted LIVE on MAGIC 106.7 the evening of the show beginning at 8:00pm. Be sure to tune in for the full effect!
