Newport Beach has some of the best, most colorful and safest 4th of July Firework shows! Theres so many different places to view, some of my favorites include:
Galaxy Park - you can put chairs right on the bluff and be able to see the the fireworks show from the Newport Dunes.
Besides obviously seeing the fireworks show from the Newport Dunes, Castaways Park is also a great place to view the fireworks. There's no tall trees along the walk way to block your view, however just be careful you aren't blocking the residents who's backyards line up right next to the trail!
Westcliff Park is right across from the Newport Dunes, and also is a great vantage point for the fireworks going off at the Dunes as well as being able to see the fireworks off the barge at Newport Pier!
