Light up the night in the land of the free this July 4th with all that South Bay has to offer for an unforgettable Independence Day. Manhattan Beach is the best place to enjoy food, fun, and oceanfront fireworks. Join us at the beach with this pocket guide to patriotic partying.
Beach and Brunch
The Strand House in Manhattan Beach is hosting a special 4th of July brunch featuring mouth-watering favorites from classic eggs benedict to coconut chia pudding. Little diners will love the stuffed French toast, while couples, singles, and friends can toast to freedom with a fabulous mimosa.
Home of the Brave
Feeling brave this July 4th? Head on down to nearby Hermosa Beach for the Ironman Triathlon. Put your grit to the test with 1 mile run, 1 mile surfboard paddle, and the grand finale -- chug a 6-pack of your favorite beer! The fun begins at 9 a.m., with spectators and participants gathering early in the day. 21+ only.
Manhattan Beach is throwing a citywide pool party for the whole family! Bring the kids down to Begg Pool from 10:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 4th and cool off before the big fireworks show. Entry tickets are just $5 -- perfect for keeping your whole clan happy and cool.
If trekking to the community pool party seems like too much of a wrinkle in your relaxation plans, host your own at our luxurious, heated pool. Every stay at the Sea View Inn comes complete with beach toys for the kids, towels, and boogie boards. Mom's and dad's can enjoy a beverage poolside while the kids splash, play, and create lifelong memories.
Fireworks Over the Ocean
The main event of any Independence Day is, of course, fireworks! There's no better place to watch a spectacular display than at the South Bay's world famous firework shows. Our number pick for a great show is Redondo Beach's Seaside Lagoon. The lagoon offers live music and all day entertainment. Fireworks can be viewed from the pier, but we recommend reserving your spot early. The show starts at 9:00 a.m. and features a breath taking display across the water.
Other great spots to enjoy the night include Torrance, Marina Del Rey, and nearby El Segundo.
