Yesterday, KPCC posed a very interesting question to us on Twitter: where are the best places to view fireworks in Los Angeles? We thought about it and, somehow, we had no idea! Literally nothing came into our heads. Thus, we sat down and thought about it and made a little list of some great spots to view tomorrow’s firework festivities based on the type of Angeleno that you are. Check it out and happy firework watching!
