Every year I let readers know where to watch the fireworks for 4th of July. Channelside has always been a hot venue, however, if you want alternatives, I found a great resource on TBO.com’s website that I thought I’d share with you. If you are lucky enough to have a boat (or know someone who does) you can really get an up close personal view!
