Independence Day is nearly here, and, regardless of age, the majesty of fireworks is still one thing that captivates children and adults alike. Some will plot and plan to figure out where they can get the best views of the city’s best shows. Others will kick back and sit out on their own decks or lay down in their backyards under those beautiful and spacious skies for the best seat in the city. We explore some of the homes on the Eastside that offer those spectacular views and the promise of an entertaining evening of fireworks.
4217 Camino Real, 4bd. $820,000
This property perched up nin Mt. Washington has a deck that wraps around the house. From its various vantage points views of the Dodger Stadium’s fireworks might be accompanied by those from the Rose Bowl.
1401 Wildwood Dr., 3bd, $749,000
This Eagle Rock home has views from the eagle’s nest. This home’s position, and its views out to the northeast are very likely to treat its owners to a fantastic view of the Rose Bowl’s fireworks spectacular. Even without fireworks, nobody’s complaining about this view.
Tucked into the hills of Echo Park, this home has virtually 180-degree views of downtown. There’s no way you’re missing July 4th fireworks at Grand Park from here.
This Lincoln Heights condo touts downtown and rolling hillside views. If downtown fireworks are high enough to clear the rest of the complex, this condo’s decks could be an ideal spot to spend the 4th.
