Spend the day picnicking, swimming in the ocean, walking and playing in the sand and shopping along Newport Ave. Then bundle up as the sun sets and pull up a blanket for a really spectacular fireworks display launched from the OB Pier at 9pm.
Location: The Ocean Beach Pier at the end of Newport Ave. Google Maps
Take 8W until it ends at the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Make a left, and you are there! Follow signs for Sunset Cliffs Blvd. and turn right on Newport Ave.
