Where to Watch Fireworks in Boston in 2019

The Charles may seem like it’s the only option for fireworks in the city, but we pulled the best spots from Thrillest to catch fireworks that aren’t on the river.

Boston Harbor

The Seaport District is setting off fireworks at 9 pm on Tuesday 7/2. Hit a rooftop bar like Envoy or Yotel for the best views over the water, or enjoy dinner at the Barking Crab.


Rose Kennedy Greenway

Stop by the financial district at 8 pm this Thursday for a big-screen viewing of the fireworks on the Esplanade. It will be waaay less crowded.


Wollaston Beach

Head to Quincy to catch fireworks on the beach at 10:30 pm. Get there early and plan a late picnic dinner on the water.
