Fourth of July on 362 Miles of Oregon Coast: North, Central and South Coast

(Oregon Coast) – From Brookings to Astoria, the entire Oregon coast will light up with fireworks and other enticing celebrations. Some beach areas even feature their displays on the third of July, allowing for two days of pyrotechnic fun, if you plan it right. Some coastal burghs pull out the stops on massive displays; some go the more relaxed route of simple parties. Others combine it all into one gargantuan good time. (Above: fireworks at Seaside).
