    If you feel like getting off the beach mid-day, the businesses downtown have a very very long pagara on the 31st. Check out the videos on youtube.

    Where would you suggest is the best place to be to see the fireworks? Are they set off from the store area? I would assume the high-rises would block the view if you're on the beach.

    Have you seen the display in prior years? Do you know how long it usually lasts?

    the display lasts about 30+ minutes

    i would recommend being in the parking lots near the store.

    There was plenty of parking until the lot filled, but everyone listened to the simulcast on their car radios
    The fireworks were every bit as good as Disney's 4th of July fireworks.
