Arlington Spots to View DC Fireworks

The Netherlands Carillon is the only spot I've tried, pre-kids! (but you do have to park far and maybe walk 0.5 to 1 mile). But Stay Arlington has a great blog post with 5 spots to view the National Mall Fireworks from Arlington! It includes lots of details plus Instagram posts from those spots.


Alexandria City Fireworks

  1. USA/Alexandria Birthday Celebration - July 9th. I went once pre-kids and this is a great fireworks show without the National Mall crowds. Although it can still get crowded so recommend going earlier.

4th of July Kids Gear from Amazon

Thought these light-up necklaces are cool for kids while waiting for fireworks.

And these Potato Sack Race Bags are fun for a backyard party. Comes with headbands and prize medals too!
