Independence Day 2011
Ocean Shores, WA

July 4, 2011 ~ Independence Day fell on a Monday and we saw beautifully sunny skies, as well as more visitors than last year. Independence Day is one of the greatest and most amazing sites visitors and locals can see along the beaches of Ocean Shores and the North Beach. July 4th brings in the greatest number of tourists than any other weekend or event. The beaches are lined with cars and people packing it in as nightime approaches. The fireworks can be heard as the days lead up to the 4th, but America's birthday brings the most unbelievable sites you will see as the sky is lit up with tons of colorful fireworks. There are personal firework displays one right after the other. Ocean City, located about 3 miles north of Ocean Shores, provides the big firework display off of 2nd Ave, the beach access street. I enjoyed the evening and night with some friends lighting off a few of our own fireworks. I was able to get some great shots overseeing the action on the beach from my GMC Yukon. To all of those who have not spent July 4th in Ocean Shores -- you must come out and see it for yourself.
