4th of July 2021 in La Jolla

Escape the heat of summer back home and come enjoy the beautiful coastal environment of La Jolla. Our San Diego community is the perfect place to spend your summer vacation, especially for the upcoming 4th of July holiday. This American tradition needs to be celebrated with style and exciting activities; you can find all of that and more here! Take a look at what you can expect for the 4th of July in La Jolla: 

La Jolla Fireworks 

Ask anyone about their favorite part of 4th of July celebrations and we guarantee they will always say the fireworks display at the end of the night. While last year saw many of the fireworks celebrations across the greater San Diego get cancelled, many have been scheduled to return this year. This includes our very own La Jolla Fireworks celebration that will take place the evening of July 4th. Our fireworks celebration is often something special thanks to the beautiful La Jolla Cove surrounding you. Kick back on the beach and stare up as the night sky is lit up with beautiful fireworks. The display will take place at Ellen Browning Scripps Park at 9:00 PM. Guests are encouraged to get there early as the viewing areas can get busy. Make sure to bring a blanket to lay down on the grass in the park and a small flashlight to help you navigate after the show has ended. Once the fireworks are over, you can enjoy the area with plenty of restaurants and bars that will be open.  

Enjoy La Jolla Cove 

Make sure to enjoy the rest of what La Jolla has to offer during your 4th of July stay. La Jolla Cove is always a great place to start with plenty available to entertain visitors. Kayak out onto the water and take a peek at the local caves. Look out onto the Cove’s shores, where hundreds of sea lions and seals majestically lay out under the sun. Local art galleries and museums are a great way to beat the hotter summer days indoors. La Jolla really is the gem of Southern California.

Top Things to do in La Jolla For the 4th of July

Not only is La Jolla a gorgeous vacation destination all year long, but it’s also a wonderful place to kick off your 4th of July celebrations. Read on below to find out more about our top things to do in La Jolla for Independence Day!

Celebrate Independence Day with These Top Things to do in La Jolla!

As one of the top neighborhoods in “America’s Finest City” (which refers to San Diego, in case you were curious), La Jolla has its own fireworks display that competes with the best of San Diego’s other suburbs.

The free event involves a fireworks show in La Jolla Cove that takes place from 8:00pm until 10:00pm on the night of July 4th, with fireworks being launched at 9:00pm. An insider tip: get a spot at nearby Ellen Browning Scripps Park early, as it enjoys the best views of the spectacle. If you get there early enough, you can even enjoy snorkeling and scuba diving in La Jolla Cove itself, then treat yourself to one of the stunning sunset views that the area is famous for.

Leading up to the fireworks, you can also enjoy the San Diego County Fair at Del Mar Fairgrounds nearby to the north, which has traditional carnival-style amusement and thrill rides. You can also head south and take the ferry to Coronado to enjoy a 10:00am Independence Day parade and a 4:00pm concert in Spreckels Park during the day.

Alternatively, Escondido is having its own Independence Day festival at the California Center for the Arts, while nearby Poway celebrates the holiday with an all-day event themed around old-fashioned, turn of the twentieth century amusements.

Another option for a spectacular fireworks display in the area is the famous Big Bay Boom in North San Diego Bay. One of the largest fireworks displays in the country, this amazing display can be seen from just about any town along the San Diego Bay, making it an ideal choice if you happen to be hanging out in downtown San Diego or in the Gaslamp Quarter as the 9:00pm celebration begins.
