I will be staying in the French quarter over the 4th. I won’t have a car. What are options for watching fireworks?
They have the on the River,, go down somewhere on the RIverfront and you will see them fine
it gets crowded...be prepared
Do you recommend we bring a chair?
We did this last year. You can bring a chair, but as Roseann mentions, it gets very crowded. We just stood on the riverbank and enjoyed the beauty and made new friends. It's worth the chaos, trust me.
If you bring a chair, and everyone is standing in front of you....you won't see anything. Just get there as early as possible without making yourself stand around for too long.
