My daughter would like to view the Boston fireworks, but not from up close (i.e., dealing with crowds). Suggestions on where in Somerville we could go for a decent view of the Boston sky tomorrow night?

Prospect Hill park has a pretty decent view.

Not in Somerville, but Robbins Farm Park in Arlington has a nice view.

great view, but also quite crowded.

Ah, good to know -- I know it's got a good view of Boston in general, I've never actually been up there for fireworks specifically. :^)

I also read recently that Robbins Farm is undergoing some construction (for lack of a better term) -- so there will probably be less space for the large crowd than usual.

Robbins Farm isn't hosting their usual fireworks viewing at all this year, due to that construction.

The roof of the library at Tufts is also a good spot to watch.

I haven't tried this for fireworks, but sometimes my workout class at Assembly goes up to the top floor of the garage. It's a lovely view of the city, actually. And it must be almost perfectly aimed at the Charles where the fireworks boats are.

I'm thinking I might try that this year and see. So I haven't tried it, but....

Also, JP Licks downstairs.

If you did this, how was it?

I ended up too tired. I didn't realize how late the fireworks were, and I had spent much of the afternoon paddling on the Malden River. By 10:00 I was already too sleepy to go over.
