    Default 4th of July in Oregon

    Hey everyone,

    I just have a quick question. I'm gonna be up at Silver Falls State Park in Oregon during the day of the 4th of July. I was wondering which city had a better fireworks show, Bend or Salem.

    We will be staying in Bend the following three nights after the 4th.

    Thanks,
    Brett

    But I'll throw in that I used to live near Portland (as a kid) and remember some GREAT fireworks shows on the coast -- they would shoot them out over the water! It was either Garibaldi or Rockaway (whichever of those two is farther north).

    So, is it too far for you to get to the coast instead? If I was up there that's what I'd do! -Bob

    Default Good Idea

    I had thought about checkin out a coastal town, but we are supposed to stay in Bend the next three days. Might be too long of drive from the coast to Bend to do anything the following day. I'll map it out though and see which coastal towns are closest.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Default Crescent City???

    Brett,

    Any chance you can still be in Crescent City in the 4th. According to this member, the fireworks are outstanding at Battery Point Lighthouse!

    Default Another idea

    That sounds really pretty. Actually won't be goin through there though. We are leavin on Tuesday July 3 after work and comin back on Sunday July 8.
    I kind of devised another plan. Instead of going from Salem to Bend on the 4th, I could visit Silver Falls, then head up to Portland for the fireworks show. On the 5th, we could get up and drive the Columbia River Gorge (I've always wanted to see this area) and pick up 97 at Biggs where I can cut down to Bend. It's about 150 miles longer than just going Salem to Bend, maybe that would work. Is that a feasible plan?

    Thanks,
    Brett
