    Mountain View 4th of July - The Village Residences

    Fourth of July is going to be very exciting when you rent in Mountain View CA. This is especially true if you happen to like fireworks, getting together with thousands of other excited people, and being a part of a real community. Because that’s what it’s all about on Independence Day. It’s about getting back together with your community and celebrating your love for America.

    Some of you may prefer to do something with your family and friends on a more intimate level. Maybe you’ll host a barbecue in your backyard or on the roof of your luxury apartment building. Maybe you’ll meet up at your favorite watering hole and get together for a few drinks. Or maybe you’ll do something during the day with your kids and take them out to breakfast or bring them to an amusement park or something else that may be fun and exciting for the whole family.

    Whatever the case may be, just know that the fireworks spectacular in Mountain View is going to take place at night, so you have plenty of time to do whatever it is you decide to do during the day and still have the unique opportunity of watching this beautiful fireworks display blanket the sky in beautiful colors and lights.

    With that said, let’s take a look at some ideas for things that you can do on the Fourth of July. We’ll also give you the specific details of how to watch the Mountain View fireworks spectacular this year as well.

    3 Ways to Spend the Day on 4th of July in Mountain View

    If you’re having a tough time coming up with ideas for things to do on the 4th of July, you’re in luck because we’d like to point you in the right direction. You do not have to make things too complicated or overly ambitious if you don’t want to. You can do simple things right in the Mountain View community that are fun, inexpensive, and totally worth your while.

    First, you can all wake up early and go out for breakfast on the morning of the 4th of July. As you know as a member of this community, there really are some amazing cafés with great tasting coffee, delicious food, and the perfect atmosphere to get together with friends and neighbors.

    Some ideas include visiting Baji’s Café, Café Venetia, Cloud Bistro, Café Borrone, Specialty’s Café & Bakery, and Olympus Caffé & Bakery to name a few excellent potential choices.

    Second, you can take in a movie and see one of the latest summer blockbusters if you want something to do indoors before spending the evening outside enjoying the fireworks show. There are always going to be excellent blockbuster films playing in the movie theater on the 4th of July, so look online to find out which picture you’d like to see, and then order your tickets on the Internet or at the box office. This is a great way to enjoy an entertaining and exhilarating thing to do with family members and friends while staying out of the heat if that’s what you prefer.

    Third, you could always have a barbecue on the roof of your luxury apartment building or in your backyard. Call up as many friends and neighbors as you’d like and invite them over to your home. Go to the grocery store and pick up lots of meat for grilling, rolls, condiments, beers, sodas, corn on the cob, and anything else you’d like to have during your delicious barbecued meal.

    You’ll absolutely have an amazing time if you do any or all of these recommendations on Independence Day. In fact, you could do all three of the things mentioned above and still have plenty of time to go to the fireworks spectacular that we’ll tell you about next.

    4th of July Fireworks Spectacular at Shoreline Amphitheater

    Every year, the Shoreline Amphitheater puts together an amazing fireworks display to celebrate the heroes of our nation. Not only do they have the greatest fireworks in the bay area, but they also have the San Francisco Symphony playing music for all in attendance.

    The beauty of this spectacular event is there is a lot to love and a whole lot going on as well. In fact, if you are looking to get free tickets, you can get four free tickets per family if you are a Mountain View resident. But please realize that these tickets go very quickly and they only have 2000 available, so you better act fast if you want to get free tickets to the fireworks spectacular show while sitting on the lawn.

    They also have discounted upper reserve tickets and lawn tickets available to residents. If you aren’t lucky enough to get them for free, each ticket is $13.50, which is a very fair discounted price.

    There’s going to be much more than a simple fireworks show happening on the Fourth of July. In fact, the doors of this event will open at 5 PM. If you get here early, you can participate in fun games and other family-friendly activities as you have a great time and wait for the big fireworks event to begin.

    Remember, the San Francisco Symphony is also going to be playing beautiful music while you are here. So if you’ve wanted to listen to the symphony orchestra, this is a great time to do so.
