July 4th in Malibu

There is no better time to come to Malibu than over the 4th of July weekend!
Don’t get me wrong, it’s always great here in Da’ Bu’BUT, The 4th of July is like Christmas, Disneyland and your birthday all rolled into one! My own teenagers drive from points unknown to be at Little Dume beach for the 4th of July in Malibu… Once they graduated high school here they flew the coop, but this is the one time every year they come back to nest!!! I asked why and they said its like a huge family reunion at the beach….That says a lot about the great folks in Malibu, they are like one big family here!
By the time the 4th of July rolls around every year, the fog has lifted, The drinks are chilled, the BBQ blazing and good times are had. Here is a run down of local fireworks for your 4th of July festivities!!

This Fourth of July, there will be four offshore firework shows in Malibu:
Malibu Colony Road
Broad Beach Road
Paradise Cove
and the 21600 block of Pacific Coast Highway.

Needless to say PCH will be busy so give your self enough time to park. There is nothing worse than watching the fireworks while parking your car!!!

The beaches will be crazy crowded so your best bet is to go to Zuma, where there is the biggest beach parking lot in town.
They also have food stands and public restrooms.
If you decide to grab a bite after the fireworks I have a few suggestions…
For amazing Italian V’s On PCH just south of the pier., Vasile the owner is beyond gracious!
Also love the Farm ON the pier. The farm is a casual atmosphere, perfect for you after a sandy sit down in the sand after the fireworks…
If you decide you need late night dining you need Tonys for greek food and dancing ,music and dining. The drinks here are weak but the atmosphere makes up for it. Coogies just reopened as Ollo, a farm to table family restaurant. I will be there trying it out this weekend for sure.

If you choose to be somewhere other than the beach, here are a few options for a nice hike or swim.

Malibu Community Pool
The pool will be open to the public on Friday, July 3, from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, but there will be no swim lessons on Friday. The pool will be closed on Saturday, July 4.
Malibu Senior Center
Closed Friday through Sunday, July 3-5
Trancas Canyon Park

Las Flores Creek Park
Open from 8:00 AM to dusk daily
Legacy Park

Malibu Equestrian Park

If you decide to just hang and shop cross creek and the lumbar yard offer the most stores. If you are near Zuma beach I suggest Pinnacle, a nice local womens and childrens clothing store. They are super cool there…
Speaking of cool, stay hydrated, slathered with sunscreen and above all have fun! Enjoy our 27 miles of amazing beaches!
