Start by heading out to a prime vantage point, like Vista View Park (loosely translated to View View Park, and located at 4001 SW 142nd Ave., Davie). The self-described hilly park sports one of the highest elevations in South Florida, making it possible (on a clear night) to bear witness to the vibrant grand finales of celebrations in Davie, Miramar, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Sunrise, and beyond. The park will stay open until 11 p.m. to accommodate the splosions, and it only costs $5 per carload or $1.50 per walk-in to enter. Call 954-327-8797.
